Overview

Jeep has been talking about an electrified future, and it's going make that talk a reality with an EV version of the brand's iconic Wrangler off-roader. Previewed by a concept car at the 2021 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, the Wrangler EV is closer to reality than ever before. That concept vehicle, called Magneto, featured four chassis-mounted battery packs positioned for optimum weight distribution. In a video released by Jeep's parent company, Stellantis, a Wrangler EV is shown to have a biometric recognition system, which uses physical cues or data, —things like facial recognition or fingerprints—to confirm the identity of the owner and allow the vehicle to be started and driven. The company indicates the electric Wrangler may also have a feature that enables it to recharge other EVs. Jeep already sells a plug-in hybrid version of the Wrangler called the 4xe, so it seems likely that a fully-electric version isn't far off.

What's New for 2024?

Although we expect the Wrangler EV to look and feel very much like the current JL-series Wrangler, it will serve as the kick off to a new generation of electric Jeeps.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Sport
$50,000 (est)
Freedom
$55,000 (est)
Sahara
$60,000 (est)
Rubicon
$65,000 (est)
Magneto
$70,000 (est)

    Jeep hasn't said anything about pricing for the new Wrangler EV, but we can tell you now that it won't be cheap. Expect a starting price of around $50,000, and even higher prices on more desirable and more capable models.

    EV Motor, Power, and Performance

    The Magneto concept sported a unique EV powertrain which paired a 285-hp electric motor with a six-speed manual transmission and four battery packs. Something like that could make its way to production, but we're expecting a more traditional EV powertrain with one or more electric motors, no transmission, and a single battery pack.

    Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

    It's unclear if the Wrangler EV will be offered in both two- and four-door body styles, but we anticipate it will offer the same basic interior space and dashboard layout of the current Wrangler. We're certain that the Wrangler EV will also have removable doors and roof for an open-air driving experience.
