In a much less shocking announcement in the auto industry in recent years, Jeep on Thursday unveiled its plan to launch four new EV models in the US and Europe by 2025 as the company aims to become “the leading brand for electrified SUVs in the world.” Additionally, Jeep has set a target for battery electric (BEV) vehicles to account for 50 percent of US sales and 100 percent of EU sales by 2030.
The new lineup builds on the success of the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid and the recently announced Grand Cherokee 4xe. These include a new Recon and Wagoneer, both of which were first revealed during Thursday’s livestream and will be available in both North American and European markets, and an Avenger EV, which Jeep PR says is coming to Europe “early next year.” .
The Recon will make its public debut next year, with production expected to begin in 2024. Reservations for this model are possible in early 2023. The Wagoneer will be an all-new take on a rugged Jeep model, with the company reportedly “targeting a range of 400 miles on a single charge, 600 horsepower, and 0-100 mph acceleration in about 3.5 seconds.” Too it will be open for reservations early next year. The Wagoneer’s mid-size bulk is complemented by the compact Avenger SUV, although it won’t arrive in the US to launch. Instead, it will be marketed to Europe and Asia, offering a targeted range of 400 km. It will be presented to the public in October and should appear in dealer showrooms by the second quarter of 2023.
