Jeep revealed on Thursday its plan to release four new EV models in the US and Europe by 2025 as the company seeks to “become the leading electrified SUV brand in the world.” Additionally, Jeep has set a goal of 50% of US sales and 100% of EU sales being battery electrics (BEVs) by 2030.
The new model lineup builds on the success of the plug-in hybrid Wrangler 4xe and the recently announced Grand Cherokee 4xe.
They will 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, as well as an Avenger EV, which will be available in Europe “early next year,” according to Jeep PR.
The Recon will be unveiled to the public next year, with production set to begin in 2024. Reservations for that model will be available in early 2023.
The Wagoneer will be a completely new take on a classic Jeep model, with the company aiming for “a range of 400 miles on a single charge, 600 hp, and a 0-60 mph time of around 3.5 seconds.”
It will also be available for reservations early next year. The compact Avenger SUV will complement the Wagoneer’s midsize bulk, though it won’t be available in the United States at first.
Instead, it will be marketed in Europe and Asia, with a target range of 400 kilometers. It will make its public debut in October and should be on dealer show floors by the second quarter of 2023.
