Jeep announced a detailed plan for the next generation of 4x4 electric vehicles. This strategy is part of a long-term plan to become the world leader in electrified SUVs. A few weeks ago, Dodge took a big step toward electrification when it showed off the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT. This innovative concept changes people's ideas about what a battery electric vehicle (BEV) can be. In November, Ram will show off the new features of the much-anticipated Ram Revolution EV. The brand promises to offer products that meet the real needs of the next generation of customers. Ram will go above and beyond what people want and what competitors provide, thanks to a complete set of technologies with more power, autonomy, productivity, and ease of use.
Chrysler also said that the brand will sell its first battery-electric vehicle (BEV) by 2025 and a variety of fully electric cars by 2028. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid was the first and is still the only plug-in hybrid in its class. It has a fully electric range of more than 48 km, more than 128 MPGe, and a total range of more than 800 km.
Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis, said, "Today's news about the Jeep brand is another example of how our American brands are changing to support our group's ambitious plans to reduce carbon emissions." "Across our 14 customer-favorite brands, we have a wide range of electrified products, and we've promised to release 28 new battery electric vehicles by 2024. We're sure that the next things we put out will make our customers happy and that they will continue to love us. They grew up with the big American brands."
On EV Day, Stellantis announced its plans to invest more than 30 billion euros in electrification and software development between 2021 and 2025. These investments will be made through joint ventures. The goal is to keep spending less on capital expenses and research and development as a share of revenue than the rest of the industry by 30%.
Carlos Tavares said, "It is our moral duty to ensure that our customers, employees, and planet have a future with sustainable mobility. Jeep's global SUV electrification strategy fits perfectly with the market's needs today, and we are ready to lead the way the world moves."
Based on the success of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, which is the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) in the United States, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, which was just released, the Jeep brand is working on a full line of 4x4 electric vehicles that will improve its legendary performance and help it reach more markets.
Today, the brand released the first pictures of two all-electric SUVs, the new Jeep Recon and Wagoneer S, which will be sold in North America and other parts of the world. At the same time, it has been confirmed that the new Jeep Avenger electric SUV will go on sale in Europe early next year after making its debut at the Paris Motor Show on October 17.
