The other day, the 2022 Women’s World Car of the Year announced its winners. There are six of them, including the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe that won in the 4×4 category.
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe’s electric-only range reaches 21 miles/35 km. The company says it is Jeep’s most capable and eco-friendly vehicle, almost silent, by the way. Ladies have pleased the combination of off-road driving with ‘green’ propulsion, as well as a quite pleasant interior.
The advanced 375-hp hybrid powertrain comprises a high-tech, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine with two electric motors and a high-voltage 14-kWh battery pack, plus the TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission.
