Jeep showed off two electric SUVs this week that it plans to launch in North America in the next two years, one “inspired by the Wrangler” and the other representing an expansion of the upscale Wagoneer line.
Jeep is targeting a range of 400 miles on a charge, 600 horsepower and a 0-to-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds for the Wagoneer S, according to the company. Similar details for the Recon weren’t provided.

However, the Recon’s off-road credentials were highlighted, with Jeep’s “Selec-Terrain traction management system” as well as under-body protection, tow hooks and aggressive off-road tires as part of the package.
The vehicles were shown to journalists during an online preview Wednesday to highlight the latest on the brand’s electrification strategy, which calls for the introduction of four electric SUVs in North America and Europe by the end of 2025.

The other two electric SUVs planned for North America were not shown. Journalists were told to stay tuned for details. Jeep plans for 50% of its U.S. vehicle sales and 100% of its sales in Europe to be all-electric by 2030, the release said.
