Jeep wants to boost its EV lineup. To that end, the company says that by 2025, it will offer a “fully electric” model without nuclear emissions in all categories of its SUV line. The carmaker announced its electrification plan as part of EV’s 2021 parent company, the same showcase where we learned The Dodge is working on a fully electric muscle car.
By the middle of the decade, the company predicts that electric vehicles will account for 70 percent of all sales. “4xe is good for Jeep. It’s good for the Jeep community and, more importantly, it’s good for the planet, ”Jeep CEO Christian Meunier said during the event.
Jeep also offered a look at the Grand Cherokee 4xe in 2022, the first time we’ve seen a new plug-in hybrid without camouflage. It is expected to have the same petrol-electric powertrain as the 2021 Wrangler 4xe that allows this SUV to produce a combined 375 horsepower and 470 pounds of torque rate. Jeep will share more details about the entire Grand Cherokee lineup at the New York International Auto Show in late August.
