Today Stellantis announced plans to electrify its entire Jeep line by 2025. At the event they also said they expect 50% of their sales in the United States to be from electric vehicles and 100% in Europe by 2030.
In addition, the brand will introduce four 100% electric vehicles in North America and Europe by 2025.
Jeep’s master plan fully supports the net zero carbon emission targets set by Stellantis during the long-term strategic plan Dare Forward 2030.
The above was not all, the North American automaker also presented the first images of two fully electric SUVs, the new Jeep Recon and a Wagoneer brand new, codenamed Wagoneer S, to be marketed in North America and other regions of the world and also confirmed that the new all-electric Jeep Avenger will launch in Europe early next year.
Jeep Recon BEV
One of the first all-new electric SUVs to launch in North America is the Jeep Recon, which is aimed at those customers who are enthusiastic about extreme adventures in silence, with a resistant and fully electric vehicle. This vehicle was designed from the ground up, both to be a 100% 4×4 Jeep and 100% zero emissions.
Among the main features of the Jeep Recon, we have the following:
- True Trail-rated capability with Jeep Selec-Terrain traction management system, e-locker axle technology, underbody protection, tow hooks and off-road tires

Jeep Wagoneer BEV
This SUV will be shown to the global public in 2023 and its production will begin in 2024 in North America. Reservations will begin in early 2023 for US customers and will then be marketed in major markets around the world, including Europe.
As for the Wagoneer, for now the code name is Wagoneer S. This SUV will expand the brand’s presence in the premium SUV market and, according to Jeep, by offering “a unique, elegant aerodynamic design and standard 4×4 capability, with off-road management systems, advanced technology exclusive to the Jeep brand and its impressive performance«.
The new Wagoneer will offer a range of around 640 km (400 miles) on a single charge, 600 hp and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (96.5 km/h) in around 3.5 seconds.
Jeep also announced that its grille will be illuminated with LED lights and will be characterized by both aerodynamic efficiency, as well as the iconic Wagoneer vertical side view.
Like the Jeep Recon, the new all-electric Wagoneer will be introduced to the public in 2023 with production beginning in 2024 in North America. Customers in the United States will be able to pre-order it in early 2023 and also like the Recon, the new Wagoneer will be sold in major markets around the world, including Europe.
A big brand change in Europe was offering only electrified SUVs in countries like Germany and France. Furthermore, by the end of this year, the entire Jeep SUV series will be electrified in almost all European markets.
According to Jeep, the plan they revealed this morning at their event «builds on this 4xe drive, developing a portfolio of capable, all-electric vehicles designed and sized for Europe. The brand will introduce four zero emission vehicles in Europe by 2025, with offerings in the main volume segments. As a result of this avalanche of products, all Jeep vehicles for sale in the region will be 100% electric by 2030«.
The first model of this plan is the new Jeep Avengera fully electric compact SUV, which was introduced earlier this year as part of the Stellantis Dare Forward strategic plan.
This compact SUV will be offered in Europe and other markets such as Japan and South Korea. They also announced that it will be manufactured at the high-efficiency plant in Tychy, Poland.
The Avenger will have a range of 400 kilometers and will show impressive levels in its segment with respect to ground clearance and breakover and entry angles. In addition, she will present a modern interior with advanced technology and a large cargo area.
