All new Jeep, Chrysler and Ram products will be electric from 2026

The big news from Stellantis’ (née Chrysler) big Dare Forward 2030 press conference yesterday wasn’t exactly the very first all-new all-electric Jeep model. Instead, it was an unspoken statistic that most people (myself included) overlooked, but which Daniel Murias of Motorpasión did. That is, every new offering from Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge and Ram will be available as a battery-electric model from 2026.

Now, as it was with Volvo in 2017, when they announced that every new model would be “electrified” from 2019, that’s not means that the company will only offer BEVs from that date. What it does mean, though, is that every new Jeep model (or Chrysler, or Dodge, or Ram truck) introduced after 2026 will be available with a plug — and that, from a company with a CEO who is arguably retarded. as Stellantis, seems like a very big step in the right direction (even they are “forced” into the space of the electric vehicle).

In addition to reducing tailpipe emissions, Stellantis’ Dare Forward plan promotes carbon neutral production and the creation of a circular, “cradle-to-cradle” business model. The plan calls for a 50% CO2 reduction by 2030 (compared to 2021 statistics), with a CO2 zero target of 2038. (!) “Dare Forward 2030 inspires us to become so much more than we have ever been, said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares. “We are expanding our vision, breaking boundaries and embracing a new mindset, one that seeks to transform all facets of mobility for the betterment of our families, communities and the societies in which we operate.”

Other fun facts included the pledge to sell five million BEV units by 2030, “to reach 100% of the passenger car BEV sales mix in Europe and 50% passenger cars and light trucks in the United States.”

What’s good for Stellantis employees

So all positive, but I want to draw your attention to another quote from Tavares in the press release. It reads: “We are making Stellantis an extraordinary workplace and a magnet for those with the drive to improve customers’ lives, unleashing our full potential for the digital and electrified future.”

That line is particularly humorous, as it follows just a week after a report from Automotive News who claimed that Stellantis sent his employees emails with tips for finding new jobs elsewhere. (Emphasis mine.) “This is not a good way to motivate people to work hard for the company,” Christine Virassamy, a representative of the CFDT union, told Bloomberg in an interview. “We asked them to stop.”

“We want to be a great place to work,” seems to be the message. “But, like, not for you.”

I hope the Stellantis staff stays on, and I’ll be taking a serious look at the Chrysler Airflow, for example, when it goes into production and looks something like the concept they showed at CES in January. What about you? Any electric/electrified Mopar in your potential car future? Scroll down to the comments and let us know.

In the meantime, check out the official “key points” from the Dare Forward 2030 conference below and see if there’s anything that resonates with you, and with your vision of how Stellantis should and could build by 2030. Have fun!
