I'm sure the EV is better offroad. Max torque from 0rpm, no stalling, and I doubt stop-and-go is bad for an electric like for an engine.

Not full electric, it is an extended range vehicle.

Part of the ENVI program

https://www.chryslerllc.com/en/innov...FQ4NDQodMCSlSg

Basically, you have an electric vehicle for the first 40 miles. Then a small, 2cyl engine kicks in to run a generator which propels the wheels and allows you to travel up to 400 miles on 8-10 gallons of gas.

unfortunately the search tool is not as god-like as you would like to think. Sometimes it doesnt matter how much you search and read about things, because they are not specifically what you were looking for. So dont tell people "search tool" just because you feel like it. It will happen to you when you need something answered. So i guess what im saying is if someone wants to talk about it....let them.

As for the EV, that looks awesome! id love to get one if it would be practical. We will have to see how the break-energy recovery works off-road. Whether or not it would be efficient because there aren't many opportunities for high enough speeds out there to regenerate very much energy it seems. (come from experience with a camry hybrid ahahah)

They've got it at the Detriot show






Yes it's 2wd but it's only because of packaging issues, obviously the battery packs take up a large section of the undercarrage, and are having problems working in a transfercase. They hope to have a 2WD and 4WD version available by the time it hits production.

This is a cool concept, but who comes up with these things? I cant think of one person in the off roading community that has been wishing for an electric wrangler. Why wont jeep listen to the consumers and give us a HEMI wrangler?

probably because what we want, and what the Gov and bean counters tell them we want aren't the same.

That rear pumpkin looks unserviceable. I wonder if the EV will use a D35?? Must be just for the concept/show vehicle??.... Also, the EV will only be 2wd to start. I'm sure it will do just fine off-road....better than most 2wd vehicles. Either way, I'll be waiting a little longer before I pick one up as my new DD.

In general, I love the idea of the Wrangler EV.

Looks like a Ford 9 inch.

I believe the rear end is a Ford 9" of some sort, which the 3rd member containing the gears and differential, is removed from the back side of the housing to service:
http://www.britishv8.org/Triumph/DanMasters/Image15.jpg
And JKs no longer use the D35, ALL of them come standard with the new D44 rear axle. I'm sure the Ford 9" wont make it to production for obvious reasons, but is probably more fore the R&D phase than anything, as the 3rd member can be pulled and regeared on a work bench. The other reason being they are probably still trying to figure out how strong of rear axle they are going to need, given the electric motor has something like 300 lbs/ft torque at 0 RPM. My guess is they may end up using a version of the D60 from the J8 military Jeep.
