The electric Jeep Magneto on its way to Moab

Max Eisenhardt can fly, but if he ever wants to experience off-roading like us non-mutants, Jeep has just the thing.

Jeep will be bringing a new Magneto model to the upcoming Moab Easter Jeep Safari event, which it uses to show off new concept trucks to its biggest fans every year.

The brand has released a teaser image of a Wrangler wearing the name it shares with The X-Men’s archenemy, which it recently trademarked and will almost certainly be appearing on the all-electric Wrangler that it previously announced would be debuting in Utah.

Details have not been revealed, but previous renderings suggest it is basically a current Wrangler with its engine replaced by an electric motor that sends power to the wheels through a conventional transmission and 4×4 system. One thing it likely won’t have is an actual magneto, which is a type of generator more commonly used to run the spark plugs on gas-powered lawnmowers.

No word yet if the Magneto is destined for production, but it and other concepts should be revealed before the safari begins on March 27.
