Oh, well, that's obvious: The screen says it doesn't have an engine. It's probably just the same UI software from their existing model.

I could never get past about photo twelve, the ads always choked.

Agreed, likely the screen is from their hybrid now.

It’s being reported that battery size for Magneto is 70KW with the battery being 4 small modules that are separated

Yeah, this thing sees to be a hacked together prototype that is never going to see the light of day. It’s clearly not a well designed or thought out vehicle that is meant to be sold or supported over time. This is a big part of what I don’t like about the old guard auto companies.

I agree, at this point it's just a copy & paste. Hybrids are, IMHO, just a bridge on the road to BEVs. It's what companies do while they're trying to figure out a BEV.

Couldn't that describe most Jeeps they sell now, tho?

I’ll be in Moab next week just to get a look at this. I am hoping to talk to someone from Jeep and ask them a bunch of questions.

The whose?

If they don't change the body, why would it look any different from the outside?

-Crissa
It is not a real electric.
