2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid has been honoured with the title of Green SUV of the Year by industry publication Green Car Journal.

The SUV delivers up to 25 miles of nearly silent, zero-emission, electric-only propulsion which makes it commuter friendly as an all-electric daily drive without range anxiety.

The Wrangler 4xe’s hybrid powertrain combines a high-tech, 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine with two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack and TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Torque from the electric motors arrives instantly on demand from the driver. The powertrain delivers fuel-saving, start-stop operation of the engine.
