Jeep shared a video teaser showing a hybrid variant of the Wrangler SUV with the index 4xe.

The novelty should debut in December this year: it is promised that the hybrid Wrangler will be so quiet that “even a wild horse will not bother.”

The presentation of the conceptual Wrangler 4xe took place at the CES electronics show in Las Vegas in January, and even then the company said that it was planning mass production of the model.

There is no information about the power unit of the novelty yet. More compact hybrids, such as the Compass and Renegade crosses, received an electric motor and a 1.3-liter turbo engine, which in total produce up to 240 hp. On electric traction, such crossovers can cover a distance of up to 50 km.

Electric Wrangler instead of a turbocharged engine can get a regular 3.6-liter V6 engine. In addition, such an SUV can get a manual transmission and four-wheel drive, while in hybrid crosses the rear axle is driven by an electric motor.

The Wrangler with a hybrid powertrain is speculated to only have an additional port hatch for charging the onboard batteries.

In addition, just recently, the American company Jeep demonstrated the revived Wagoneer SUV in another teaser. It should be emphasized that the premiere of the new model of the American brand will take place on September 3 this year.
