Jeep wants to reinforce its EV lineup. With that in mind, the organization says it will offer a “zero-emission, fully electric” 4xe model in each category of its SUV lineup by 2025. The automaker declared its electrification plan as part of its parent organization’s EV Day 2021 event, a similar showcase where we learned Dodge is dealing with an all-electric muscle vehicle.
By mid-decade, the organization expects electric vehicles will represent 70% of the entirety of its sales. “4xe is good for Jeep. It’s good for the Jeep community, and, more importantly, it’s good for the planet,” Jeep CEO Christian Meunier said during the event.
Jeep likewise offered a look at the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe, denoting the first time when we’ve seen the new plug-in hybrid without camouflage. It’s required to feature a similar gasoline-electric powertrain as the 2021 Wrangler 4xe that permits that SUV to output a consolidated 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Jeep will share more insights regarding the whole Grand Cherokee lineup at the New York International Auto Show in late August.
