Jeep is expected to debut its plug-in hybrid (PHEV), the new Wrangler 4xe, in the Europe Middle East Africa (EMEA) region ‘early in 2021’.
The US-based company describes the 4xe as the most capable, technically advanced and eco-friendly Wrangler ever.
Models are expected to be available in Europe, China and the United States by early 2021 and its debut follows the introduction of The Jeep Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe models which began arriving in Europe this summer. A Jeep Grand Commander PHEV also launched in China last year.
The Wrangler 4xe’s plug-in hybrid powertrain is capable of up to 25 miles (according to US homologation cycle) of nearly silent, zero-emission electric-only propulsion, making it commuter friendly as an all-electric daily driver without range anxiety and the most-capable and eco-friendly Jeep vehicle off-road – combined with the open-air freedom that only Jeep Wrangler offers.
Jeep will offer electrification options on each nameplate in the next few years as it strives to become the leader in eco-friendly premium technology. Electrified Jeep vehicles will carry the 4xe badge. Jeep electric vehicles will be the most efficient and responsible Jeep vehicles ever, taking performance, 4×4 capability and driver confidence to the next level.
“Our Jeep 4xe vehicles will be the most efficient, responsible and capable that the brand has ever created,” said Christian Meunier, Global President of Jeep Brand – FCA. “We are committed to make Jeep the greenest SUV brand. The electrification of the Jeep lineup will allow commuters to travel solely on electric power, delivering an efficient and fun on-road experience and offering an ability to enjoy even more Jeep capability off-road in nearly complete silence.”
