The first electric Jeep is finally here. The new Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the first-ever plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.
This EV comes with everything you’d expect from the Jeep brand combined with the eco-friendliness and capability of an EV.
Long gone are the days when hybrids feel underpowered and overhyped. This electric Jeep is just as powerful as the ever-loved gas-powered Wrangler. That means you can take this beast off-road and enjoy nature while preserving that nature with a greener engine.
Here’s what you need to know about this amazing innovation:
Let’s Talk Power
The Wrangler 4ex is the culmination of engine and performance technology. Start with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine and add two electric motors. This combination gives you a solid 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This combination is even more powerful than Jeep’s non-hybrid engines.
The two electric motors are powered by a 17.0-kWh lithiuim0ion-nickel-manganese-cobalt battery pack. You’ll be able to drive 21 miles on pure electricity before the hybrid engine takes over and provides a fuel economy of 49 mpg.
If you’re looking for speed, this electric Jeep will deliver. Crank this baby into four-wheel drive, and you’ll go from a standstill to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds.
Notice The Difference
The Jeep Wrangler 4ex will stand out from gas-powered Jeeps by both its increased power and fuel economy, along with some sleek new Electric Blue accents. This color makes it’s way inside through stitching on the seats and trim panels.
The other difference is at your feet. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is loaded with regenerative braking. This innovative system turns the energy created from braking into power for your hybrid battery. More importantly, you can control your speed with only one pedal. Unlike gas-only engines, your electric Jeep will respond to your pedaling. Lift your foot, and the car slows down.
Make sure you visit your local Jeep dealer to see one-pedal driving in action.
You don’t have to worry about finding a charging station when you’re out and about. Your electric Jeep will come 120-volt charging system that plugs into any old outlet at your house. You can fully charge your battery in under 12 hours without any special equipment.
Of course, you can also upgrade to a 240-volt system that can get you fully charged in around two hours. You can even get a free estimate from our partners, Qmerit, for a professional installed Level II (240v) charging system at home.
