We’ve been tracking bits and pieces of information about the all-electric Jeep Wagoneer S since early this year, including a video released earlier this week. On May 30, the Stellantis Jeep division formally introduced the brand’s first battery electric vehicle (BEV), the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S SUV.

We now know the first shipments will be the Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition, equipped with a full array of handling, appearance, and safety features.

Jeep SUVs set the standard for off-road prowess in the U.S., and the Wrangler 4xe and Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) have been extremely successful. Jeep recently confirmed a Gladiator 4xe variant will launch in 2025. Because Jeep’s parent organization, Stellantis, has been adamant in its commitment to electrifying its brands and models, the first all-electric Jeep will measure how well the company delivers.  It’s not surprising that Jeep picked one of its most premium models for its first BEV, but the proof will be how the Wagoneer S performs once production begins.

The Wagoneer S Launch Edition will come prepared for the worst driving conditions drivers encounter — as expected with all Jeep models. Jeep’s Selec-Terrain traction management system will have Auto, Sport, Snow, and Sand modes for the SUV’s four-wheel drive.

The Wagoneer S will also have 45 inches of display space, including the driver information screen, a central stack infotainment display, and a dedicated passenger screen. The Launch Edition SUV will have heated and ventilated front and rear seats and a high-end 19-speaker, 1,200-watt McIntosh audio system.

When not covered with mud from off-road frolicking, the Launch Edition will look city-sharp with an illuminated grille, 20-inch wheels, and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, all accented with gleaming black detailing.

The Wagoneer S powertrain will pump out 600 horsepower with 717 lb-ft of torque with a maximum range of more than 300 miles per charge. You won’t see that much range if you push it hard constantly, but Jeep says the BEV will accelerate from zero-to-60 mph in 3.4 seconds.

Charging the Wagoneer S’s 400-volt, 100-kWh battery pack from 20 to 80% will take 23 minutes when connected to a DC fast charger. To help with charging, the Launch Edition will also include a 48-amp Level 2 home charger or an unspecified amount of charging credits via Free2Move Charge,

The first deliveries of the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S will start in the fall of this year. The U.S. starting price is $71,995, including destination and handling fees.

Audi is fast becoming a poster child for EV success and advancement. In addition to enjoying record sales from its e-tron EVs this year, Audi recently introduced the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), an electrical architecture for future EVs. Audi developed PPE jointly with Porsche, another Volkswagen Group brand. Advances in battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are necessary for widespread electrification of the cars, trucks, and SUVs we drive, and Audi isn't sitting back waiting for Tesla or BYD to find new solutions.
Why the Premium Platform Electric system matters

The Audi/Porsche PPE matters because, with the advanced platform, automakers can develop technologically advanced vehicles to address two of the most important buyer concerns about EVs: range and charging time. With PPE, engineers can also design drive systems that are more efficient, smaller, lighter, and improved heat management.

VW reveals 2025 ID. Buzz trim levels and features, no launch date or prices yet
Break out your tie-dyed t-shirts, the VW ID. Buzz is coming
2025 VW ID. Buzz and vintage VW Bus parked in front of rolling hills.

Start waxing your surfboard. VW revealed three U.S. introductory trim levels for the long-awaited 2025 VW ID. Buzz, the all-electric descendent of the original VW Microbus.  We have to wait for specifics such as initial order date, pricing, range, and towing capacity, but VW released the details on the three trim levels for the U.S. launch.
Why the U.S. version of the VW ID. Buzz matters

The 1960s was an interesting time in the U.S., with a counterculture movement that emerged from the post-WWII Baby Boomer generation and challenged conventional expectations. The VW Microbus was an icon of that tie-dyed period of U.S. history. When VW confirmed that the ID. Buzz concept vehicle would go into production, the company noted that U.S. buyers' enthusiasm for a new 'VW bus' was the driving factor.
