Jeep has announced some new all-electric and hybrid electric models, and you’ll probably want one.

I know, the first thing you want to know is, “Can I get one now?” Well, not yet. These vehicles will be available in 2025. The announcement touted four all-electric models but only two of them are going to be available worldwide. The other two are for Europe only.

Jeep is building on their current 4xe models. To refresh your memory, they already have the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid and the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid. The Wrangler 4xe happens to be the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the U.S., so it makes sense that Jeep is moving forward with this electrification strategy.

The Jeep 4xe Strategy Includes all its Models – Even the Grand Wagoneer!

Jim Morrison, head of Jeep brand North America emphasized some long-term goals of leading the way in becoming a fully electric brand. “With the continuous expansion of the 4xe technology across our entire portfolio, we are redefining freedom and adventure in a way that only the Jeep brand can,”

He continued, “By the end of 2025, our full lineup will be electrified, including four all-electric vehicles competing in the heart of the marketplace.”

The Grand Wagoneer is projected to get 500 miles on a single charge/tank of gas. That’s very exciting for people who want to go electric but are unsure or unable to go all-electric.

I loved what Christian Meunier (Jeep brand CEO) said about their vision. It embraces the understanding that so many people do use their Jeeps for all kinds of outdoor recreating.“Driven by the success of our electrified 4xe portfolio in North America and Europe, we are designing and developing the most capable and sustainable Jeep SUVs to date, on our path to becoming the leading zero-emission SUV brand in the world,” he said.

“This is a forward-thinking strategy to help ensure millions of Jeep fans around the world continue to have a planet to explore, embrace and protect. Electrification is great for our brand, making it even more capable, exciting, sustainable and fun.” So what does this vision mean for North America?

North America will get the Jeep Recon and the Jeep Wagoneer S

The Jeep Recon is going to be a fully capable off-roading electric SUV. It will have a removable top and doors. It will be trail-rated and will have Jeep’s traction management system, under body protection, big off-roading tires, and tow hooks. The Recon will also have UConnect equipped with off-roading maps and guides. Of course, Jeep says the Recon will be able to cross the Rubicon Trail and still have “enough range to get to town to charge up.”

Are you excited about the Recon? If you are, be aware that reservations for one will go live in early 2023.

The Wagoneer S is not to be Confused with the Grand Wagoneer

The Wagoneer S is a mid-sized SUV with the code name of Wagoneer. It’s sleeker and smaller than the Grand Wagoneer, so think of it as a new Wagoneer model. It’s expected to be a premium, high-range electric SUV, with a range of 400 miles.

Customers will be able to reserve the Wagoneer S in 2023.

It was fun to see the electrification strategy of the Jeep brand! Excuse me while I check the website every day to reserve my Recon.
