Jeep just announced its comprehensive plan for its next generation of fully electric 4xe vehicles as part of a sustainable transformation to become the leading electrified SUV brand in the world. The plan, which premiered on the brand’s YouTube channel, calls for the introduction of four all-electric SUVs in North America and Europe by the end of 2025. This news was highlighted by the upcoming, all-electric 2024 Jeep Recon EJ SUV. And it certainly looks the part, if we do say.
All-Electric 2024 Jeep Recon 4xe: Details
Based on the STLA Large architecture, the Jeep Recon was developed for those who love to explore extreme adventures in near silence with a rugged, fully-electric package. It’s not a replacement for the Wrangler but will be like a little sibling to the iconic Jeep. The Jeep Recon is designed from the ground up to be a purely zero emission Jeep 4×4 electric SUV. And it will come with:
- Jeep Selec-Terrain traction management system, e-locker axle technology, under-body protection, tow hooks, and aggressive off-road tires
- A one-touch powertop, removable doors, and drop-down glass, just like the JL Wrangler
- The latest generation Uconnect system, including detailed travel guides of the most notable off-road trails.
A photo released from Jeep indicates that the top off-road trim will be named the “Moab” based on the badge visible on the rear swing gate. The all-electric 2024 Jeep Recon can cross the mighty Rubicon Trail, which is one of the most challenging off-road trails in the U.S. Though the range hasn’t yet been revealed, it’ll supposedly still have enough juice after the trail to drive back to town and recharge.
The global SUV will be displayed to the public next year, and production will start in 2024 in North America. Customers in the U.S. will be able to make a reservation for the new Jeep Recon BEV SUV in early 2023.
