Jeep will launch its first fully electric SUV early in 2023. Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares announced the news during the automaker’s Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan presentation.

Jeep has been slower to embrace electrification as compared to many of its rivals. The automaker has released plug-in hybrid versions of its Wrangler and Grand Cherokee SUVs. Meanwhile, the plans of an off-roading version of the Grand Cherokee, the Trailhawk, which also comes with a hybrid motor are also in the line.

Electric SUV -The Look

It features signature Jeep traits like a seven-section grille and aggressive, bulky look. The SUV’s rear door handles are placed up by the window, rather than in the conventional spot.

The brand’s signature seven-slot grille, will be the same feature. However, the grille is closed since there’s no gasoline engine under the hood.

The yet-to-be-named SUV seems to be on the smaller side of the Jeep Compass or Renegade but we won’t know its size for sure until the company releases more information.

Details like range, horsepower, and price are also a question mark at this point. Stellantis did not specify where the EV will be sold when it launches early next year, and a spokesperson did not immediately return a request for comment.

The Jeep Lineup 

Serious efforts to electrify the Jeep lineup started last year with the Wrangler 4xe, a plug-in hybrid variant of the iconic Wrangler offering approximately 35 kilometres of EV range thanks to a 17.3kWh battery.

The next-generation Grand Cherokee is also getting the 4xe treatment in North America, while the smaller Renegade and Compass are already available as plug-in hybrids over in Europe.
