2021 marks the legendary off-roading brand’s 80th anniversary.
These Jeeps will also carry the 4xe moniker.
4xe is Jeep’s electrified brand and it’s about to grow significantly. In the recent past, Stellantis’ Jeep introduced PHEV versions of the Renegade and Compass however they are not currently offered in North America. More recently, we got to sample the Wrangler 4xe and it’s certainly interesting.
Going forward, Jeep will maintain the introduction of more 4xe PHEV models including one for the all-new Grand Cherokee. As well, as shared last March, a 4xe version of the Wagoneer is also expected. Plug-ins are nice and all but it’s full-EVs that truly matter.
Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand Chief Executive Officer said, as reported by insideevs: “We are fully committed towards a vision of zero-emission future, and by 2025 we will be offering a zero-emission fully electric Jeep 4xe in every SUV segment”
We can safely assume that every model, from the Renegade to the Grand Wagoneer will thus get a fully electric version. On Stellantis’ EV day, the automaker did reveal that they will offer four distinct EV platforms including one that will be frame-based, perfect for large SUVs and trucks.
We wonder which one will come first. We’re thinking the Grand Cherokee is the most likely.
