Jeep is launching the electric Wagoneer S, boasting 600HP, to compete with BMW iX, marking a significant step in the brand’s electric transition.
Jeep’s Wagoneer S, a 600HP electric SUV, aims to rival BMW iX and Range Rover Sport EV.
Initially launching in the US in 2024, Europe will see its release in 2025.
The vehicle is part of Jeep’s move towards an all-electric European lineup by 2030.
Jeep is gearing up to introduce its electric contender, the Wagoneer S, designed to compete head-to-head with the likes of the BMW iX or future Range Rover Sport EV in Europe. This 600HP electric SUV represents a significant milestone in Jeep’s journey towards electrification.
Primarily targeting US consumers, the premium SUV, stretching 5 meters in length, is also poised to challenge vehicles like the Polestar 3 or Lucid Gravity. The anticipated US launch is set for 2024, with a European rollout, including limited quantities for both left and right-hand-drive markets like the UK, expected in 2025.
The Wagoneer S, promising an impressive range of approximately 373 miles on a single charge, is set to be the flagship of Jeep’s expanded lineup in the UK. This lineup will feature seven vehicles, including the currently available Jeep Avenger and the soon-to-arrive Jeep Recon in 2025. Furthermore, Jeep’s commitment to electric transition is evident as they plan to offer an all-electric range in Europe by 2030, a vision echoed by CEO Christian Meunier.
A noteworthy aspect of the Wagoneer S is its foundation on the new STLA Large architecture developed by its parent company Stellantis. This platform will be shared with the much-anticipated Recon, hinting at the vehicle’s robust underpinnings.
Jeep ensures that the Wagoneer S will not only be powerful, with its 600HP allowing it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, but also luxurious. However, specifics about the technology enabling this performance remain under wraps.
