Jeep unveils its Wagoneer S: the manufacturer’s first 100% electric car designed for the American and European markets. A competitor to the Range Rover Velar.
Alongside the Jeep Avenger, the American manufacturer has just made the Jeep Wagoneer S official. On the agenda: a large family SUV that should represent the best of the American luxury car industry.
Jeep Wagoneer S: UP TO 650 KM OF AUTONOMY, FROM 2024
Few details have been released, but the Jeep Wagoneer S is expected to offer a range of about 650 km. The automaker targets 600 horsepower, with just 3.5 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h). It will be sold starting in 2024 in the U.S., but it is also planned to be marketed in Europe and other parts of the world.
In terms of design, the Jeep Wagoneer S is different from the current Wagoneer range. The design differs from the existing version, particularly for energy efficiency reasons. This would allow Jeep to announce this high autonomy. Too bad we don’t know the battery’s size so we can have an idea about the consumption.
If the front of the vehicle takes up the brand’s signature, with the pretty grille equipped with an exclusive light signature, the rear of the vehicle is quite new at Jeep. It could even be easily mistaken for a Range Rover Velar!
AN XXL BATTERY?
It will be based on the STLA Large platform from Stellaris. This platform can accommodate batteries with a maximum capacity of 118 kWh, which is huge. For comparison, the Mercedes-Benz EQS has a 107 kWh battery range of about 725 km.

THE JEEP GRAND WAGONEER IN AMBUSH
The interior of the Jeep Wagoneer S has not been revealed, so we will have to wait a little longer to find out more. Jeep took the opportunity to announce the Jeep Grand Wagoneer in a plug-in hybrid version that looks very similar to the Grand Wagoneer Concept presented in 2019.
