Default Jeep And Chrysler Plug-In Hybrids Can Charge Faster Than Ever At Home Now

Jeep And Chrysler Plug-In Hybrids Can Charge Faster Than Ever At Home Now


Quote:



As the automotive industry transitions to electrification, there’s need for better, and faster, charging infrastructure. With that in mind, Mopar has just announced that they’ve developed an at-home wall charger. That means that Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and Jeep Wrangler 4xe owners now have a way to top off much faster than before.

Last year, Jeep announced that they were working on off-road charging stations for their new Wrangler 4xe which seemed odd considering that they didn’t have an at-home version yet. Today, that’s all changed. This new Level 2 (240-volt) at-home wall charger is available in two different configurations both wired and plug-in. That means that if you just want to buy it, plug it into your outlet, and use it, you can.

Both versions can supply up to 32 amps/7.7kW of power which is enough to top off the Wrangler 4xe, the Cherokee 4xe, and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid in just over two hours. That’s roughly six times faster than a Level 1 charger. For Jeep owners that will provide up to 21 miles (34 km) of all-electric power while Chrysler owners will get more than 30 miles (48 km) without having to use their internal combustion engines.

The chargers are available right away and while Mopar says that they’ll start at $599, we’ve already found a few dealers offering them for as low as $569. The chargers are also WiFi-capable so owners can keep an eye on the state of charge remotely and even start and stop charging from anywhere with a data connection. The chargers are also smart-grid optimized which means that they can reduce energy costs by charging at low-rate times.



Mopar notes that these chargers will be universally functional within the family, can be had with either a Jeep or Chrysler-branded faceplate, and are backed by a 3-year warranty.
