As part of a collaboration with Electrify America, Jeep will install EV charging stations at off-road trailheads throughout the United States.
Chargers on the Jeep 4xe Charging Network would be solar-powered or grid-connected.
The first stations will open in Moab, Utah, the Rubicon Trail in Pollock Pines, California, and Big Bear, California, this spring.
The chargers will support Level 2 (240 volts) charging, which Jeep claims will recharge the 17-kWh battery pack in the Wrangler 4xe in about two hours and provide 49 MPGe and 21 miles of electric range.
The chargers will be free for Jeep 4xe owners to use via a mobile app and will be compatible with the company’s future EVs.
Additional fees will be implemented at Jeep Badge of Honor off-road trails throughout the United States during the next year.
The announcement comes only a few days after Jeep unveiled the Magneto concept for an all-electric Wrangler.
According to Jeep, its concept is based on the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, and it features an electric motor with up to 273 pound-feet of torque and 285 horsepower, as well as an 800-volt system spread through four battery packs.
