Jeep’s future looks electrifying, as outlined in a recent Stellantis investor presentation. The brand’s CEO, Antonio Filosa, unveiled plans extending through 2027, emphasizing a significant shift towards electrification across their lineup. A standout announcement was the upcoming next-generation Jeep Renegade, set to debut with a fully-electric variant priced under $25,000. Filosa did not clarify whether this price includes potential federal tax credits, indicating that such incentives could play a crucial role upon its launch in the coming years.

In addition to the electrified Renegade, Jeep plans to introduce a new generation of the Compass by 2027. Another notable addition will be a midsize SUV, unveiled alongside the Wagoneer S, though its specific name remains undisclosed, likely succeeding the Cherokee. Refreshes are also planned for several models including the Wrangler, Gladiator, Grand Cherokee, Wagoneer, and Grand Wagoneer.

By 2027, Jeep aims to offer a comprehensive lineup featuring five plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) variants, a range-extended model, and six fully electric vehicles (EVs). These EVs will be introduced progressively, with two slated for unveiling in 2025, utilizing Stellantis’ STLA Large and Medium platforms designed for various vehicle segments.

The next-generation Renegade, positioned as a B-segment vehicle with multiple powertrain options, is expected to utilize the Smart Car platform. This platform supports hybrid engines and electric powertrains, potentially offering up to 249 miles of range, though actual range may vary based on testing standards.

Overall, Jeep’s electrification strategy marks a significant evolution in their product offerings, with initial launches including the Wagoneer S later this year and the Recon slated for next year. The brand’s commitment to expanding their electric vehicle portfolio underscores a proactive approach towards meeting future market demands and regulatory requirements.
