Jeep has unveiled what will become the company’s first pure-electric model, due next year. The as-yet unnamed model has been presented with few details other than a couple of teaser images and some educated predictions.
Announced as part of a strategy presentation by parent firm Stellantis CEO Carlos Taveres, the electric Jeep is confirmed to be made available for leasing customers in 2023, and makes up the group’s plans to only offer full-EV models in Europe by 2026.
The new model looks like it will sit somewhere between the Renegade compact SUV and Compass mid-sized SUV. Stellantis already has a platform and powertrain for that size vehicle in its group, and has rolled out electric versions of the Vauxhall Mokka-e, Peugeot e-2008, and Citroen e-C4 on it.
As such, it’s fair to assume that the new Jeep will be available with a 50 kWh battery, allowing for a range of around 200 miles on a charge, and power from a 100 kW electric motor.
Currently, Jeep offers a couple of plug-in hybrid models , but the new EV will be the company’s first mass-produced pure-electric model.
