Jeep Wrangler 4xe is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, 4-cylinder petrol engine linked to two electric motors and a 400V, 17kWh Lithium-ion battery pack. The powertrain is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and delivers a combined output of 375hp/627Nm. The SUV promises an all-electric drive range of 40km and offers three driving modes: Hybrid, Electric, and eSave.
