New Jeep Recon and Wagoneer S to expand brand’s all-electric lineup by 2025

Jeep car‘S pure electricity The strategy is well underway, with the upcoming Recon set to go along with Avengers and Wagoneer S. While Jeep hasn’t said whether the Recon or Wagoneer S will come to the UK (which the Avenger wil), there are plans to bring both to Europe by 2025.

Recon is considered the rival of the new Hummer EV and Bollinger B1, and Jeep says it took design cues from the Wrangler without hesitation, giving the new car an upright stance, a bluff front end, wide sidewalls and large bumpers. Like the Wrangler, the Recon’s doors are designed to remove and the roof is retractable to provide occupants with an extra dose of the great outdoors.

The Wagoneer S, however, will be positioned as a premium SUV, to rival BMW iX, Audi e-tron and Mercedes EQS SUV. Jeep claims the Wagoneer S will offer 400-mile range, with over 592bhp from its battery pack, propelling the car from 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds.

Jeep wants to stress that the Recon won’t be a replacement for the Wrangler, despite its similar dimensions. To differentiate the Recon from the Wrangler, Jeep will offer the Recon using only pure electric power. As with every Jeep model, it will also be available with all-wheel drive. There is no word on the battery size or the platform Recon will use, although it will be on a bespoke EV architecture.

To give the Recon real off-road capability, it will come with Jeep’s Selec-Terrain traction management system, underbody protection, tow hooks and aggressive off-road tires as standard.

We haven’t seen the inside of the upcoming Recon yet, but we’d expect a cabin that resembles that of the rough and ready Wrangler rather than the premium-focused Wagoneer S.

Jeep says production of the Recon and Wagoneer S will begin in 2024 and they will hit the European market in 2025. A fourth all-electric Jeep SUV will arrive in 2025, but the American company is still have not disclosed any details.
