According to a recent story by Michael Wayland of MSN, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares sees a $25,000 electric Jeep coming to the United States “very soon.”

The cheapest Jeep in the United States is currently selling for around $29,445 which no options and in white only, including destination charges. If it did list for $25,000, the new Jeep would cost $26,595 with current destination charges; and buyers wanting to choose a color beyond a single default would likely have to pay another $500-$600. Even with these conditions, the price would be low for any Jeep, much less a battery-electric model.

Tavares said the new vehicle would be priced near the Citroën e-C3, a crossover starting at €23,300.

The actual quote was, according to Wayland, “In the same way we brought you the €20,000 Euro Citroën e-C3, you will have a $25,000 Jeep very soon.”  The e-C3 is considerably cheaper than the new Jeep Avenger, which starts at €35,000.

While Tesla announced a future car in that price range, it has a long history of not delivering on its price promises.

The Wagoneer S is to be launched tomorrow in New York.
