2023 Jeep Small Electric Crossover – Stellantis presents the Dare Forward 2030 strategy in a huge presentation. The company has released the first teaser images for the new Jeep battery-electric vehicle. Although the automaker is sparse with details, it says that the crossover EV will be available in early 2023. Although we only have two images, the photos reveal some details about the Jeep EV.

This vehicle however has split headlights, with a portion on the grille separating the running lights at the top and the main lamps at the bottom.
2023 Jeep Small Electric Crossover Review
Although the grille is sealed, it has a simulated version of Jeep’s seven opening front ends. The bottom section has a subtle blue line and the right side has a lowercase “e”. The image doesn’t show if the narrow opening at the front of the front end is functional. Or merely for aesthetics. The fender flares extend outward from the body along the flank. They are further enhanced by a crease at the top. The wheel wells and sides sills are covered in body cladding. Hidden rear door handles are found in the Jeep’s C-pillar.
The rear has X-shaped elements at the taillights, with a black section of the body that is part the rear hatch. On the lower left is another “e” logo. The black cladding on the rear bumper matches the rest of its lower body. The bottom has a silver element. An EV does not require exhaust pipes.
