Jeep’s newest bestseller is quieter in more ways than one. This month, parent company Stellantis reported a 12% drop in annual Jeep sales in the U.S. in 2022 compared to 2021, but about a quarter of all Jeep Wranglers sold last year had plugs. I pointed out that it is an in-hybrid Wrangler 4xe. This equates to over 43,000 of his Wrangler 4xe models sold in 2022, a 46% increase compared to 2021.
“Despite continued industry market conditions in 2021 and 2022, we have seen strong demand for PHEV products. It negatively impacted overall sales,” Komor.
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe was introduced in 2020 for the 2021 model year and combines a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with two electric motors, one engine-mounted and one transmission-mounted. It has a 17 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Produces 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The EPA rates the 4xe’s all-electric range at just 22 miles for a total of 20 mpg. It’s the least efficient non-luxury plug-in hybrid, but that hasn’t stopped more buyers from choosing it than any other PHEV sold by any other automaker.
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe will qualify for the revised EV tax credit passed last year as part of the Inflation Reduction Act, but it’s unclear if battery procurement requirements will cut incentives after March. For now, the 2023 Jeep Wrangler is eligible for up to $7,500 (plus applicable state incentives) from the federal government thanks to his $56,530 starting price, which includes mandatory destination charges.
Jeep also said its Grand Cherokee 4xe, which is new for 2022 and eligible for the revised tax credit for 2023, sold 5,813 units, more than one in ten Grand Cherokees sold last year. rice field.
