Jeep revealed the Wrangler Magneto 3.0 electric SUV concept at its annual Easter Jeep Safari event in Moab, Utah. The Wrangler Magneto 3.0 concept car is equipped with an updated electric motor, which is expected to output a peak power of 650 horsepower. Jeep has been rolling out the Wrangler Magneto concept for a long time as part of its electrification strategy. The latest version showcases what the battery-powered Wrangler is capable of.
Jeep’s latest concept is an indication of what we can expect from the automaker’s future. Future EVs from the automaker will include an all-electric off-road Wrangler Magneto designed to tackle the most challenging terrain. The concept is based on a two-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with an all-electric motor connected to a six-speed manual gearbox, initially tuned to deliver 370 Nm of torque and 285 hp.

Part of its own Stellantis brand, like its sister car brands Dodge and Ram, Jeep is working to have 50 percent of its total sales in pure electric vehicles by 2030 under the automaker’s Dare Forward 2030 strategy. Wrangler Magneto will be a key part of the plan. The SUV specialist brand will launch three all-electric vehicles in North America and Europe by 2025 as part of the company’s commitment to zero-emissions mobility.
The first of the three electric SUVs will be the Jeep Avenger compact SUV with a range of about 400 kilometers on a single charge. This will be accompanied by a taller off-road stance. The other two EVs ready for the North American market are the Jeep Recon and the Wagoneer S. The Jeep Wagoneer S will serve as a premium electric SUV with a range of up to 643 kilometers.
The automaker, known for its rugged SUVs with legendary 4×4 capabilities, is transitioning to 4xe technology, which Jeep says is more powerful and has instant torque, allowing SUVs to tackle tough rock climbs or hill climbs with greater ease. .
