Jeep, the rugged American SUV brand owned by Stellantis NV, is expanding its lineup to meet more-stringent emissions rules and catch up to rival automakers.

The brand known for the off-road Wrangler will bring four fully-electric SUVs to market by 2025, including two all-new models, the company said Thursday. The Jeep Recon, a zero-emission vehicle its top designer calls a “brother” of the popular Wrangler, will go on sale in the US in 2024. The Jeep Avenger, a compact electric SUV meant to navigate tight urban spaces, will enter the European market next year.
