Jeep expands EV access at off-road trailheads
The Jeep® brand announced March 26 that it is installing Jeep-branded EV charging stations at or near the trailheads of off-road trails over the next year, in conjunction with the launch of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid.
Moab in Utah and Rubicon and Big Bear in California will be among the first to get these EV Level 2 charging stations, expected to be operational this spring. Jeep is partnering with Electrify America to create the Jeep 4xe Charging Network. Additional locations will be added during the year, according to a statement from the company.
Jeep 4xe Charging Stations will be either directly connected to the power grid or use solar power to generate electricity.
"Electrification opens a new chapter in the Jeep brand story, and it brings an entirely new level of excitement and enjoyment to our enthusiastic owners," said Christian Meunier, Jeep brand CEO — Stellantis. "Key to making Jeep brand the greenest SUV brand is assuring our owners can enjoy the benefits of electric propulsion wherever they go, including the most iconic off-road trails in the country."
