The Jeep® brand stunned its enthusiasts base this morning, with a sneak peek at the upcoming all-electric Jeep Recon (EJ).
Developed for those who love to explore extreme adventures in near silence with a rugged, fully-electric package. Based on the STLA Large architecture, the Recon is not a replacement for the Wrangler (JL) but will be more like a “baby brother” to the iconic Jeep offering.
Unlike the Wrangler, the Jeep Recon is being designed from the ground up to be a 100% zero-emission off-roader. The Recon will be offered exclusively as a battery-electric vehicle (BEV). Sorry internal combustion engine (ICE) fans.
The all-new off-roader will feature…
- True “Trail-Rated” Capability
- Jeep Selec-Terrain Traction Management System
- e-Locker Axle Technology
- Underbody Protection
- Tow Hooks
- Aggressive Off-Road Tires
- Jeep Open-Air Freedom (One-Touch Powertop, Removable Doors, & Glass)
- Lastest Generation of Uconnect (Detailed Travel Guides Of Notable Off-Road Trails)
“The all-new, all-electric Jeep Recon has the capability to cross the mighty Rubicon Trail, one of the most challenging off-road trails in the U.S., and reach the end of the trail with enough range to drive back to town and recharge,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep CEO.
Judging by the photo released from Jeep, the top off-road trim will be named the “Moab” as noted by the badge on the rear swing gate.
The new Jeep Recon will be displayed to the public next year and production will start in 2024 in North America. Customers in the U.S. will be able to make a reservation for the Recon in early 2023. Jeep plans on selling the Recon in most major markets around the world, including Europe.
