Will this affordable American EV come to India?

The major EV push in India so far has been brought by manufacturers like Tata and MG. The biggest driver behind this growth has been Tata with its Nexon EV. Seeing the success of the Nexon EV, many manufacturers have started planning their own version of an affordable EV. Even MG is planning two affordable EVs, one to rival the Nexon EV and one that could sit as the cheapest EV in the market once it is launched. Now, an American manufacturer is working on an electric SUV that can take on the existing players in India. We are talking about Jeep. Jeep is planning to enter this race soon. Its new electric car was recently seen during testing in Europe. In today’s article, we will talk about this affordable American EV and whether it will come to India or not.

The spy pictures of this Jeep electric car were posted by CarExpert. The car is covered in camouflage, but we can get some important details through it. First, we get attractive DRLs, something we usually see with Citroen cars. The side profile looks neat with more creases. We may also see blacked-out alloy wheels. At the rear, we also have blacked-out tail lamps. The design is very similar to the concept that the brand had showcased in the past.

Which platform will it use?

The platform used in this new SUV is of great importance for the Indian market. Why? The SUV is based on the eCMP platform, which is an electrified version of the common modular platform that underpins the C3 in India. So with this platform, this SUV has more chances of hitting the Indian shores. Another platform that Jeep can use is the STLA platform developed by Stelantis. In such a situation, it has to be seen on which platform this SUV will be based.

One thing to note is that this EV will come with off-roading capabilities as Jeep injects its own DNA into each of its cars. Which technology will be used will become clear once more details about the product are revealed.

Jeep has plans to launch several new products in India. There is no confirmation from the brand regarding the launch of this particular EV here, but we expect Jeep to bring it to India. Jeep is aware that India is a price sensitive market and they will need to keep costs down. We mentioned above that this EV could be based on the eCMP platform. If it does, it could certainly bring down costs for the American manufacturer. This way, Jeep will be able to market the EV more aggressively.
