Emissions-free off-roading may be a thing of the not-too-distant future. At least that’s the promise of the Jeep Magneto electric concept vehicle.
The Magneto is similar to a standard gas-fueled Wrangler Rubicon, albeit with an electric motor and four battery packs installed in place of the standard V6. Truly unique for an electric vehicle, a 6-speed manual transmission delivers power to the wheels. Jeep says the conventional clutch works as it would in a gasoline-powered vehicle. The design of the electric powertrain replicates the type of performance drivers would get from a V6.
