Fully-Electric Jeep Wrangler To Be Revealed At The Easter Jeep Safari In Moab

A fully-electric Jeep Wrangler will re-define the genre and will likely be pricey


  • This will be FCA’s first fully-electric vehicle.

  • It will join the 4xe PHEV Wrangler and Gladiator.

  • The concept will debut in late March.


Electrification is a fact of life for all automakers, even FCA. Up until recently, they seemed to want to buck the trend towards electrification with countless Hellcat-powered vehicles but even Dodge and Jeep know that the ICE is on the way out. Following a number of 4xe PHEV vehicles, Jeep will take the EV lead with an all-electric Wrangler.

There’s little to go on for the moment, other than knowing that Jeep will debut the electric Wrangler during the Easter Jeep Safari held in Moab, Utah, between March 28th and April 3rd. Jeep has created a section on its website called “The Road Ahead” where the off-road brand goes through a number of its upcoming plans such as the 2022 Grand Wagoneer, the Grand Cherokee 4xe, solar charging stations, and the electric Wrangler.

For all intents and purposes, there’s a strong chance that this first electric Wrangler will be an expensive proposition. Considering that the Wrangler 4xe is about $50k in the US and $57k in Canada, the EV will likely be priced in the $60,000 to $70,000 in both countries respectively. If not more.

Even so, this Wrangler could become the most capable of all time. The cutaway shows a combination of what looks to be an electric motor, batteries, and a conventional transmission/transfer case layout. This should please hardcore off-roading enthusiasts.
