Jeeps parent company, Stellantis, recently unveiled the timeline for the battery-electric vehicles it plans to launch over the next few years across its different brands. The Wrangler Magneto 2.0 is just one of the many hybrids and EV models that Jeep and its parent Stellantis intend to launch over the next few years. That means that we are probably going to see an electric Wrangler sometime in the not-too-distant future, which Jeep has already teased with its concept, the Wrangler Magneto, unveiled last year. From what we saw of the concept, it is a plug-in electric concept car designed to showcase what you can expect with a plug-in hybrid Jeep Wrangler 4XE.
Jeep has said Jeep is working on an electric future for Wrangler, so Wrangler Magneto 2.0 may preview some elements of this future model. The American carmaker added further that there would be an all-terrain (likely an electric Wrangler) model, as well as a family-friendly SUV, coming on the roads sometime in 2024. Jeeps CEO further added that by 2025, the brand will offer an electric car in all segments. The American carmaker confirmed the availability of Jeeps first-ever electric Jeeps by the beginning of 2023.
The Jeep BEV will be powered by the American automakers small STLA platform; a modernized version of Peugeots EMP1 platform. The first-ever Jeep EV will be built in Europe, along with Stellantis other branded models using a shared platform. The first fully electric Jeep will slot in between Renegade and Compass in Stellantis concentrated lineup, the latest in a series of zero-emissions vehicles to form the basis for an ambitious new program announced by the CEO of Stellantis, who laid out the companys long-term strategy during an event in Amsterdam. Jeep has been faster than most Stellantis brands in adopting electrification, at least according to Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares.
After Jeeps first fully electric model, the next EV that Stellantis releases is Ram ProMaster Van. Jeeps parent company, Stellantis, has not released pricing details for Jeeps 2024 EV, nor has it said which trims will be available. Its owners, however, promised there would be an electric option for all SUVs in the Jeep brand by 2025. Jeep plans to have five electric models by 2025, with a new all-electric Jeep at entry level being Jeeps first, the Stellantis Group plans to have 75 new EVs introduced before 2030, and wants to sell five million EVs each year by that time.
Jeep may unveil this Jeep by the end of the year, setting the stage for Jeep to launch another two battery-electric models before 2025. Its next EV SUV, 2023, will be Jeeps first all-battery EV. Jeep remains one of the only automakers not yet to offer an EV on its lineup, but that is about to change in early 2023, when the U.S.-based brand launches its first EV SUV. The 2024 Jeep EV is the working title for the brands first fully electric off-roader, which may come as soon as next year with a 2024 model.
Jeep is set to reveal the Wrangler Magneto 2.0, along with a handful of other concepts, at Easter Jeep Safari, the off-roading enthusiasts annual rally in Moab, Utah. There is no word yet on what is under the hood of its next electric SUV, though it is obviously going to share parts with the rest of the companys Stellantis family; which includes brands like Peugeot, Citroen, Opel, Alfa Romeo, and Fiat. Its upcoming electric SUV would fit into the overall plans that Stellantis, a multinational conglomerate formed last year when Fiat Chrysler merged with Frances PSA Group, had for the electric ranges in most of the Stellantis brands.
In addition to the Jeep EV crossover, the Stellantis e-CMP platform would also be the basis for the Alfa Romeo and Fiats next electric SUV/crossovers, which will be manufactured at Stellantis production facilities in Tychy, Poland. While Jeep has not confirmed anything about a Jeep electric crossover, it is expected to be powered by the Stellantis e-CMP platform, which was developed exclusively for pure-electric vehicles by the group. The first-ever Jeep EV will probably share the same platform with the next models of other brands under the Stellantis umbrella, such as Alfa Romeos Brennero, or the next-generation Peugeot e-2008. The Jeep crossover is expected to sit in a similar position as other brands under the Stellantis umbrella, such as Jeeps new E-Series E-Series.
Jeep is expected to begin production on a smaller version in the fourth quarter of this year in Stellantis plant in Tychy, Poland. Jeep also will not be alone, with Ram set to launch the ProMaster Electric van at the beginning of 2023, followed by 1500 pickups the next year (shown at center).
Among other vehicles, such as an all-electric Ram 1500 Jeep plans to introduce to the market in 2024, Jeeps parent company, Stellantis, has also previewed a second Jeep EV, which would come ahead of an expected electric Wrangler for 2024. Carlos Tavares, CEO of Jeeps parent company, Stellantis, unveiled images of a new fully electric Jeep SUV.
