Jeep Unveils First Global All-Electric SUV, 2024 Wagoneer S

The Jeep brand has made a bold entrance into the electrified SUV market with the launch of its first global battery-electric vehicle (BEV), the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S. Initially set to debut in the United States and Canada in the second half of 2024, the Wagoneer S will later be available in markets around the world.

The 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S boasts impressive performance features, including 600 horsepower and more than 800 Nm of immediate torque, enabling a lightning-quick 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 3.4 seconds. With a range of over 300 miles on a single charge, this BEV delivers exceptional capability and endurance (data based on U.S. spec and cycle).

The vehicle also features the Jeep brand-exclusive Selec-Terrain traction management system, offering five distinct drive modes: Auto, Sport, Eco, Snow, and Sand, ensuring optimal performance in all weather and road conditions.

The Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition (U.S. only) will be the first to showcase elegant design elements such as an illuminated seven-slot grille, 20-inch wheels, and a standard dual-pane panoramic sunroof. Inside, the Wagoneer S offers a tech-integrated interior with 45 inches of usable screen space, including a segment-exclusive interactive front passenger screen. Premium heated and ventilated seats and a 19-speaker, 1,160-watt McIntosh audio system further enhance the driving experience.

Available in Jeep brand dealerships in the U.S. starting in the second half of 2024, the Wagoneer S represents the brand’s commitment to innovation, performance, and sustainability in the electric vehicle market.

“The launch of the all-electric Jeep Wagoneer S marks a new chapter in the storied history of the Jeep brand,” said Antonio Filosa, Jeep brand CEO. “Building upon nearly a century of innovation and design, this first global EV will introduce a whole new generation of owners to an experience that is distinctly Jeep and 100% electric in every way. With new energy in the Jeep vehicle lineup, ranging from EV to V-8, customers have never had more freedom to choose their own adventure.”

To make charging of this first global Jeep brand BEV quick and easy for customers, the Jeep Wagoneer S carries an efficient 400-volt, 100-kilowatt-hour battery pack that allows owners to charge the vehicle from 20% to 80% in 23 minutes (with DC fast charger).

Every Jeep Wagoneer S Launch Edition includes a 48-amp Level 2 home charger or public charging credits of equal value through Free2move Charge, Stellantis’ 360-degree charging ecosystem, making it easy for customers to always be charged by delivering seamless charging and energy management. Wagoneer S customers can access the Free2move Charge app to conveniently search for charging stations, activate the charging session and keep track of charging history (US only).

The foundation for the segment-leading characteristics of the 2024 Jeep Wagoneer S is the highly flexible, BEV-native STLA Large platform. Jeep brand designers and engineers flexed the STLA Large platform to adjust the length, width, suspension and powertrain configurations to tailor it specifically for the Jeep Wagoneer S to deliver instant torque and lightning-quick acceleration. 

Standard, all-electric, four-wheel drive delivers composed driving dynamics both on-road and in a variety of road conditions. Stellantis-designed electric drive modules (EDMs) independently power the front and rear wheels for instant torque response, while the Jeep brand-exclusive Selec-Terrain traction management system features five distinct driving modes: Auto, Sport, Eco, Snow, Sand.

The Jeep Wagoneer S’s 3-in-1 EDMs combine the electric motor, gearing and power electronics into a single, compact unit that is both powerful and efficient. The front EDM is equipped with wheel disconnects to reduce energy draw when cruising and to help optimize range.
