2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe in Calgary, AB
Hybrids and Plug-in Electrical Vehicles may have seemed like a strange novelty 20 years ago, but the world is changing. Drivers have finally begun to demand change, and automakers like jeep have responded by offering some hybrid powertrains and electric concepts here and there. That is, until just recently when Jeep showed its dedication to furthering hybrid technology by revealing the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, an off-road plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).
This move shows that Jeep is serious about advancing hybrid and electric technology because they could have simply made smaller, more urban models like the Renegade or Compass into PHEVs, but no, they went with one of their most rugged models, the classic Wrangler instead. With an anticipated US release of December 2020, Canadian dealerships should not be far behind.

There is nothing to criticize here. The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is still true to what it is at its core, a Wrangler. The off-road capability is undeniable, and its styling, although accented with blue to indicate its identity as a PHEV, remains rugged and genuine as ever. Jeep made a wise choice not to alter the design too much since that is such a big part of the identity of the Wrangler. The technology and other features mimic the higher trims of the gasoline Wrangler, leaving little to be desired.
