The Jeep Wrangler 4XE is The False God of Electric SUVs

Jeep Wrangler 4XE dailycarblog

I don’t think there is a fully electric SUV available to buy just right now. The Tesla Cybertruck is about two years away and the Rivian Pickup is scheduled for 2021… possibly. Hybrid and plugin hybrids is the best alternative to pure-electric at the moment. Although the advantages such hybrid powertrains offer is debatable, but I suppose it’s better than nothing. And this is where the Jeep Wrangler 4XE enters the hybrid train of vehicles. Jeep refuses to use hybrid and instead opts for the term electric. However, the specs give the game away. The Jeep Wrangler 4XE is a bog-standard plug-in hybrid, it’s kind of electric.
