Update: ‘Jeep Grand Wagoneer EV Price & Release date’ and ‘Jeep Grand Wagoneer sales’ sections revised.
While Jeep has confirmed plug-in hybrid power for the Grand Wagoneer (Grand Wagoneer 4xe), and a fully-electric Wagoneer (Wagoneer S) which are expected by 2025, one of the company’s secretive projects is the all-electric Grand Wagoneer.
It was at the Stellantis EV Day 2021 on July 8, 2021, where the company confirmed that it would have EVs in every SUV segment. TopElectricSUV.com had learned exclusive details about the future Jeep Grand Wagoneer model (large SUV segment), laid out later in the story.
Electric variant was confirmed in 2022
According to a report Motor Trend published on August 24, 2022, Christian Meunier, Jeep’s former CEO, confirmed during the Stellantis EV Day 2021 that the Grand Wagoneer will get the EV treatment.
Rewinding, at the Jeep APAC roundtable on July 13, 2021, TopElectricSUV asked Meunier whether the Wagoneer EV would become the most expensive Jeep and how the price would be justified. Meunier referred to the product as the Grand Wagoneer EV in his response:
“The Grand Wagoneer is obviously not a very affordable product, it’s a very premium product, very top-of-the-art, state-of-the-art, and the BEV, the electrified version..the BEV version is probably not gonna be an affordable product,” Meunier replied. He justified the premium pricing of the Grand Wagoneer EV citing the driver’s experience that awaits in this vehicle:
That thing (Jeep Grand Wagoneer EV) drives in complete silence, at a very very strong acceleration. This is magic. This is something that nobody has ever seen before!Christian Meunier, former CEO, Jeep, replying to TopElectricSUV on July 13, 2021
The Jeep Grand Wagoneer EV may not have its own look. Given that Grand Wagoneer customers prefer the elegant and comparatively old-school styling, the design team may not apply the EV ‘starter kit’ like a smooth nose cone, blue highlights, and closed (aero-optimized) wheels. Even if the upper grille is shut, it should feature the familiar cut-outs to preserve the signature seven-slot effect. Expect the charging port to reside on the left front fender, which would allow convenient nose-in parking when plugged in.
The Jeep Grand Wagoneer EV may look close to the gas-powered model, but it will ride on the STLA Frame platform, an evolution of Stellantis’ current body-on-frame architecture, which will debut in the Ram 1500 REV. Stellantis has said that STLA Frame EVs will deliver a range of up to 500 miles. For a full-size model like the Grand Wagoneer EV, though, the range figure could probably be around 300 miles, with the SUV offering customers features like V2L, an all-weather frunk, and a dual-motor powertrain.
Think about what you’ve seen, the Grand Wagoneer, you evolve it in a few years and you put big battery packs.Christian Meunier, former CEO, Jeep, at the APAC media roundtable on July 13, 2021
