Jeep to End all Non-Electrified ICE Vehicle Sales in Europe This Year

Jeep is accelerating its electrification plans in Europe

  • Italy will be the exception.

  • The new Grand Cherokee will only be available with PHEV technology.

  • Jeep will have an EV in all major SUV segments by 2025.

Starting this year, Jeep will no longer sell any of its models without electrification. As such, pure-combustion engine models will be phased out in all of Europe with the exception of Italy. There, it is the best-selling low-emissions vehicle brand.

Jeep to get its First All-Electric Model in 2023

In the US, the 4xe PHEV version of the iconic Jeep Wrangler accounts for 25% of all sales. Jeep’s 4xe technology will lead the SUV company into the future as it will be the only powertrain offered with the all-new Grand Cherokee in nearly all European markets.

Jeep’s CEO, Christian Meunier told reporters: “We are accelerating electrification, amplifying 4×4 capability and the spirit of freedom with electrification. It’s not only about being more green. It’s about emphasising and improving the capabilities of our Jeeps – making them more fun, exciting, sustainable and being able to drive off road quietly.”

As for future electric Jeeps, according to Autocar, details are very slim. The only concrete piece of info Meunier gave was that there will be a few EVs on offer before the all-electric Wrangler arrives.
