Jeep To Go Electric…..30 models by 2022
Fiat Chrysler Group (FCA) has just announced that by 2022 a total of 30 vehicles of the Group will be electrified. Global architectures should make this possible across all segments. It starts with the new Jeep Wrangler. The iconic SUV comes from 2020 with a plug-in hybrid system.
Figures and data on the electrified version of the off-road classic do not yet publish the Americans. But the group has decided where the electrical system is produced. The Toledo plant in Ohio produces power electronics and a charger for the Wrangler PHEV. In addition, the software will be installed there.
The power electronics of the Wrangler sits, packaged in a protective structure, under the vehicle between exhaust and cardan shaft. The position supports a low center of gravity. Whether she has influence on the off-road capabilities of the SUV, is not yet known. Probably supported in the Wrangler PHEV an electric motor, the 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine. The system performance should be more than 300 hp.
Fiat had invested about nine billion in the electrification, the recently deceased CEO Sergio Marchionne said in June 2018. Plug-in hybrids should swiftly replace the diesel engine.
