It’s only been a couple of years now since Jeep unveiled its very first plug-in hybrid vehicle. Back in 2020, the legendary auto brand showed off its Wrangler 4xe for the first time. It was capable of traveling up to 25 miles on electricity before its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine would step in and take over from there. At the time, Jeep also announced that it was planning to start producing more advanced electric vehicles (EVs) in the future, but it was unclear how soon they’d begin manufacturing them.
As it turns out, it didn’t take Jeep very long at all to get around to fulfilling its promise to produce more EVs. Their 2023 Jeep EV lineup features two vehicles that’ll be available in the U.S. and one that’ll be limited only to Europe. If you’re interested in buying a new Jeep sometime soon, you should learn about the Jeep EVs that are available and keep an eye on what else Jeep plans to release in the near future. Find out more about the 2023 Jeep EV lineup below.
Some people have worried about whether or not Jeep’s all-electric vehicles are still going to be every bit as rugged as they’ve always been in the past. Jeep is hoping that the Jeep Recon will put those concerns to bed. It’s going to have the same Jeep four-wheel-drive system that people have come to know and love over time. It’s also going to have a lot of the usual features found in Jeeps, such as the Selec-Terrain traction management system and e-locker axle technology.
The only difference between this Jeep and the gas-powered one is the battery pack that’s found inside it. Jeep has been tight-lipped on how big this battery pack will be, but the expectation is that it’s going to be able to provide a range of somewhere around 400 miles. That’s a much better range than you’ll find in lots of other electric SUVs, and it’s also more than enough to take the Jeep Recon out to wherever you’d like to take it without having to worry about it running out of juice.
Jeep Wagoneer S
While Jeep is specifically designing the Recon for those who’d like to push it to the lim while going out on adventures, the company’s taking a different approach with the Jeep Wagoneer S. It’s more of a luxury vehicle that also doubles as a high-performance SUV that can handle a lot of the same things that get thrown at other Jeeps.
Jeep also appears to be pushing to make the Wagoneer S one of the most capable electric SUVs on the road. It’s going to come with a motor that can produce a bump of more than 600 horsepower and a battery pack that’ll help it to achieve a range of 400 miles. The Wagoneer S is also going to be one of the most beautiful vehicles in Jeep’s entire 2023 lineup of EVs and gas-powered SUVs. It should set a good tone for the rest of the Jeep EVs that are to come.
Unfortunately, the Jeep Avenger isn’t going to be available in the U.S. at any point. As we alluded to earlier, Jeep will release one of its EVs exclusively in Europe, and the Avenger is it. Nevertheless, the Avenger will actually be the very first EV that Jeep releases that will not be a hybrid, so we feel it’s worth mentioning here.
The Jeep Avenger has a body that makes it even smaller than the Jeep Renegade, which is a big part of the reason why Jeep is holding off on releasing it in the U.S. in the first place. The company doesn’t feel like there’s enough of a market in this country for it. But it’s also going to be an all-electric SUV that’ll be able to travel up to 250 miles on a single charge. If nothing else, it should show what Jeep has in store for the North American market in the not-too-distant future.
Jeep Wrangler 4xe and Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe
If you can’t wait to get your hands on something from the 2023 Jeep EV lineup, there are a couple of Jeep 4xe vehicles that you can grab now. They aren’t fully electric but can provide you with plug-in hybrid power.
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe has an engine that can produce up to 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. It also has a battery that can take you up to 49 miles without having to use a drop of gas. The Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, meanwhile, has an engine in it that can produce up to 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Its battery allows you to travel up to 26 miles before it begins to rely on gas to move forward.
These models might not be right for those who want an all-electric Jeep. But they hold you over until Jeep starts manufacturing all-electric Wranglers and Grand Cherokees in the coming years.
