Stellantis confirms Jeep EV, Maserati to bring two electric cars by 2023
Automobile group Stellantis on Wednesday has announced its product roadmap for 2022-2023 model cycles and it has confirmed that a Jeep EV is in the works. Also, the auto giant has confirmed that luxury car brand Maserati is working on two electric cars, which will be Grecale and GranTurismo or GranCabrio. Also, both the Maserati electric cars and Jeep EV will launch sometime in 2022 or 2023, as Stellantis has revealed.
Interestingly, Jeep previously teased a Wrangler EV in one of its commercials. Also, it showcased a Grand Cherokee 4xe that would be based on STLA platform. This time, however, Stellantis in its product roadmap has revealed that there will be a single Jeep EV that would arrive by the end of 2023. Interestingly, the STLA platform is well capable of housing other Jeep models. OIn that case, we might see a Jeep Wrangler Magneto making to production in near future.
Moving on to Maserati, the Italian luxury car manufacturer is working on its Grecale crossover that will be the brand's second model in the utility vehicle segment after Levante. The Grecale will be positioned below Levante and it will come with an all-electric powertrain. Also, Maserati will replace the GranTurismo and GranCabrio with a pure electric vehicle.
