The Jeep Wrangler 4xe plug-in, which is one of the best selling electric vehicles in America, had a short run as the best-selling PHEV for American car dealers and was one of the quickest-selling cars with any manufacturer.
With this logic in mind, transferring the same powertrain to one of Jeep’s most successful models, branded the Jeep Grand Cherokee, made sense.
The Jeep Wrangler 4×4 competes against a class of one, the Grand Cherokee. The now more-premium Grand Cherokee has to compete against Audi, Volvo, and other up-and-coming brands in the electric vehicle segment.
When comparing it with those established competitors, the Jeep Wrangler falls short in the powertrain and pricing departments in particular.
