Jeep announced on Thursday that it will be releasing four all-electric SUVS by 2025 as part of its “Freedom is Electric” campaign.
The move comes as Netherlands-based Stellantis, which produces Jeep, Fiat and other vehicles, has committed to 100% of its European sales to be electric vehicles and 50% of U.S. sales to be electric by 2030. The new vehicles will be fully released by 2025.
“Today’s news from Jeep brand is yet another example of how our American brands are transforming themselves to support our aggressive decarbonization plans,” said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares in a press release.
“Across our portfolio of 14 beloved brands we are offering exhilarating electrified products as we push to launch an additional 28 all-new battery electric vehicles through 2024. We’re confident that our upcoming launches will thrill our customers and keep them loving the great American brands they’ve grown up with,” Tavares said.
The new vehicles will include an all-electric Wrangler 4xe, the Jeep Recon, the Wagoneer S, and the Jeep Avenger.
The Recon is described as a similar vehicle to the Wrangler due to its off-road and open door-window capabilities. The Wagoneer S gives off more of a luxury feel and look, while the Jeep Avenger seems more like an everyday vehicle.
Jeep currently offers two plug-in hybrid models including the Wrangler 4xe and the Grand Cherokee 4xe.
“It is our ethical responsibility to ensure a sustainable future of mobility for our customers, our employees, and our planet,” Tavares said in the release.
“Jeep’s global SUV electrification offensive fits today’s market demands and we’re eager to lead the way the world moves,” he said.
