Just a month after Dodge teasing its first electric vehicle (EV) muscle car, parent company Stellantis has alluded to two new exciting EV releases, one referring to Dodge’s upcoming muscle EV, and the other coming from the classic brand Jeep.
Vehicle brand parent company Stellantis plans to launch an electrified Dodge vehicle as soon as 2022, with Jeep planning to launch an EV as soon as 2023, with more to come by 2025, according to Motortrend.
The launches will include an all-wheel-drive electric Dodge muscle car, as well as an all-electric Jeep – which many expect to be a remake of the classic Jeep Wrangler.
The news comes from a Stellantis earnings presentation, in which the company also shared EV timelines for Chrysler and Ram.
Dodge is set to launch a RAM pickup EV as soon as 2024, while other Stellantis brands like Maserati and Alfa Romeo are expected to drop first EVs by 2027 in the U.S.; though it still is not clear when Chrysler will dive into the EV waters.

Last year, Stellantis spent $360 million euros on emissions credits, most of which were purchased from Tesla.
In spite of the company’s global leadership in the EV space, Tesla was not invited to the White House Thursday for an address regarding EVs by President Joe Biden. Though Tesla was not invited, Stellantis, Ford, and General Motors (GM) were.
Later in the day, however, Biden signed an executive order to electrify as many as 50 percent of new cars sold in the U.S. by 2030.
