Design and Looks: What We Know About
We have simply seen the exterior design of the upcoming EV Jeep. More details are still yet to come to you. However, we can simply let you know what we know about the vehicle.
The new crossover simply suggests it is likely to resemble a scaled-down version of the Jeep Compass. As you look at its front design, you can see its seven-slot signature grille is closed and pulls out a small ‘e’ badge detail.
Its headlight on the edge of either side features a hilltop like DRL, with two main lights underneath. You can see a sporty hard-top stance on the back of the electric SUV. It looks cool and sleek with its wide posture and its firmly designed headlights. Its large wheel arches are beautifully filled with big wheels.
The Jeep’s X-signature is also featured with a confided advent.
Talking about its roof design, its split-tone roof design gives the EV crossover an adventure, sporty look. Its rear door handles can be seen to be placed on the C-pillars instead of the doors which gives it a 3-door appearance.
The C-pillars are also likely to improve the drag-co-efficiency feature of the compact SUV. Overall, we can conclude that the crossover features an all sleek, sporty, and conventional outlook.
What is Yet to Be Revealed?
We already discussed what we know about this new upcoming Jeep’s EV. This part discusses what is yet to be revealed about the vehicle.
The badges on the car include the standard Jeep brand logo like all its model but we can also see a small ‘e’ badge at the front and back of the crossover. The production model name is not revealed or suggested what it could be named yet.
Back in August 2021, Stellantis announced its protocol to be a truly industrial champion in environmental mitigation by becoming fully carbon-neutral by 2038. For this, the company proclaimed its plan to deliver 20 brand new plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) along with battery electric vehicles (BEV) covering its Jeep and Dodge brands between 2021 and the middle of 2023.
The model is expected to follow the same platform under the Stellantis upcoming models’ including the new-generation Peugeot e-2008 or the Alfa Romeo Brennero.
The Jeep BEV applies the Stellantis’ STLA Small platform design that is used on cars like the Peugeot e-208, Opel Corsa e, and the Citroen DS3 Crossback. But none of these came with a dual-motor option.
While all the Jeep brand SUV cars models came with all-wheel-drive, the platform that the Jeep is likely to use may not be able to serve the feature. Still, the feature is likely to be modified to a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system as it would be peculiar for an electric Jeep to have a single front motor-only.
