Jeep Wrangler 4xe Plug-in Hybrid Priced for Canada

Plug-in Wrangler for $55k

  • Expected 40 km electric range for plug-in Jeeps

  • Qualifies for $8,000 incentive in PQ


Jeep has just announced pricing for the 375 hp 4xe model. The first plug-in hybrid Jeep Wrangler will start from just under $55,000 when it arrives here early next year, and it’s expected to qualify for the highest EV rebate in Quebec thanks to the 17 kWh electric battery.

With a 2.0L four and an electric motor-generator attached to the eight-speed automatic, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe offers 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. More impressively, it also offers an estimated 4.7Le/100 km has an estimated electric-only range of up to 40 km.

So in addition to electric driving around town, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe models will be able to silently traverse off-road trails with the nickel manganese cobalt battery pack mounted under the second-row seat and protected from the elements. Because the motor is attached ahead of the transmission, the Wrangler still offers proper 4×4 and plenty of torque multiplication.

New Electric Blue trim including the tow hooks and Rubicon graphics on that trim as well as the Jeep badging sets the 4xe apart from other Wranglers. Behind the wheel, new E Selec drive modes let the user pick the battery mode that best suits their desired driving.

Offered on Sahara and Rubicon trims, the first will get 20-inch wheels, a body-colour hardtop, LED lights, 8.4-inch display, 2.72:1 full-time 4WD, and leather seats. The Rubicon model adds 4:1 Rock Trac heavy-duty full-time 4×4 along with other Rubicon off-road extras.

Sahara models will start from $54,995 and though will not qualify for the federal rebate, Fiat Chrysler says they qualify for the $8,000 Quebec Drive Electric incentive and the $1,500 CEVforBC rebate. The Wrangler Rubicon 4xe is pricier, starting from $59,995 but should still qualify.
