Auto123 looks at the new 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid variant.
With the recent presentation of the Ford Bronco, it was obvious that Jeep was going to strike back with news about its Wrangler. It has now done so not just once but twice. The FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Group’s most profitable banner has no intention of being outpaced by its rival.
So, after the Wrangler 392 concept (with V8 engine), the automaker has now presented the first plug-in hybrid version in the history of the model, the Wrangler 4xe. Better yet, the electric range of the latter will be reasonable at 40 km.
The arrival of this variant comes as no surprise; we already knew the company was working on a greener version of its model. The 4xe PHEV is expected in dealerships early next year. Fiat Chrysler CEO Mike Manley recently said this Wrangler will be the cornerstone of Jeep's electrification strategy in North America. The model will also be available in Europe and China by the turn of 2021.
