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 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.
I used to love “Green”. Now it’s an overused buzz word for marketing.
If and when more information becomes available you will find it here.
