First came the Jeep on Sunday teased the new electric SUV concept following the rollout of its “The Road Ahead” website, immediately after the brand debuted its latest .. Next? A completely battery-electric Wrangler concept.
There’s a lot of information on the website, but one panel in particular explicitly names the “100% battery-powered Wrangler BEV” as an upcoming concept car. Specifically, Jeep plans to include the concept in its annual release of concepts for itsevent. We can’t confirm much of anything other than the fact it will sport batteries and at least one electric motor to funnel power to all four wheels, but it does have a nifty looking light bar. It looks like the bar runs from the end of the typical fascia, through the round headlights and behind the grille.
Peering under the skin in another photo seems to show a couple of batteries and one electric motor up front. It also looks like there’s a pretty standard issue transmission present and a transfer case. It’ll be interesting to see how Jeep presents this totally electric off-roader, especially if it still incorporates some traditional engineering. The Easter Moab Safari concepts are always pretty wild, so this could be a pretty slick concept.
