Jeep again introduced Jeep Magneto electric car technology at the 56th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari (9-17/4).

Nicknamed the Jeep Magneto 2.0, this Wrangler-based electric car was introduced along with several other Jeep concept and custom cars.

Call it the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe Concept, the Jeep ’41 Concept, and the Jeep Bob Concept.

“The Easter Jeep Safari is the perfect opportunity for Jeep to push the boundaries of SUV development and stay connected with customers,” said Jim Morrison, Jeep Senior Vice President United States.

The first interesting thing that is immediately noticeable is the Magneto 2.0’s white-blue appearance which is increasingly aggressive and suitable for off-roading.

Unlike the Magneto that appeared at last year’s Easter Jeep Safari, the Magneto 2.0 can add a wheelbase of 12 inches or 304.8 mm.

In addition to the increase in wheelbase length, the Magneto 2.0 gets a 76.2 mm lift kit and 20-inch wheels wrapped in 40-inch off-road tires.

Not only that, Jeep also embeds off-road drive components such as the Dynatrac 60 Pro-Rock front axle and the Dynatrac 80 Pro-Rock rear axle.

Regarding performance, the Jeep Magneto 2.0 gets an axial flux electric motor with an 800 volt electrical system as before.

For Magneto 2.0, Jeep doubled the amperage in the drive system to 600 amperes.

As a result, the Magneto 2.0 electric motor no longer produces 285 hp and 370 Nm of torque, but 633 hp and 1,152 Nm of torque.

Jeep claims the Magneto 2.0 can run from 0-96 km/h in just 2 seconds.

But rather than speeding, Jeep calls the power and torque of the Magneto 2.0 suitable for challenging rock-climbing.

Like the first Magneto, Magneto 2.0 also has a battery capacity of 70 kWh.
