Meunier said “the order doesn’t matter” when it comes to electrifying the Jeep portfolio, but there will be “a few BEVs before the Wrangler”.
Asked if the brand’s electrification push will take it into new segments, Meunier told Autocar: “Stay tuned. You’ll get some news in the next few months. Jeep is a global brand and we’re meant to cover the entire range of SUVs – true SUVs, not raised hatchbacks.
“We’re not completely expanded to 100% and we still have a few bullets in our pocket.”
The Grand Cherokee mates a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with a pair of electric motors for combined outputs of 375bhp and 470lb ft and it is equipped with a 17kWh battery, which gives a claimed 32 miles of EV range in urban areas.
