The novelty owes its appearance to the 80th anniversary, which this American automaker celebrates this year. The hybrid Wrangler will go on sale in the European car market early next month.
Jeep will offer its European customers the Jeep Wrangler 4xe hybrid SUV in June. The novelty will be on a par with the hybrid Renegade and Compass. The electrified Wrangler will be available in three versions: Sahara, Rubicon and a special 80th Anniversary edition.
It is now impossible to ask the price of the new product, the automaker has not yet announced the price tags for its new hybrid. The novelty can be distinguished from an ordinary SUV by the blue decor in the exterior, which hints at its environmental friendliness.
The 380-horsepower hybrid includes a two-liter gasoline turbo engine, a pair of motor-generators and a battery. The role of the transmission is played by an automatic gearbox with eight steps.
On electricity alone, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe will travel about 50 kilometers in urban conditions. The battery can be recharged from the mains in less than three hours. The new hybrid SUV will accelerate to hundreds of kilometers in 6.4 seconds.
The type of all-wheel drive depends on the modification, and the list of standard equipment includes modern multimedia with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, an Alpine audio system, a blind spot monitoring system, a parking assistant and much more.
