In 2024, Jeep is set to introduce its first global battery-electric vehicle (BEV), the Jeep Wagoneer S.
This vehicle marks the brand's entry into the electric vehicle market, with a scheduled release in the U.S. in fall (September - December) 2024, followed by availability in other "key markets" worldwide.
Although currently Australia is not confirmed for the Wagoneer S, it is being strongly considered.
The Jeep Wagoneer S will be offered solely as a BEV and features the brand's standard 4xe capability, which includes all-terrain management and Jeep-focused technology.
It's worth noting that the Jeep Avenger BEV, coming soon to Australia, is available in some key markets but is based on the Peugeot e-2008 platform and is not available globally.
The vehicle is reported to have 600 horsepower and a 0-60 mph acceleration time of around 3.5 seconds. Its design focuses on aerodynamic efficiency, highlighted by a redesigned LED-lit, seven-slot Jeep brand grille, which is unique to this model.
This new model is part of Jeep’s broader global electrification initiative, aligning with the brand's shift towards electric vehicles. The introduction of the Jeep Wagoneer S contributes to the company's goal of achieving Zero Emission Freedom.
This move is also in line with Stellantis, Jeep's parent company, and its ambition to become a carbon net zero corporation by 2038, as detailed in the Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan.
