As technology continues to improve, so too does the electric vehicle. Once, EVs were considered the green alternative to gas-guzzling engines. However, manufacturers didn’t put much effort into style and substance. As a result, the first electric vehicles were almost Spartan in features, lagged in performance, and left a lot desired in terms of stylish appearance.
Oh, how things change. Manufacturers took notice of consumer wishes, and as a result, today’s electric vehicles offer drivers an abundance of options to elevate their comfort. In addition, cutting-edge technology keeps you connected and the latest driver-assist systems keep you safe. Improved battery technology and electric motors have put the EV squarely in the driver’s seat. Here’s how it all happened.
You can enjoy many benefits by switching to an electric vehicle. However, we find that every EV owner has their favorites.
You don’t need to stop for gas if you drive an electric car, truck, or SUV. As a result, you save money. In addition, purchasing electricity costs less than gas as a general rule. However, gas prices fluctuate while electricity rates traditionally remain static and under control. As a result, you’ll never be a slave to high gas prices again.
Even hybrid electric vehicles offer savings at the pump. Most modern hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles can comfortably achieve 30 to 50 miles on electric-only power. That’s less than most Americans face in a daily commute, which allows many new HEV and PHEV owners to be comfortable in making the switch.
Electric vehicles don’t produce byproducts of fuel combustion. So instead, you can quietly drive your car, knowing you aren’t harming the environment or your community.
The federal government wants us to go green. They offer tax incentives for purchasing a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or electric vehicle to encourage us. Many states provide their own incentives. You can save thousands of dollars when you make the switch.
Charging your vehicle at home costs money. We know this. However, many restaurants, shopping centers, and workplaces have started offering EV charging stations. If your employer has free charging, imagine the impact on your budget. In addition, many manufacturers are offering free charging packages to incentivize buyers further.
The internal combustion engine has over 2,000 moving parts. An electric vehicle powertrain has around 20 parts. As a result, you have far fewer parts to maintain on an electric vehicle than on a traditional gas-powered car. It isn’t only maintaining but replacing those parts as they break down.
You won’t need oil changes, transmission fluid flushes, spark plug replacements, or regular repairs. Instead, you charge your battery and drive on.
One of the most popular family vehicles on the market, the Chrysler Pacifica comes in a hybrid powertrain. As a result, you get the confidence of Chrysler’s 3.6-liter V-6 engine mated to a continuously variable transmission that pairs with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery. This powertrain rates at an impressive 260 horsepower. In electric-only mode, you can drive up to 32 miles. Add in the gas powertrain, and your driving range reaches 520 miles.
In addition, you get all the features your whole family will love. Mom and dad love the largest touch-screen in its class, powered by the Uconnect 5 system. Your infotainment technology includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth streaming. Now you can access your favorite apps, make calls, get navigation information, and more hands-free using voice commands.
The Pacifica comes with a capable front-wheel-drive system. You can upgrade to all-wheel drive for even more traction and control. Chrysler’s all-wheel-drive system automatically transfers up to 100% power to the rear wheels or any wheels with the most traction. This segment-first system lets you confidently drive over various road surfaces and weather conditions.
Adventure seekers love Jeep Wranglers for their go-anywhere capability. Now, Jeep offers the Wrangler a plug-in hybrid powertrain in the Wrangler 4xe. Powered by a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder turbocharged PHEV engine paired with two electric motors and a 17-kilowatt lithium-ion battery, the 4xe produces an impressive 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
The torque created by the electric motors improves rock crawling off the road and delivers powerful speed off the line. Combine that power with one of three legendary Jeep four-wheel-drive systems, and you have efficient go-anywhere capability. In addition, the 4xe comes with the industry’s first front and rear-locking differentials on a PHEV.
Wrangler’s 4xe can travel 21 miles in all-electric mode and boasts a total combined driving range of 370 miles before needing fuel and a recharge. In addition, an available Level II charger recharges up to six times faster, getting you back on the road in minutes. And Jeep has installed solar-powered charging stations on key trails throughout the U.S.
The all-new Grand Cherokee 4xe takes many of the same cues from the Wrangler 4xe, only putting it in the traditional SUV design versus the Wrangler’s open-air concept. You get the same 2.0-liter turbo PHEV engine, dual electric motors, and a water-sealed battery pack. This powertrain produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque but goes further than the Wrangler 4xe. The Grand Cherokee 4xe can drive 25 miles in all-electric mode and 470 miles using gas and electric power.
Jeep offers the latest in-vehicle tech running through a 10.1-inch touch screen. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth technology come standard, enabling hands-free operation of all your infotainment systems. In addition, the Grand Cherokee adds a first-in-class passenger touch screen.
