EVs have been in the spotlight recently as the Biden administration steers the country toward an electric-car future and as gas prices continue to soar at the pump.

On Friday, Jeep announced it would debut its all-electric SUV concept Jeep Wrangler Magneto 2.0 at the Easter Jeep Safari off-road festival in Moab, Utah, on April 9 along with six other custom vehicles meant to showcase Jeep parts and possibilities for future models.

The Magneto is built on a Wrangler frame that's been stretched by a foot to fit its new powertrain, which includes four battery packs with a combined capacity of 70 kilowatt-hours and a flux axial electric motor rated at 625 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque that drives the wheels through a conventional six-speed transmission and 4x4 system.

Last month, Ford Motor Company announced that its Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup would also be hitting the streets soon.
