Jeep Wrangler Magneto Concept
Based on a 2-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, the Jeep Magneto is designed as a fully capable battery-electric vehicle first shown at the 2021 Easter Jeep Safari. Although the Rubicon’s running gear remains primarily unchanged, Jeep replaced the V6 with a custom-built axial flux electric motor tuned to deliver the same output as the V6: 285 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The motor is even combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Power for the Jeep Magneto concept comes from four battery packs spread throughout the chassis to maintain proper vehicle balance. The batteries as well as the battery control module are stored in waterproof enclosures so the Wrangler keeps its ability to traverse water as deep as 30 inches.
