As you may have heard, Chrysler and Jeep have been shifting their focus onto creating an electric vehicle lineup, beginning with plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). Chrysler has put electric power into the Pacifica, while Jeep has done so for the Wrangler and the Grand Cherokee with the 4xe powertrain. But, of course, creating an EV lineup requires giving owners a way to charge their vehicles. This is why Mopar has announced their very own EV chargers to go with the current PHEV models and all future EVs. Continue reading below to learn more about how easy Mopar is making charging EV models at home.

Chrysler and Jeep PHEV models

Currently, there are three models with PHEV power, as was previously mentioned. Jeep’s 4xe powertrain combines two electric motors powered by a 400-volt battery pack with a 2.0L turbocharged I-4 engine to eliminate range anxiety. 4xe is available for the 2021 Wrangler models and the 2022 Grand Cherokee, but Jeep plans to continue the 4xe powertrain with these models and extend it to the entire Jeep lineup. The 4xe powertrain offers the Grand Cherokee a 57 miles-per-gallon-equivalent, 443 miles of total driving range, and 24 miles of all-electric driving. The Wrangler provides 49 MPGe, 370 miles of combined driving range, and 21 miles of all-electric driving. The Chrysler Pacifica PHEV powertrain also operates with two electric motors and a 400-volt battery pack. However, range anxiety is not an issue thanks to a Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine. The Pacifica Hybrid offers 80 miles-per-gallon-equivalent, 30 miles of all-electric power, and a combined range of over 500 miles.

What kinds of EV chargers are available?

All Jeep and Chrysler PHEV models come with a Level 1 EV charger. This 120-volt charger is simply plugged into an electrical outlet and provides the 400-volt battery pack a full charge in approximately 12 hours. However, Mopar has made its own Level 2 EV charger available for purchase. This charger is a specific unit that cuts the total charge time to just two hours with 240 volts. Mopar’s Level 2 EV charging unit is smart-grid optimized and Energy Star-certified to offer a perfect balance of cost, efficiency, and availability. This allows owners to participate in energy credit programs where they’re available and reduce energy costs by charging at low-rate times. These units are weatherproof for outdoor and indoor use, portable, lockable and lightweight. Each unit is backed by a three-year manufacturer warranty and is universally compatible. Additionally, the units can be ordered with Chrysler or Jeep-branded faceplates. To provide convenient installation of the Level 2 chargers, Mopar has teamed up with Qmerit, an expert installation service provider. All Qmerit-certified installers are screened, insured, and licensed to meet high standards and offer services wherever and whenever needed.
