Stellantis: First BEV Jeep Coming In 2023.

A recent Stellantis earnings presentation revealed that Jeep will release its first all-electric vehicle in 2023, and it also revealed various other rough release dates for Stellantis EVs and PHEVs. Sadly, though, the information is still very non-specific.

The Detroit Press points out that the company had a lackluster response to its recent EV Day, with investors hitting the snooze button due to lack of specific plans by the automaker.

This probably led to the company giving the public (especially investors) at least a little bit more information in its recent earnings presentation, which at least told us what year the company intends to offer electrified vehicles for each brand.

This chart shows us that Europe-only brands like Peugeot, Opel/Vauxhall, and Citroen will get new full electric models first, in the second half of 2021. (Note that these brands already sell some fully electric models in Europe.) In 2022, this electric expansion continues, but the U.S. will get just one BEV from Maserati and a plugin hybrid from Dodge. Jeep finally gets a full electric model in 2023.

There are some notable blank lines on the chart, though. Ram (Dodge Trucks), Abarth, and Chrysler aren’t getting any plugin cars until after 2023. This means that Ram Trucks will have no answer to the F-150 Lightning or the Tesla Cybertruck. This could prove to be a big mistake for Stellantis, as loyal truck buyers may choose to switch.
