- The Wrangler 4xe Plug-in Hybrid is expected to arrive in European dealerships before this summer.
Four months after its world premiere, staged last September in Detroit, the new Jeep® Wrangler 4xe is available for pre-booking in selected European markets before going on sale later this year. Customers in Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium and Austria, can be among the first to discover the new Jeep Wrangler 4xe “First Edition” with just a few clicks on the dedicated website, and express their interest in being contacted when the vehicle will be available at dealerships.
This new initiative serves as confirmation of the journey embarked upon early last year, with the pre-booking initiative for the Renegade and Compass 4xe – a resounding success, generating a lot of interest across Europe. The arrival of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe also marks a significant moment in the brand's evolution and another step in the strategy towards the electrification of its entire range, announced in 2020. This journey will include the introduction of at least one electric or electrified version of each model in the coming years.
Following the Renegade and Compass 4xe, the application of plug-in hybrid electric technology to the Jeep Wrangler will transform the Jeep icon into a vehicle that is suited for everyday use in the city, courtesy of the zero-emissions drive granted by a full-electric mode. It will also be more capable on the roughest terrain thanks to the instant availability of torque and the improved performance resulting from the combination of two forms of propulsion – turbo petrol and electric.
Today, the dedicated website launched in Italy, France, Germany and Switzerland and will be soon available in the other markets involved in the initiative.
