The time has finally come; Jeep is going to launch its first US-bound all-electric vehicle this fall under the guise of the Wagoneer S. As it stands, Jeep offers just one all-electric vehicle in its lineup, the Avenger, which launched in Europe in 2022. Accompanying this announcement is a short teaser video featuring an image of the car along with some very impressive stats for the vehicle, including 600 horsepower and a 0-60 time of “around” 3.5 seconds. Moreover, its aesthetic looks prime for taking on future entrants from Rivian and Land Rover.
Jeep Wagoneer S EV: Details
The Wagoneer S will come with Jeep’s 4xe-branded all-wheel drive as standard, along with the company’s all-terrain management system. Unfortunately, there’s yet to be a word on trims, motor tech, battery size, or pricing for the all-electric SUV as of right now, and we’ll have to wait until the release date gets closer before more information is revealed. The Jeep Wagoneer S will go on sale in the US before hitting other markets worldwide.
Jeep has stated that it designed the Wagoneer S with aerodynamic efficiency in mind. Just by looking at the teaser photo, this is very evident as the vehicle steps away from the brand’s traditional blocky structure and offers a more rounded vehicle. The lower bumper features two blade-like side inlets, which will also help improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics, though it does look cool. The company’s signature seven-slot grille features LEDs, which is a futuristic touch to the SUV, while the rear will likely feature a solid LED light bar across the back, reminiscent of the bar that stretches from both ends at the front.
The Jeep Wagoneer S will be the first of two electric Jeep SUVs planned to launch in 2024, with the smaller Recon expected to enter production sometime this year. The Recon will have a more reasonable price tag as it’s not part of Jeep’s luxury SUV segment.
