This is the all-electric, six-speed manual–equipped Jeep Wrangler Magneto Concept, and in many ways, it represents the bridge between past and future for the brand. I had just 15 short minutes to myself with the Magneto, but I learned a lot in that timeframe. To get the full experience, watch the above video so you can see (and hear) just how wild this Jeep is.

The Magneto’s powertrain is good for 270 horsepower, with somewhere around 350 lb-ft of torque as well. In the state that we drove it (without doors or a backseat), the concept weighs 5,750 pounds. Jeep limited the torque to mimic the experience of a combustion engine. Need to climb a rock? Drop down to first. Want to pick up speed through a flat area? Pin the go pedal and get into 4th
