Electric Jeep®, Electric Ram Truck Coming Soon

2023 Jeep® BEV & 2024 Ram 1500 BEV | Toronto, ON

Everyone is going electric! Many of the top automakers either already have EVs in their lineups or have some in the works. Jeep® and Ram have been working to create two new electric vehicles, and we’ve got the details.

2023 Jeep® BEV

The first model that’s expected to arrive is the first-ever fully electric Jeep® SUV. This unnamed vehicle sports signature Jeep® stylings with a new version of a seven-slot grille and a body shape similar to the Compass and Cherokee models. The new Jeep® BEV (battery-electric vehicle) is slated to arrive early next year and is the brand’s next step to achieve its vision of Zero Emission Freedom.

2024 Ram 1500 BEV

Ram plans on debuting its own fully electric vehicle in 2024: the Ram 1500 BEV. While few images have been released except for a shadowy teaser, the electrifying new truck is said to “outperform all competitors on attributes customers care most about: range, towing, payload, and charge time,” according to internal communications.

Are you excited about the new electric Jeep® and electric Ram truck? Our team at Downtown CDJR is looking forward to these two brands showcasing their power and capability while offering efficiency — and helping the Earth along the way!
