JEEP WRANGLES PLUG-IN HYBRID

- Driving.ca

Jeep's 2021 Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid will start at $54,995 in Sahara trim and at $59,995 for the Rubicon. Both models use a turbocharg­ed 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, with an engine-mounted motor-generator unit, eight-speed automatic transmissi­on with integrated motor-generator, and a 17-kwh battery pack. The system produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, and can go an estimated 40 kilometres on electricit­y alone. Once that depletes, the Wrangler 4xe operates as a convention­al hybrid, running on gasoline, electricit­y, or a combinatio­n of the two as required, and recharging with regenerati­ve braking.
