Jeep’s 4xe Day announces the Jeep Wagoneer S electric SUV
The Jeep Wagoneer S electric SUV, which will be the first electric Jeep to carry the Wagoneer moniker, is expected to be a high-end SUV with a very distinct appearance from the other models announced at Jeep 4xe Day. With a design that’s significantly more aerodynamic than anything Jeep has ever made before, the American marque has raised the standards of the premium electric SUV.
The design of the Jeep Wagoneer S electric SUV screams “electric” on the front end, which features LED in between each of the seven bars on the grille. With big windows and a glass top to let in lots of light, the Wagoneer S delivers excellent vision and natural daylight inside the cabin. The hovering wing right above the liftgate is one of the Wagoneer S’s most intriguing visual features, creating the appearance that the rear wing is hovering over the car.
According to Ralph Giles, the Wagoneer S’s designer, the S in the name stands for speed, striking, and sexy. Comparing the Wagoneer S to other Jeep vehicles, there is undoubtedly a sexier aspect. The Wagoneer S appears to have a lot to offer in terms of performance as well.
Waiting to get hold of some impressive performance numbers, the Wagoneer S is claimed to produce some strong figures. We are to expect that Jeep targets around 600 horsepower, which will enable the vehicle to reach 60 mph in around 3.5 seconds. Jeep also hopes to achieve a 400-mile driving range on only a single charge.
Jeep hasn’t explicitly said how the Wagoneer S’s drivetrain is built or given details on the design of the EV platform, but it’ll most likely come standard with two electric motors running 4×4. To set it apart from other models under the Stellantis branch, it will contain the brand’s technologies in addition to Jeep’s all-terrain management system.
More details will come when the Jeep Wagoneer S electric SUV goes into production. Even Jeep isn’t entirely certain on its name, which could still change in the future. The new EV’s first models will hit US dealerships in 2024, with later releases in other markets including Europe.
