'4xe is the new 4x4.'

Jeep celebrates its 80th anniversary with a bold zero-emission vision to offer a zero-emission, fully electric Jeep 4xe in every SUV segment by 2025. It means probably that several Jeep models will get at least an electric version by 2025. We are eager to hear when the first BEV models will be introduced.

Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand Chief Executive Officer said:

"We are fully committed towards a vision of zero emission future, and by 2025 we will be offering a zero-emission fully electric Jeep 4xe in every SUV segment”

The presentation of the Jeep Magneto EV Concept was not accidental as the future of Jeep is also electrifying.

Currently, the company is busy with the expansion of its plug-in hybrid lineup - 4xe, which consists of a few models - Jeep Renegade 4xe, Jeep Compass 4xe, and Jeep Wrangler 4xe. Plus there was the 2019 Jeep Commander PHEV in China.

The first two - Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe - are produced and sold in Europe, while the Wrangler 4xe is produced in the U.S. and sold also in Europe. The next step will be the introduction of the all-new, fifth generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee with the plug-in hybrid Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe version.

The official unveiling is scheduled for the 2021 New York International Auto Show in August.

"Next in our exciting global product pipeline is the introduction of the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee, which will be equipped, for the first time, with plug-in-hybrid 4xe technology.”.

The plug-in hybrid Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept shown in 2020 probably means the Jeep Grand Wagoneer 4xe will follow as well.
