Jeep to introduce four EV SUVs by 2025
Jeep wants to become one of the leading electrified SUV brands in the world, and they are already making significant strides towards that plan.
According to the manufacturer, they are bringing four new EVs by 2025 to the North American and European markets before going all-electric in Europe and 50% electric in the States by 2030. On what Jeep calls "4xe day", they recently showed the first images of the all-new Jeep Recon, Wagoneer S, and the Avenger EV SUVs.
Let's start with perhaps the most Wrangler-like in Jeep's upcoming EV lineup – the Recon. The rugged-looking SUV is equipped with removable doors and glasses, as well as a one-touch power top for open-air overlanding adventures. In terms of its off-road capabilities, the Recon will have Jeep's renowned Selec-Terrain management system and will feature an e-locker axle technology to go along with its beefy all-terrain tires.
While those are the only details the manufacturer has revealed, for now, Jeep says the global SUV will be shown to the public by next year. However, production of the Recon EV is scheduled for 2024 and will be sold in major markets around the world.
Jeep Wagoneer S
On the other hand, Jeep has revealed a fully-electric variant of the Wagoneer full-size SUV called Wagoneer S. For all intents and purposes, the Wagoneer S is essentially the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk of the Wagoneer lineup, only this one's an EV.
Jeep says the Wagoneer S will have 600 horsepower and a 0 to 100 km/h time of around 3.5 seconds. Aside from that immense performance, Jeep is also targeting the SUV to have an electric driving range of up to 640 kilometers on a single charge.
Last but not least is Jeep's first-ever fully-electric SUV, the Avenger. First shown during Stellantis' Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan presentation earlier this year, the Avenger is debuting much earlier than the Recon and Wagoneer S. The manufacturer says the little Jeep will have its official launch at the Paris Motor Show on October 17 and will roll out in European markets by early 2023.
In case you've noticed, Jeep has only shown three out of four new EVs that will be brought to Europe and North America by 2025, leaving one model that's yet to be bared by the manufacturer. However, reports say the fourth model is expected to be announced at the Detroit Auto Show happening next week.
