Let’s get straight to the point with the most important announcements. Perhaps the most iconic Jeep of all time the Jeep Wrangler, mother of all Jeeps, the original gets a plug. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe is now the most advanced and environmentally friendly Wrangler ever.
And to give the headline of this article some extra explanation. You are only one as far as we are concerned Jeep if there is Jeep on the nose, with also 7 slots. If you do not meet this requirement and you still call yourself a Jeep, then it must be a compliment for Jeep.
One is already in use Jeep Compass and Jeep Renegade 4xe as a Plug-in Hybrid around the Netherlands. And now later this year, the original, the Jeep Wrangler, will be added. For all Jeep fans among us, the good news, you can already order it in a limited and exclusive ‘First Edition’. Basically we have to say from here go see, fall in love, order it and count the days. Because this Jeep Wrangler 4xe Plugin Hybrid is great based on its specifications alone.
The most environmentally friendly Wrangler ever
Jeep calls this First Edition the most environmentally friendly Wrangler ever. And that is not without reason. Anyone who has ever bought a Wrangler has not done so from an ecological point of view, no matter how often you go out into nature with it. The enormous power and exceptional off-road performance simply cost extra fuel. We don’t have to explain that to anyone.
With the Wrangler 4xe, Jeep is entering a new era because thanks to the application of Plug-in Hybrid technology, this Wrangler is transformed into a Jeep that is now respectful of the environment and also suitable for daily use thanks to the electric motor and therefore also now with a emission-free drive. You can call that a revolution. If you had said this 5 years ago, everyone would have looked at you with a big smile. You don’t think a Jeep Wrangler will ever … yes, 2021 is the day.
Still the one and only and even stronger
We should definitely talk about the power of the Wrangler 4xe, which may well be. Thanks to the coupling of two electric motors, a high-voltage battery, the 2.0 liter turbo petrol engine and the automatic TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, the Wrangler 4xe has a combined power of 380 hp (280 kW) and 637 Nm of torque. Jeep states that this is the most advanced powertrain ever fitted to the Jeep Wrangler.
In practice, it means that you can now complete your daily trips in the area completely electrically. We have to say that your own wallbox is highly recommended. After all, it ensures that you always have the extra power when you leave. With a range of up to 50 km electric in combination with fuel and an optimized fuel consumption, you really have a large range. The electric powertrain has also been integrated into the 4×4 system, adding to the Wrangler 4xe’s off-road performance.
Loading options Wrangler 4xe
The ultramodern Jeep Wrangler has an overdose of technology, driving and safety assistance systems. Adaptive cruise control, Forward Collision Warning Plus, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Path Detection, Auto High Beam function on the headlights (prevents dazzling of oncoming traffic) and the reversing camera with front and rear parking sensors are standard.
Furthermore, a Mopar Easy Wallbox for charging at home and a Meenekes charging cable for charging public (on the road) is included. With the included Wallbox you can charge at home according to a plug & play principle. This works with 2.3kW power as standard (in case of a 10Amp home installation). The Wallbox can work with a maximum power of 7.4kW. You have to do this have your home installation adjusted to 32Amp and of course a faster loading time is possible. The battery can then be charged to 80% in 2 hours.
For the physical loading options you will find a “Cargo Organizer” in the luggage compartment and a car cover as standard.
