Jeep’s current eco-friendly vehicles are plug-in hybrids, but the American brand is now ready to take the next step towards electrification.

On Thursday, during Stellantis’ EV Day 2021, the automaker pledged to offer a “zero-emission, fully-electric” 4xe model in every single segment of its SUV lineup by 2025.

By the same year, Jeep also expects that electric vehicles will make up 70% of the total sales. 

Unfortunately, the company didn’t disclose any further details, but it did give away some special features, including autonomous off-road technology and drone-pairing. 

And if that’s still left wanting more, here’s an extra that might cheer you up: the brand gave the first official look at the 2022 Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid, which is rumored to have the same gasoline-electric powertrain as the 2021 Wrangler 4xe.

Well, it certainly feels like Jeep provided us with more questions than answers, but let’s keep the good thing here: it’s going electric!
