Jeep branded charging stations to open soon

The American brand Jeep is completing the construction of its charging stations, which will be installed on America’s most popular off-road routes.

Electrification is inevitable, even for automakers not usually associated with electric vehicles. Gone are the days when electric cars were considered uninteresting cars – even a car as reliable and durable as the Jeep Wrangler now has an electrified version, introduced last year.

But the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid has one major drawback.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the SUV can travel up to 34 km on electricity, while the automaker has assured that the car can travel 40 km.

To address this issue, Jeep announced that it will install charging stations along the routes of three popular off-road destinations in the US, namely Moab, Utah; The Rubicon Trail in Pollock Pines, California; and Big Bear, California.

The charging stations will be located next to the Jeep Badge of Honor tracks, which were created in collaboration with Electrify America and will open this spring. These stations will either be directly connected to the grid or, as the images show, will use solar energy to generate electricity.

Jeep 4xe owners will need to log in through a dedicated Electrify America mobile app to be able to charge their car for free. The app also allows owners to initiate and control a charging session.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Jeep introduced the Magneto Concept electric SUV. In anticipation of the annual Easter safari, Jeep has unveiled three concepts that will take part in the races. Among them is the Magneto Concept electric SUV.
