Electric Jeep Grand Cherokee

| January 13, 2012 |

If you’re looking for a good, solid four-by-four you can’t go wrong with a Jeep. This long standing brand just screams quality, and pretty soon it’ll be an electronic brand. Well, at least one of its Jeeps will be. The AMP Jeep Grand Cherokee will be 100% electrically powered.

When it’s released it’ll have a 37.6 kWh lithium ion phosphate battery and a couple of Remi electric motors. You’ll be able to travel up to 100 miles on a full charge, which is alright for a few trips back and forth to work. As soon as there are more electric charging stations across the country this’ll be a fairly decent mode of transport.

The electric Cherokee has all of the cargo space of your average Jeep, but unfortunately it doesn’t have the same off road handling options. You don’t have to be worried about it looking like some of those awful hybrids though, the only distinguishing feature on the Cherokee is 100% Electric badge.

The Electric Jeep Grand Cherokee isn’t available yet, but will be revealed at the North American International Auto Show. A price hasn’t been stated just yet, but can expect to pay anything between $50,000 (£35,000) and $90,000 (£60,000). OK so it won’t be cheap, but it’ll reduce all of those pesky emissions that are probably being produced by your current Jeep.

There are tax incentives available to you too, and honestly can you put a price on a cleaner environment?
