There is no denying that the future of the automotive industry is electric power, especially in countries like the USA, where the charging infrastructure is already widespread. Therefore, it makes sense that even traditionally old-school brands like Jeep are going electric. The brand has dominated the off-road SUV segment, a part of the market that isn’t naturally inclined to going the EV route. However, the hybrid Wrangler 4xe has been quite successful, and the benefits of having an all-electric Jeep vehicle could be manifold.

What to Consider When Buying an All-Electric Jeep

FAQs about Jeep EVs
Does Jeep sell an electric car?
The American automaker has announced its intention to electrify its entire range by 2025. However, the only model we really know anything about is the Recon, which will be an off-road-biased SUV. It will be joined later by the Wagoneer S, a mid-size crossover, but we have yet to hear anything about that new electric Jeep aside from its name. Check back soon to find out how much horsepower these cars will make or what mileage you can expect from them.
What is the price of an electric Jeep?
As no models have yet made their way to the market, we have no official figures to quote. However, we are expecting the cost of the Recon to fall somewhere in the area of $50,000 to $60,000.
Will Jeep be abandoning internal combustion engines in favor of EVs?
Many automotive brands have laid out plans to phase out their gas-powered models while bringing in new EVs or battery-electric variants of current models. Jeep seems to be following suit, aiming for a portfolio of all-electric vehicles by 2025 and for 50% of all American sales to be for electric vehicles. The ICE lives on for a little while longer.
