2024 Jeep Wrangler EV specs: Electric motor performance
In 2021, Jeep unveiled the Magneto, which is a concept version of the Wrangler EV. The Magneto has a unique electric powertrain. It features a 285-hp electric motor, a six-speed manual transmission, and four battery packs. In all likelihood, the Wrangler EV will have a more traditional electric powertrain, with one battery pack, no transmission, and either one or two electric motors. Information about the driving range of the Wrangler EV is not yet known.
2024 Jeep Wrangler EV design: What does it look like?
For both the exterior and interior, the 2024 Jeep Wrangler EV will probably be very similar to the current-generation Wrangler, as well as the Magneto concept. The Magneto concept features a two-door body style, but we don’t yet know if a four-door version will be available for the Wrangler EV. For an open-air driving experience, the Wrangler EV will undoubtedly have a removable roof and doors.
Will the Jeep Wrangler EV be the first all-electric available?
While the Wrangler EV will be released in 2024, another all-electric Jeep model will be ready before then. Recently, Jeep unveiled teaser images of a yet-to-be-named Jeep EV, set for early 2023. Also, while not fully electric, Jeep already offers electrified models with the Wrangler 4xe and Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrids.
Additionally, Stellantis, the parent company of Jeep, has significant electrification plans across its automotive brand portfolio. The automaker will produce many new electric vehicles in the coming years. Later in 2023, Stellantis will make the Ram ProMaster van available and in 2024, the highly-anticipated Ram 1500 EV pickup truck. Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares claims that the Ram 1500 EV will beat other electric trucks for things such as driving range, charging, towing, and payload.
