When the Jeep Wrangler 4xe received its Environmental Protection Agency evaluation, all of its electric range became a bit disappointing. Announced as having an all-electric range of 25-miles, it only expands to 21. When it’s okay For Jeep, it’s not yet ideal for plug-in hybrids. Therefore, Stalantis has one solution: trailhead charging stations.

The network will be called the 4xe Charging Network, and it has been developed in partnership with Electrify America. Basically, that means there will be a Jeep-Branded charging Jeep badge of ep f-road trails or nearby stations. Those are the roads that GP has designated as some of the best in the country, and can use the -f-Roders app to check in on the track and earn points for completing it. Those points accumulate towards badges that allow you to flex your off-roading skills over others.

Stalantis is starting this spring with three charging stations: one in Moab, one in Utah, one in Big Bear, California, and one at the Rubicon Trail in Pollock Pines, California. The company claims that more charging stations will come this year, but no details have been received about the specifications yet.

The network consists of Level 2 chargers that will either be solar powered or connected directly to the electrical grid. Unfortunately, these chargers are very slow and that means it can take up to two hours to charge a Wrangler 4xe battery pack. Yes. You have to charge two hours to face 21 miles.

It’s not ideal, but Jeep owners hope to entice fee-charging owners to get started and monitor through the app.
