When the Jeep Wagoneer S appears in dealerships in the fall of 2024, it will be the first of eight battery-electric vehicle (BEV) launches on the STLA-Large platform planned by the Stellantis family of brands from 2024 to 2026. Stellantis will also use the Wagoneer S’s BEV-native platform with all-electric vehicles from Dodge, Chrysler, Alfa Romeo, and Maserati.

So far, Jeep has teased with photos and performance nuggets and claims that the Wagoneer S interior “features premium technology seamlessly integrated with meticulously crafted artisan details.” Jeep also hasn’t released starting prices for the Wagoneer  S, but judging from the generous portion of superlatives in the Stellantis news release, we expect prices to reach or exceed the $80,000 threshold for SUV EV tax credits.

Why the Jeep Wagoneer S launch matters

Any new BEV model gets headlines. As the first all-electric Jeep, the Wagoneer S enjoys special status since it’s a halo model for the Jeep brand. The Wagoneer S is also the first large platform EV from Stellantis, the global automotive family of brands.

When the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4xe plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) debuted, it soon became the most popular Wrangler variant and was the best-selling PHEV in the U.S. in 2023. Therefore, Jeep has evidence that brand loyalists are open to the new technology. If the Wagoneer S sells well in the highly competitive large SUV class, that will be a good sign for other Stellantis brands using the same platform. The high-end models can also help fund the expensive development of smaller and lower-cost mass-market BEVs.

The Stellantis STLA-Large platform has remarkable capabilities.

Stellantis set BEV goals of 100% passenger car sales in Europe and 50% passenger cars and light-duty trucks (including SUVs) in the U.S. by 2030. The company also aims to be carbon net zero by 2038. Stellantis is developing four global platforms for BEVs to support these aggressive goals. An international platform refers to a vehicle base or foundation for various vehicle types, styles, and relative sizes. BEV platforms also have battery capacity, performance, and range capabilities.

According to Stellantis, the STLA-Large BEV platform will support up to 118 kWh of energy in 400-volt and 800-volt architectures. The platform will charge up to 4.5 kWh per minute and will be suitable for vehicles that can accelerate from zero-to-62 mph in about 2 seconds.

Wagoneer S capabilities

Given the STLA-Large platform’s potential, Jeep’s claim that the Wagoneer S will go from zero to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds doesn’t even begin to stress the capabilities. Jeep also stated that the Wagoneer S will have 600 horsepower and Jeep’s off-road capabilities.

The Wagoneer S look and feel

Jeep characterizes the Wagoneer S as a premium all-electric SUV. The vehicle exterior in the teaser photos is more aerodynamic than the blocky and square-shaped Jeep.

There are few specific details about the Wagoneer S’s interior features besides the statement that it will have a tailored driver control center with mindful materials and design-focused features. A Stellantis news release on the Wagoneer S design specifies that the new BEV will have a unique Jeep brand-exclusive Selec-Terrain toggle and dynamic, color-selectable ambient lighting. A dual-pane panoramic sunroof will be standard, and a 19-speaker McIntosh audio system will be available.

As the launch date approaches, we look forward to learning much more about the Wagoneer S.

In either case, there are many excellent choices among new hybrid vehicles as some brands cease making gas-only vehicles.

To select the eight 2024 hybrid cars below, we considered several factors. We studied manufacturer history and success with hybrids, buyer satisfaction with earlier models, quality and value among comparable vehicles, and even the hybrids' fun factors.

2024 Formula E all-electric car racing schedule: Your complete guide
Don't miss a single race
FIA Formula E racing shows that world the excitement of sustainable automotive competition.

If you've been enjoying the Formula E Unplugged Season 3 streaming content, it's time to prepare for the 2024 Formula E racing season. Season 10 of Formula E racing starts Saturday, January 13, with the 2024 Mexico City E-Prix on January 13.

Why Formula E racing matters
Formula E racecars hit top speeds of more than 200 miles per hour, but they're not as fast as F1 cars. The 2024 F1 racing schedule includes more races in more cities than Formula E, and F1 owns the bragging rights as the most elite motorsport. However, Formula E racing, with its all-electric race cars, is the only motorsport (so far) that doesn't consume fossil fuels. Formula E races are much quieter without the roar of high-torque internal combustion engines.

BMW sets all-time U.S. sales record on back of EV lineup, MINI shows huge gains
BMW, MINI had a huge sales year in 2023
BMW i7 M70 xDrive

BMW has just smashed its annual sales record in North America, thanks in part to the manufacturer’s successful range of EVs and the appeal of the Mini brand. The Bavarian car builder announced it had sold a total of 362,244 to American customers in 2023 -- a 9% increase on its 2022 figures. The company also saw a strong final quarter of 2023, with sales seeing a 6% spike in the last few months of the year.

During that time, EV sales roughly tripled, demonstrating that the gamble BMW took when it decided to push hard on electric is paying off. 2023 saw the launch of the electric 5 Series, along with the i7. Both vehicles also received an “M” package with boosted performance and a few special features. The i4 sedan and iX SUV complete the company’s current North American electric lineup, though more EVs are expected to emerge in the near future. This includes the first electric version of the BMW M5 -- which could be announced in the summer of 2024, with customers getting behind the wheel sometime in late 2024 or early 2025. All in all, BMW sold 45,417 EVs to Americans in 2023, which the company says is around 12.5% of its total sales output. Given this success is happening while the process of electrifying the BMW lineup is far from complete -- the company’s chances of hitting its 50% EV sales target are looking a lot more realistic.
