Learn About All-Things EV at Susquehanna Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

In recent years, the automotive industry has become much more inclusive of electric vehicles! Whether it’s a true EV that runs solely on electric power, or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that uses both electric power and a gas-powered engine, these electrified vehicles give you the opportunity to harness renewable energy and drive more efficiently. As the automotive market becomes more and more diverse when it comes to electric vehicles, the infrastructure throughout the country is developing in order to accommodate this new technology. There are thousands of public charging stations across the United States, so that you can keep your car charged up and ready to go. However, you can also install a home charging station in order to charge your vehicle at home. Read on to learn more about home charging stations for your Jeep 4xe vehicle!

Where can I get an At-Home Jeep charging station?

If you’re the proud owner of a Jeep PHEV such as a Wrangler 4xe or Grand Cherokee 4xe, then you’re going to want a Jeep home charging station to match! Luckily, Jeep makes it easy for you to get your hands on a home charging station for your 4xe. You can order your home charging station from the Mopar eStore, right from the comfort of your own home. The Jeep heritage brand has partnered with QMerit to provide you with professional home installation, so that you can get your home charging station up and running without the stress.

How do home EV charging stations work?

Home charging stations are essentially a personal charger that’s ready for you whenever you need it. There are two main versions of charging stations offered by the Jeep brand, one of which is hard-wired into your home’s electrical system, and one which is plugged into a high-voltage outlet. In either case, the charging station itself has Wi-Fi capabilities, so that it can connect to your smartphone, and send you personalized alerts. With wireless connectivity, you can check in on your vehicle’s charging status remotely. Plus, you can receive alerts about when the most cost-effective times of day to charge your vehicle might be. Charging your vehicle overnight at home gives the battery time to charge to 100% without adding unnecessary strain.

How can I care for my Jeep 4xe’s battery?

No matter what kind of Jeep PHEV you drive, it’s important to care for your vehicle’s battery. In general, electric car batteries require very little maintenance, and can last for up to 20 years! There are many simple ways to take care of your 4xe’s battery, and home charging stations can really come in handy for this reason. For example, home charging stations allow you to charge your battery slowly over a long period of time. When you’re on the go, it’s best to keep your battery between 20-80%. However, when you have a home charging station, you can allow your battery to reach 100%. Other ways to keep your battery protected are to keep it away from the elements. This includes avoiding extreme heat and cold, and keeping your car covered inside a garage. 

What are the Jeep 4xe Vehicles?

Now that we’ve described the Jeep home charging station, it’s time to go into more detail about the Jeep PHEVs themselves! Currently, there are two models on the market, the Wrangler 4xe and the Grand Cherokee 4xe. In terms of appearance, both vehicles have the same design as their gas-powered counterparts. However, they feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with twin electric motors, and a rechargeable battery pack. The Wrangler 4xe is capable of fording up to 33.1 inches of water, while the Grand Cherokee 4xe boasts a 6,000-pound maximum towing capacity. The Wrangler 4xe features the classic removable roof and doors, and the Grand Cherokee offers luxurious features like Nappa leather upholstery, and a 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment touchscreen.
