Expect the Jeep Recon electric SUV to launch in 2024
Revealing plans to electrify its whole portfolio, the Jeep Recon electric SUV was announced at the Jeep’s 4xe Day event. Although not a Wrangler, the upcoming Recon does acquire its traits with the large tires, suspension, and the iconic two-box shape of its brethren.
The design of the Jeep Recon electric SUV has a lower beltline and less prominent fenders, which are probably caused by the flat battery pack. According to Ralph Gilles, Stellantis Chief Design Officer, the Recon has the most greenhouse glass the marque has ever put in a car due to its proportions and the upright roof and windshield. The SUV also has a single touch power sliding roof and removable doors with exposed hinges, giving the inside an even more open vibe.
Jeep is still withholding a majority of details on the Recon’s electric engine until closer to the launch. We are still waiting on confirmation on the number of motors, the battery size, and the driving range on a single charge. That said, we are to expect a target range of 400 miles.
We do know that the Jeep Recon electric SUV will have 600 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 3.5 seconds, making it competitive in the performance SUV market. Additionally, we know that the Recon comes equipped with the most recent Uconnect infotainment system, which provides comprehensive trip itineraries.
As confirmed by the American marque, the Recon will also feature off-road tires, e-locker axles, underbody protection, trail-rated capability, and Jeep‘s Selec-Terrain traction management system. Production begins in 2024 and reservations will become available early 2023.
