In a bid to become a global leader of zero-emission SUVs, Jeep will introduce four all-electric SUVs in North America and in Europe by 2025. The automaker adds that 50% of sales in the U.S. and 100% of sales in Europe will be battery-electric vehicles (BEV) by 2030. That said, the brand premieres two all-new, all-electric, global SUVs – the new Jeep Avenger and Jeep Recon Concept.
Jeep Recon Concept
One of the first all-new electric SUVs that will launch in North America is the Jeep Recon.
This all-new vehicle is aimed at those who love to explore extreme adventures in near silence with a rugged, fully electric vehicle package. According to Jeep, the Recon is designed from the ground up to be 100% Jeep 4×4 and 100% zero emission. This SUV will be offered exclusively as a BEV, and is said to enhance off-roading adventures with the following:
- True trail-rated capability with Jeep Selec-Terrain traction management system, e-locker axle technology, under-body protection, tow hooks and aggressive off-road tires
- Jeep open-air freedom with a one-touch powertop, removable doors and glass
- The latest-generation Uconnect system, including detailed travel guides of the most notable off-road trails.
The all-new Jeep Avenger, to be introduced in Europe and other markets, such as Japan and South Korea, will be positioned under the Jeep Renegade and will be produced in the high-efficiency plant in Tychy, Poland. Jeep is targeting an electric range of 400 kilometres. Jeep adds that new SUV will offer impressive ground clearance, breakover and approach angles for its segment, while delivering a modern and technologically advanced interior, with plenty of space for people and cargo.
The Jeep Avenger will debut during the Paris Motor Show press day, on October 17, with reservations opening for customers that same day. The all-new Jeep Avenger will arrive in showrooms in early 2023.
All-electric Jeep Wagoneer
The Wagoneer family is also set to grow with an all-new SUV. Code-named Wagoneer S, this fully electric vehicle is said to continue to expand the brand’s presence in the premium SUV segment by offering a unique, sleek, aerodynamic design and 4×4 capability as standard, with all-terrain management, advanced Jeep brand-focused technology and impressive performance credentials. This new, all-electric, global SUV will be offered exclusively as a BEV, targeting a range of 400 miles (644 kilometres) on a single charge, 600hp (447kW) and a 0-60 mph time of around 3.5 seconds.
The all-new Wagoneer BEV will also be displayed to the public next year and production will start in 2024 in North America. It will be sold in major markets around the world, including Europe.
