Jeep Wrangler Magneto 3.0 electric SUV concept breaks, pumps out 650 hp
Jeep has uncovered the Wrangler Magneto 3.0 electric SUV concept at the annual Easter Jeep Safari event in Moab, Utah. The Wrangler Magneto 3.0 concept comes with an updated electric motor, promising to pup out 650 hp of peak power. Jeep has been tasing the Wrangler Magneto concept for quite some time as part of its electrification strategy. The latest version shows what the battery-electric powered Wrangler can be capable of.
Jeep’s latest concept indicates what we can expect from the automaker in the future. The future EVs from the automaker would include a fully electric off-road Wrangler Magneto designed to tackle the most challenging terrains. The concept is based on a two-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with a fully electric motor hooked up to a six-speed manual transmission initially tuned to deliver 370 Nm of torque and 285 hp of power.

As part of Stellantis-owned brands, like its sister automotive brands Dodge and Ram, Jeep is striving for 50 per cent of its total sales by 2030 to be fully electric under the automobile company's Dare Forward 2030 strategy. The Wrangler Magneto would be a key part of that plan. The SUV specialist brand will launch three fully electric cars by 2025 in North America and Europe as part of the company's commitment to zero-emission mobility.
