Deliveries Begin for Jeep’s $6,300 Full-Suspension E-Bike

Jeep isn’t just a leader in the four-wheel off-road market. It aims to be a leader in the two-wheeled segment as well. And its new e-bike pushes it closer to that goal.

Jeep recently partnered with e-bike brand QuiteKat to create an e-bike worthy of the Jeep logo. The result is an e-bike that churns out 118 foot-pounds of torque (160 Newton meters) with 1500 Watts of peak output.

It features a nine-speed Shimano gear set, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, and a pair 26-inch diameter fat-tires that are 4.8 inches wide to boot.

So, yeah, it’s more than just a sticker package — this is an e-bike worthy of the Jeep name indeed.

The price of the Jeep e-bike ranges from $5,899 to $6,327 depending whether customers specify the 750-Watt ultra-drive motor or the 1000-Watt unrestricted upgrade kit.

The onboard battery is rated at 14.5 amp-hours (48 volts), which is good for anywhere from 30 to 60 miles of range, depending on how much the rider relies on electric assist.

As you can see, the thing is beefy indeed. But despite its sizable stature, it’s not incredibly heavy. It weighs a mere 79 pounds. And it can carry up to 300 pounds.

It comes in two sizes: 17-inch small/medium and 19-inch medium/large.

The bikes are now shipping. So, if you place an order now, you won’t have to wait very long to receive it, unlike virtually any other piece of outdoor equipment this year.
