Jeep EV revealed

Images of the first-ever 100 per cent battery electric Jeep SUV have been revealed, which will be launched early in 2023.

The electric Jeep was announced during Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan presentation by Carlos Tavares, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Stellantis.

Dare Forward 2030 is a strategic plan for the coming decade in which Stellantis commits to becoming the industry champion in the fight against climate change, reaching carbon net zero emissions by 2038, with a 50% reduction by 2030. 

As part of that leadership, Stellantis is setting the course for 100% of sales in Europe and 50% of sales in the United States to be battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by the end of this decade. It plans to have more than 75 BEVs and reach global annual BEV sales of five million vehicles by 2030.

Tavares presented the Jeep brand’s first-ever fully electric SUV launching in early 2023 and a preview of the new Ram 1500 BEV pickup truck arriving in 2024. There will also be the Ram ProMaster BEV later in 2023 as part of a specific U.S. product offensive of more than 25 all-new BEVs.

Stellantis will also expand hydrogen fuel cell technology to large vans in 2024 with its first U.S. offering in 2025, then further expanding to heavy-duty trucks.

It also aims to reach one-third of global sales online in 2030 and to “launch a global digital marketplace offering customers a seamless journey through the entire Stellantis galaxy of products and services”.

Interestingly, Stellantis says there is a plan for an “asset-light business model in China to reduce fixed costs and limit exposure to geopolitical risk”.

Stellantis brands are Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Opel, Peugeot, Ram, Vauxhall, Free2move and Leasys.
