The Wagoneer family will expand with a new midsize version. Code-named Wagoneer S, this all-electric vehicle will be considered a premium 4x4 SUV. It will also be released only as a BEV.

Jeep says that both the Recon and the Wagoneer S will be global vehicles. They will be shown publicly next year. They will both be built in the U.S., but Jeep isn’t saying where. Jeep will start taking reservations for both vehicles early next year.

Jeep is promising that 50% of sales in the U.S. and 100% of sales in Europe will be battery-electric vehicles by 2030.

Jeep also announced that a small BEV called the Avenger will only be sold in Europe. Originally, it was announced that the compact SUV vehicle would be Jeep’s first BEV in North America, but the company changed the plan to sell the tiny SUV here in 2023. Now, the Avenger will debut at the Paris Motor Show on October 17. It will be sold in Europe, Japan and South Korea.

Jeep’s New Motto as it Charges into the Future

“Today we shared only a glimpse of our new portfolio of all-electric SUVs, providing tangible evidence of what is to come in the next 24 months and why we say that 4xe is the new 4x4,” said Meunier. “This powerful combination of Jeep design, legendary 4x4 capability and electrification will reshape the SUV market, allowing more customers in more countries and in more segments to join us on our path toward Zero Emission Freedom.”
