Meet Jeep’s first global EV

Jeep took the sheets off its first global electric SUV, the Wagoneer S, late last month as it looks toward a new chapter.

The Jeep Wagoneer S features a range of over 300 miles, a luxurious, tech-oriented interior, and fast charging capabilities. Powered by a 100 kWh battery, Jeep’s electric SUV can charge from 20% to 80% in 23 minutes.

Jeep’s Wagoneer S is “Distinctively a Jeep and 100% electric in every way,” according to Jeep’s CEO Antonio Filosa.

You will notice several signature design upgrades for the electric era, including a reimagined seven-slot closed grille.

Although it’s built on Stellantis’ STLA Large platform, which is expected to underpin the electric Dodge Charger, Jeep designers modified it specifically for the Wagoneer S.

On the inside, Jeep packed its latest software and connectivity tech. The Wagoneer S Launch Edition includes a massive “best-in-class” display with 45″ of space. This includes a 10.25″ interactive passenger screen.
