Whether you want them or not electric vehicles from every manufacturer are coming. Jeep plans to off an electric version of every vehicle in its lineup by 2022.

I’m not ready for electric everything.

Call me a Luddite, call me old fashioned, but I like my gas-powered Jeep. Electric certainly has some nice advantages. Linear and instant power being chief among them.

Considering the age of our electric infrastructure to support electric vehicles eventually we will have to choose to drive today or run air conditioning. There are major cities that have to schedule rolling brownouts in hot weather so the grid doesn’t fail completely.

Ok, enough whining. Here’s what Jeep is bringing to the table.

The Jeep brand is utilizing CES to showcase three plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, the first step in the brand’s plan to offer electrification options on all models by 2022. All Jeep electrified vehicles will carry a new “Jeep 4xe badge.”

The fact that Jeep is going plug-in hybrid instead of full-electric is a good thing. Ease of fueling, maximum range, and electric-assist could be a boon to the off-road capability of the lineup.

Electrification, including the upcoming no-compromise Jeep 4xe vehicles, will modernize the Jeep brand as it strives to become the leader in “green” eco-friendly premium technology.

Jeep electric vehicles will be the most efficient and responsible Jeep vehicles ever, providing absolute and quiet open-air freedom while taking performance, 4×4 capability and driver confidence to the next level.

With greater torque and immediate engine response, Jeep electric vehicles will offer an even more fun-to-drive experience on the road and more capability than ever off the road.

I used to love “Green”. Now it’s an overused buzz word for marketing.

Additional information about the Jeep Wrangler, Compass and Renegade 4xe vehicles, which debut this year, will be provided at the Geneva, New York and Beijing auto shows.
