Jeep is the latest giant automaker to fully dive into the EV sector after Stellantis, its parent company, recently unveiled its first-ever fully-electric SUV which is scheduled to arrive in early 2023.
This historic update came in as part of Stellantis’ “Dare Forward 2030” plan, which aims to have 100% of sales in Europe and 50% of sales in the United States be for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by the end of the decade.
While the name or further details of the new electric SUV is yet to be announced, Jeep shared the image of the compact SUV model in a bright yellow color with black and silver accents.
Jeep appears serious about electrification and is now establishing its own charging stations at trailheads. Jeep also announced last summer that it will have an electric option in all of its segments by 2025, which means we can anticipate the arrival of an electric Wrangler and Cherokee in the nearest future.
Most of the upcoming electric Jeeps cars will utilize dedicated EV platforms from Stellantis. The platforms are the STLA Small, STLA Medium, STLA Large, and STLA Frame, and they will offer real-world driving range numbers starting at 300 miles up to 500 miles.
Stellantis revealed that it will have at least 75 electric nameplates on offer by 2030, including more than 25 in the U.S. which will include an electric Ram 1500 that is scheduled to arrive in 2024.
