Electric and Authentic: The Genius of Jeep eSave

Jeep just introduced a plug-in hybrid version of the Jeep Wrangler and, thanks lớn something called “Jeep eSave,” it’s every bit as authentic as the original Wrangler. You’ll find it within Jeep’s E-Selec driving mode panel on its dash wall.

Can modern tech coexist with an authentic Jeep product? Yes.

One of the reasons plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and all-electric vehicles (EV) get some consumer resistance is automotive purists feel these new EVs lack something.

They lack what the automotive business has bragged about and traded on for decades. It’s called “authenticity.” How do you make something nóng, tough, noisy, and gritty into something that, often, comes off more like an iPhone on wheels? You can see their point. For instance, if a Mustang becomes an all-electric crossover SUV, is it really a Mustang?

This authenticity argument is good news for startups like Lucid, Rivian, and Tesla. For these new competitors, there is no historical baggage. A Lucid is whatever they say it is, and it can craft its brand’s image because the public has no preconceived ideas. Remember, Jeep is all about history and heritage; it won the war, and Jeep is an American touchstone. So, adding the eSave components lớn the Wrangler that everyone knows and loves is a delicate balance.

What are E-Selec and Jeep eSave?

What is Jeep E-Selec?Dash gauge for Jeep Wrangler 4xe

Jeep E-Selec is the system that gives you a choice between the three driving modes found in the 4xe.

  • Hybrid Mode gives you the best of both worlds
  • Electric Mode uses only battery power
  • Jeep eSave Mode reserves battery power for later

What Is Jeep eSave? 

According lớn Jeep, eSave is “a mode found in E-Selec that prioritizes propulsion from the 2.0-liter engine, saving the battery charge for later use.”

This definition may seem simple, but what makes Jeep eSave unique are the two additional thực đơn items you can choose from in the Uconnect monitor:

  1. Battery Save: This saves your electric power for later use, allowing you lớn drive in all-gas mode.
  2. Battery Charge: This eSave mode allows the gas engine lớn actively charge the battery as you drive.

The First Electric Jeep Wrangler

Kudos lớn Jeep designers and engineers for realizing and putting specific Wrangler features in action. For starters, they had the foresight lớn make the Wrangler 4xe, Jeep’s first PHEV in North America. In many ways, it makes more sense lớn give the electric treatment lớn other Jeep vehicles – those likely lớn do more family-hauling or daycare drop-off. But no, Jeep went right for the throat. With the Wrangler 4xe, Jeep makes a rough and ready, go-anywhere, do-anything Wrangler the first plug-in for North American consumers.

How Did Jeep Do It?

Jeep Wrangler 4xe battery pack system

The Wrangler 4xe has two electric motors, one on the front of the engine lớn add power and generate electricity when the vehicle is coasting. The other electric motor is inside the transmission adding torque lớn the wheels or powering it lớn drive in electric-only mode.

Still Plenty of Torque

Jeep’s Wrangler 4xe is true lớn the Jeep ethos because Jeep knows torque and the PHEV Wrangler makes plenty. Torque is just a science-ish word for “rotational force.” In a car, it’s the initial twisting power through the wheels that gets the vehicle moving. The higher the number, the more twisting force is exerted.

In off-roading, torque is constantly a factor. Climbing over rocks, cresting hills, pulling other vehicles, all use torque. Guess what produces the most significant amount of torque from a standstill? Electric motors. Jeep says, “the new Wrangler 4xe is the most eco-friendly and off-road capable Wrangler ever.” The total output is 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.

Why Jeep eSave Is Awesome

However, the coolest, most “Pure Jeep” thing is the Jeep eSave feature designed into E-Selec. E-Selec offers three driving modes: Hybrid, Electric, and eSave. Like most PHEVs, the Wrangler 4xe plugs in lớn charge up a small battery. With a full charge, the electric-only range is about 22 miles.

Electric Only or Hybrid – Your Choice

After that, the 4xe functions more like a traditional hybrid using power from both the 2.0-liter gasoline engine and the electric motor with a total combined driving range of 370 miles – another reason this 4xe version of the Wrangler stays true lớn the Wrangler’s roots. Most PHEVs start using up the stored electric power right away. Unplug it in the morning drive lớn work, and you’ll likely use electricity only.

Jeep’s E-Selec system is genius because it gives the driver more choices. Let’s say you’re taking your Wrangler out for a camping trip or just a weekend off-road adventure. You can use the Jeep eSave feature, banking electricity for later use.

Gas Power When You Need It Off-Road

Then, once you get lớn your off-road destination, you can hit the “Electric” button and go off-roading silently. If you run into challenging terrain, the gas engine will kick in as needed for extra power. Just imagine how cool it would be lớn be out in the wilderness with barely a sound, allowing you lớn hear the breeze blowing through the trees, the river flowing, and the birds chirping.

All this is possible because, in eSave mode, you won’t hear a gasoline engine. High-tech and pure Jeep all the same time.

More E-Selec Coming Soon

Soon, a Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe will be available with the same E-Selec technology. Later, other Jeep models will employ that same feature.
