Jeep will build solar charging stations on trails for the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid – Roadshow

Jeep is going to make it easier to juice up your plug-in hybrid Wrangler while out in the

Of course, with 25 miles of electric range, the Wrangler 4xe shouldn’t need a charge while on the Rubicon, and I imagine all the braking one has to do will keep the regenerative power going strong.

In the aptly named Rubicon trim, the 4xe is 744 pounds heavier than a standard gas-powered Wrangler, but it should still outperform its conventional counterpart with all that sweet, sweet instant electric torque.

Morrison confirmed that owners will be able to charge up at Rubicon Springs, the halfway point of the 22-mile Rubicon Trail, as well as on select trails in Moab, Utah.

Drivers will be able to fully charge the Wrangler 4xe in about 2 hours, and most chargers will be placed in camping or lunch spots where folks will likely want to spend a lot of time.

To coincide with the launch of the plug-in hybrid Wrangler 4xe, the company will install solar charging stations on select trails in California and Utah.
