The segment of electric vehicles is certainly trending in the last years. Although they’re not a dominant force in the automobile market, we know that they are the future. For that reason, the past few years are being marked by transitions to the electric segment. Companies such as GM, Ford, and Jeep have been making significant changes to ensure a large scale of electric vehicles for the next years. After all, Tesla keeps stealing market share with its electric lineup. Even companies such as Apple and Xiaomi are planning their entrace into the electric segment. Today, Jeep has presented the Jeep Magneto. The vehicle is a very interesting wrangler project that fits into the electric segment. Obviously, consumers of vehicles of this kind will also need a proper replacement for their gas-moved vehicles once the electric segment becomes dominant.
Back in the last year’s Easter Jeep Safari Off-road festival, the company launched a concept version of the electric Wrangle, Magneto. This year, in the off-road vehicle segment, the company launched the Jeep Magneto 2.0.

The first generation electric motor can output 285 hp and 371 Nm of Torque. The second-generation also sees significant improvements in power. It can reach 625 hp and 1156 Nm.

The Jeep Magneto 2.0 also uses the body of the two-door Jeep Wrangler. However, it has a six-speed electric manual transmission, the so-called e-manual. It has about 95 km / h acceleration in just two seconds. According to the reports, the new Jeep Magneto will come in 2024. The price of the vehicle will sit between 50,000 to 60 dollars, in the United States. Of course, the price may be different depending on the region. Worth noting that the performance and appearance are subjects to change. There is at least a full year to come ahead of the launch. So the things are not set into the stone yet.
