Jeep’s iconic Wrangler is set to enter the electric-vehicle era, sharing its body, interior, and off-road prowess with the Magneto concept. The new 2024 Jeep Wrangler EV will reportedly hit the market sometime next year, probably in the fall. Anyway, we’re expecting the Wrangler EV to look and feel very much like the current Wrangler.
In case you didn’t know, Jeep is already selling a plug-in hybrid version of the Wrangler, which is called the 4xe. So, the only thing missing in the lineup is a fully-electric version, which isn’t far away from being produced. Without further ado, let’s check out what new will bring Jeep to its electric SUV.
2024 Jeep Wrangler EV Design
The 2024 Jeep Wrangler EV will look modern and unique. In general, we’re expecting this SUV to keep the same styling as the Magneto concept. This SUV looks instantly recognizable thanks to its traditional seven-slog grille and rounded headlights. Basically, depending on trim level, the design of this SUV will vary quite a bit.
The Magneto is the most expensive model, featuring 20-inch wheels and all-terrain tires. Thanks to that, this model, compared to others in Jeep’s lineup, offers better climbing over rocks and ruts on the trail.
The new 2024 Jeep Wrangler EV is on the way, and it should introduce a more comfortable cabin compared to the regular variant. However, it is still unclear if the Wrangler EV will be available with two or four-door body styles. Anyway, we anticipate it will offer the same basic interior space and dashboard layout as we saw on the current Wrangler.
We’re certain that it will keep the same removable doors and roof for an open-air driving experience. The manufacturer will probably separate this model from the rest, adding more quality materials and likely much better technology.
Will There Be a Fully Electric 2024 Jeep Wrangler?
As we said, the new 2024 Jeep Wrangler EV will probably use the same setup as the Magneto concept. This unique model uses a 285-hp electric motor paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The total amount of combined power should be 625 horses. This model also featured four chassis-mounted battery packs.
Generally, we think something like that could make its way to the Wrangler EV. Jeep already sells a plug-in hybrid variant called the 4xe, which delivers 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It can also travel around 50 miles in all-electric only mode on one charge.
2024 Jeep Wrangler EV Price, Release Date
According to the latest report, the new 2024 Jeep Wrangler EV will be available in a few different trims. The first one Sports starts at $50,000, Freedom at $55,000, Sahara around $60,000, Rubicon is $65,000, while Magneto is around $70,000.
Jeep hasn’t said anything about pricing for the new Wrangler EV, but we’re expecting starting price of around $50,000, and even higher. Unfortunately, we don’t know the exact rerelease date of the new electric model but many reports suggest it will arrive before the fall of 2023.
