Jeep Plans for the Future with New Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

Jeep is aggressively joining the ranks of the automakers making the transition to alternative fuel sources. On March 22nd, the brand announced its most exciting update yet: the all-electric Wrangler SUV. This news comes on the heels of the new Jeep 4xe launch, which brings plug-in hybrid technology to some of the brand's most popular SUVs.

What We Know About the Upcoming All-Electric Jeep Wrangler

Every year, Jeep brand SUV lovers descend on Moab, Utah, for the annual Easter Jeep Safari. This year, Jeep is expected to preview an exciting concept vehicle: an all-electric Jeep Wrangler. Although this model doesn't have an official name, the concept model is called the "Magneto". Attendees at the event will get the first glimpse at the brand's foray into the world of electric vehicles.

The electric Wrangler will do away with the gas engine completely, replacing it with one or more battery-operated motors. The specific design is still a secret, but it's safe to expect innovative engineering that preserves the SUV's legendary off-road capabilities. Teaser images show a single motor that's packaged with a transfer case and a body that's similar to existing Wranglers. The major design differences appear to be an updated grille and blue accents.

The exact release date for the Wrangler EV in the Quakertown area is unknown—to stay up-to-date, be sure to keep in touch with our team at Bergey's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

With an all-electric range of 21 miles and a total driving range of 370 miles, the Wrangler 4xe brings efficiency and reduced emissions into the Jeep lineup.
