Here’s the scoop from Pinckney Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Pinckney, MI

 

As part of the 2021 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, UT, Jeep announced a partnership with Electrify America to create the Jeep 4xe Charging Network. The network will consist of Jeep-branded EV charging stations to be installed near the trailheads of Jeep Badge of Honor trails.

“Electrification opens a new chapter in the Jeep brand story, and it brings an entirely new level of excitement and enjoyment to our enthusiastic owners,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep Brand Chief Executive Officer. “Key to making Jeep brand the greenest SUV brand is assuring our owners can enjoy the benefits of electric propulsion wherever they go, including the most iconic off-road trails in the country.”

Where will these charging stations be located?

Initially, the Jeep 4xe Charging Network, consisting of Level 2 charging stations, will be located at the Moab, Rubicon Trail, and Big Bear Jeep Badge of Honor trailheads. All of this first wave of charging stations are scheduled to be operational this spring. Subsequent Jeep 4xe Charging Stations are scheduled to be up and running around the country by the end of 2021.

Who is Electrify America?

Electrify America LLC is a DC fast-charging network based in the U.S. The company plans to invest $2 billion over 10 years in Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) infrastructure and education. Electrify America expects to install approximately 800 total charging stations by December 2021. During this period, the company will be expanding to 29 metro areas and 45 states, including two cross-country routes.

“It is our goal to provide electric vehicle drivers with the freedom to get to where they want to go — whether it be on a highway or off-road — and we look forward to bringing Jeep enthusiasts along on the journey,” said Giovanni Palazzo, president and chief executive officer of Electrify America. “Through the customizable electric vehicle charging offerings of our Electrify Commercial B2B brand, we were able to work with Jeep to identify where their drivers will need charging access most, and make it a reality.”

Does Electrify America just install roadside charging stations?

No, in addition to roadside charging, Electrify America’s Electrify Home program offers home charging solutions for consumers. Current products offer fast charging protocols controlled by wifi-connected phone apps. In addition, Electrify America has a commercial division that provides charging solutions for businesses looking to develop fleet-level electric vehicle programs.

How long does it take to change a Wrangler 4xe at a trailhead?

The Electrify America Jeep 4xe trailhead chargers will deliver Level 2 (240-volt) charging. With Level 2 charging, the 17 kilowatt-hour battery pack in the Jeep Wrangler 4xe can be fully recharged in about two hours. Of course, recharge times will be shorter for Wrangler 4xe owners that are looking to just top off the battery pack before heading out.
