Earlier this year, Stellantis’ “Dare Forward 2030” presentation included this Jeep. It was one of the few car to emerge during the press conference in which Carlos Tavares demonstrated the company’s future plans. It’s an electric one in which every Stellantis brand, including Jeep, will take part.
A new round of spy photos include that Jeep. They unveil the crossover sans concealment, showing the “baby Renegade.”
While we nickname it the “baby Renegade,” it doesn’t seem to resemble it. The crossover gets distinct style, ditching the Renegade’s boxiness in favour of smoother rear-end appearance closer to the Compass. However, all of the classic Jeep elements are there, beginning with the distinctive grille, which has been restyled. Because the new Jeep is an electric car, the grille has seven closed-off rings rather than seven slots.
It will be the world’s first pure-electric Jeep. Although no official confirmation has been made, the next Jeep is expected to ride on PSA Group’s e-CMP platform. The new Jeep will pave the way for comparable models from Alfa Romeo and Fiat. Stellantis will manufacture the three in its Tychy, Poland, factory.
This is a real revolution for Jeep and will help the brand expand into more market segments with a brand-new powertrain. Evs will supplant classic gas-powered cars throughout Jeep’s range, including the Wrangler. (50gram)
Of course, the photographs make it difficult to assess the exact dimensions of the new Jeep SUV. It will be around 4.10 to 4.15 metres (161.4 to 163.3 inches) long. This is smaller than the Renegade, which is 4.23 metres (166.6 inches) long, and will help prevent one from cannibalising the sales of the other.
The new Jeep should be reasonably priced. Jeep may sell the next model with either a pure gasoline engine or a hybrid arrangement. However, this is only speculation, and we won’t know for sure until the actual presentation.
The electric powertrain in the Jeep should be the same as that in the Peugeot 2008, DS 3 Crossback, and Opel Mokka. This is the 100-kilowatt (136-horsepower) electric motor with a 50-kilowatt-hour battery pack, which provides for a range of more than 300 kilometres (482 miles).
The next Jeep might hit the market as early as the first half of 2023 or as late as late 2022. The company may announce it before the end of the year, paving the way for Jeep to introduce two additional battery-powered vehicles by 2025.
