The world-known Jeep brand is preparing for its own reboot that will pass under the sign of electrification – and this already has three confirmations in the form of three models. These three models are completely different in their class, design, and purpose. But what they have in common is that they are all electric cars. And what they have in common is that they will all become production models in the coming years. And the first will be…
A compact crossover that should become the brand’s sales engine in the all-European market. The manufacturer declares the Jeep Avenger model as an electric car, promising a range of about 400 km, but previously there was also information about ICE models.
How will it be in reality? We will soon find out – the official presentation of Jeep Avenger should take place in October this year, and sales will start in early 2023. Production of the Jeep Avenger crossover will be organized in Poland.
Jeep Wagoneer S
It is considered a concept, but it looks almost like a finished model – it is about the Jeep Wagoneer S crossover, which should be part of the flagship Wagoneer family.
Currently, there are traditional cars with internal combustion engines, but the Jeep Wagoneer S electric car will be an interesting “alternative”. And it will happen quite quickly: the debut of the serial model is planned for 2023, and sales will start in 2024.
What do we already know? For example, it is known that the most powerful versions of the Jeep Wagoneer S should get electric motors with a total capacity of about 600 hp, which will be enough to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds. It is also known that the most “long-range” versions of the Jeep Wagoneer S will be able to travel about 400 miles (644 km).
Therefore, the specifications of the future electric car Jeep Wagoneer S already look quite good: it fully corresponds to the status of the flagship.
Also a concept, also a kind of flagship – but completely different. After all, the future Jeep Recon electric car is positioned as a “Wrangler EV”: maximum emphasis on all-terrain capabilities.
For example, the promised Selec-Terrain system for setting up an electric car for different off-road conditions, simulation of E-Locker differential locks, tires with advanced off-road protection, extra-strong towing hooks, and bottom protection. Also, the possibility of “disassembling the electric car” is provided: you can remove the body panels for maximum integration with the surrounding world.
The electric SUV will be produced in North America, but intended for sales in various countries – that is, it will also be in the European market. And this, accordingly, means chances to see him in Ukraine as well. We don’t have to wait long: the serial version of the Jeep Recon electric car will debut in 2023, and the start of sales is planned for 2024.
Three separate models, but what’s the overall aim?
The overall goal is the maximum electrification of the Jeep brand. Already by 2025, the Jeep brand should release four electric cars and we already know three of them. Another important date is the year 2030: by that time, 50% of the total sales of the Jeep brand should consist of electric vehicles. And for the European market, all 100% of Jeep sales must be electric cars.
So, everything is clear: the overall goal is the maximum electrification of the Jeep brand which starts right now.
