Stellantis’ New Electric Motorcycle Architecture Will Debut In 2026

Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, and FIAT Will Have Electric Motorcycles In Their Lineup By 2026...

Over the past several months, Stellantis has faced criticism from enthusiasts regarding the company’s direction toward electrification in the North American marketplace. A majority of the North American market has been leaning away from electric vehicles (EVs), with automakers racing to develop more plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). However, Stellantis has taken a different approach.

This morning, the automaker announced its intention to become the world’s largest mobility maker, allowing Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, and FIAT to enter the electric motorcycle market. Stellantis hopes that a portfolio of electric motorcycles will offer cheaper transportation for those in the North American marketplace and help persuade some of its petrol-headed customers to transition to EVs faster, aligning with its Dare Forward 2030 goals.

STLA Cycle Architecture. (MoparInsiders).

Each electric motorcycle will be based on the new STLA Cycle architecture. The STLA Cycle frame is constructed from lightweight aluminum and a swing arm, housing a 15.5 kWh Samsung battery pack. A single electric drive module (EDM) connected to a 90-degree single-speed gearbox will power the rear wheel via belt drive. Additionally, each bike will feature a liquid cooling system shared by the EDM and controller.

The new STLA Cycle architecture will be the first STLA vehicle architecture to be released with the new NACS SAE J3400 charging connector system.

According to Stellantis, the new STLA Cycle architecture supports Level 3 direct current (DC) fast charging and comes with a Level 1 charger that can be stored under the seat when not used. The range is expected to vary depending on the application and riding style of the rider; however, Stellantis claims riders can expect a range of 130 to 200 miles, again depending on the application.

Let’s look into what Stellantis has planned for each brand’s offerings beginning in 2025…

Jeep® Scrambler –

America’s off-road and adventure brand, Jeep®, will be offering an all-new, all-electric adventure motorcycle in Q3 2025. Built for both on- and off-road use, the new Scrambler will be the perfect bike to take you anywhere you can go on two wheels. Two variants of the Scrambler will be available: the entry-level Scrambler offers more of an on-road experience with sporty radial tires, while the Scrambler Willys model offers a taller windshield, a long-travel inverted front fork with adjustable compression/rebound damping, and polycarbonate hard side luggage.

Standard features will include…

  • LED Lighting
  • Adjustable Two-Mode Air Suspension
  • All-Digital 6-Inch TFT Mult-Function Instrumentation
  • Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
  • Under-The-Seat Rubber Dampers
  • Jeep® App Smartphone Access (Scheduling OTA Updates, Charging, and Maintenance Features)
  • OnX Off-Road (1-Year Subscription)
  • Multi-Tool Case Storage with Unique Jeep®-styled Multi-Tool
  • Choice Of Three Colors (Black, Sand, and Sarge (only on Willys)

The Scrambler will be tuned for 105 horsepower (78 kW) and 86 lb.-ft. of torque, with the entry model achieving 200 miles of range. It is expected that Jeep® will price the Scrambler around $25,000 for the entry model and $28,000 for the Willys model.

Dodge Tomahawk –

Yes, the Tomahawk name returns for Dodge’s latest motorcycle. While the 2003 concept had a Viper V-10 underneath it, this one is all-electric. Utilizing the STLA Cycle architecture as a “streetfighter” sport bike, the Tomahawk looks aggressive and promises to be the best performance option on the platform.

An all-digital infotainment system allows full suspension customization, ride modes (Street, Sport, Track, Rain, and ECO), and Dodge Performance Pages. With performance features like ABS, a Brembo® twin-piston single-disc front brake, and optional carbon-fiber wheels, the Tomahawk aims to bring Dodge performance to the two-wheeled arena.

The Tomahawk will produce 120 horsepower (88 kW) and 90 lb.-ft. of torque in a 540 lb. package. Dodge says the Tomahawk will have a 0 to 60 mph time of around 2.2 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. The Tomahawk should be able to charge from 20% to 80% in 40 minutes, thanks to Level 3 DC fast charging.

Standard features include…

  • 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 Infotainment System
    • Bluetooth
    • TomTom Navigation 
    • Dodge Performance Pages
    • Four Custom Dashboard Layouts (Street, Sport, Track, and ECO)
  • Adjustable Three-Mode Air-Suspension
  • Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
  • LED Lighting
  • Forged Aluminum Wheels (Standard), Carbon-Fiber Wheels (Optional)
  • Dodge Smartphone App (Charging, Custom Settings, and Scheduling OTA Updates)
  • Choice Of Five Exterior Colors (TorRed, White Knuckle, Sublime, B5 Blue, and Radical Yellow)

Dodge is counting on the Tomahawk as the most popular STLA Cycle vehicle in the North American market. Again, pricing hasn’t been released; however, we expect it to compete in the same category as motorcycles like the Harley Davidson Livewire, so around $34,000. The Tomahawk should start production in Q4 2025.

Chrysler New Yorker –

The New Yorker nameplate returns to the Chrysler brand again, adorning the brand’s all-new, all-electric touring motorcycle. Designed for long rides, the New Yorker features a large fairing and windshield that offer high weather and wind protection. A more relaxed, upright seating position allows for comfortable long-distance rides.

Standard features will include…

  • 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 Infotainment System
    • AM/FM Radio
    • SiriusXM Satellite Radio
    • Bluetooth
    • TomTom Navigation 
    • Wireless Android Auto / Apple CarPlay
  • 6-Speaker Alpine® GreenEdge Sound System
  • Heated Seat / Heated Passenger Seat / Heated Hand-Grips
  • Adjustable Windshield
  • Body-Color Side Touring Luggage
  • Body-Color Rear Touring Storage
  • Adjustable Three-Mode Air-Suspension
  • Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
  • Chrysler Smartphone App Access (OTA Updates, Charging, and Custom Settings)
  • LED Lighting
  • Choice Of Four Exterior Colors (Bright Silver, Black, Bright White, and Velvet Red)

The 917 lb. New Yorker will have a range of 130 miles and deliver 120 horsepower (88 kW) and 90 lb.-ft. of torque. Chrysler has yet to release pricing, but it is suspected that the entry-level New Yorker should cost around $38,000 once it hits showrooms in Q3 2025.

Fiat Libertà –

The last vehicle on the STLA Cycle architecture is the new Fiat Libertà (Freedom). The Libertà takes on the café racer genre of sport bikes. With its unique Euro-style, the Libertà promises to offer a unique setup for those who are looking for a small bike with decent speed, great handling, and perfect handling for quick rides over short distances.

Standard features on the Libertà include:

  • LED Lighting
  • Adjustable Two-Mode Air Suspension
  • All-Digital 6-Inch TFT Multifunction Instrumentation
  • Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
  • Choices Of Three Exterior Colors (Rosso, Velocità Verde, and Fulmine Bianco)
  • Aluminum Dashboard Cellphone Mount, With USB-A, USB-C Charging Port Access
  • FIAT Smartphone App (Charging and Scheduling OTA Updates)

The Libertà will produce 105 horsepower (78 kW) and 86 lb.-ft. of torque. With a range of 170 miles, the FIAT café racer looks to be the most well-balanced of the four STLA Cycle bikes. We expect Libertà to be priced right around the same price as the Scrambler, at $28,000. It is expected to start production in Q4 2025.

Stellantis says more details will come closer to the start of production. Production of the STLA Cycle vehicles should begin at the Toluca Assembly Plant in Mexico.

My dealer took a $2000.00 deposit from me on the Tomahawk motorcycle. He stated he was not familiar with the Tomahawk but once I showed him the Mopar Insiders post he took my deposit. Even my April 1st receipt did not wake me up.
Yes I feel for your spoof because you really have a strong idea here.
I told him to keep my deposit since this darn Think makes so much sense.
Fooled again!
