Everything You Need To Know About Charging Your Jeep eSUV
With two existing and two upcoming electric vehicle models, Jeep is slowly carving its niche in delivering some of the market’s most efficient, power-packed and good-looking electric vehicles. The Wrangler 4xe and Grand Cherokee 4xe have been among Jeep’s first electric SUVs, which grab the attention of onlookers with their unique off-road capabilities, adventure-ready design, ultra-premium comfort and superior all-electric driving range. Moreover, these electric vehicles also let you customize your rides with the available EV drive modes to suit different road and driving conditions. You can easily charge the electric SUVs at home or on the go to get an all-electric range of up to 42 km (varies depending on the model). In addition, these eSUVs are also available with two levels of charging for convenient everyday driving or when you need some extra speed.

How Charging Works in Jeep Electric SUVs
It’s perfect for your everyday commute as it uses the standard 120V electric outlet (available in most households and businesses) to fully charge the vehicle in approximately 12 hours. All you need to do is use the included 115V charging cable and plug it into any standard three-prong outlet. This works perfectly well when you want to charge your Jeep eSUV at home overnight to prepare for next-day adventures. You can also set a charging schedule to automatically charge your vehicle when plugged in via the Uconnect Hybrid Pages.
This is mostly available at commercial charging stations or with specialized in-home installation, as it fully charges the vehicle in approximately 2 hours — preparing you for a speedy on-road adventure. You can use the 240V Level II charger to top up the battery on the go, especially when aiming at zero emissions on longer distances.
Regenerative Braking Technology
Regenerative braking is an advanced technology that captures kinetic energy generated through braking and converts it into electricity to power the vehicle’s battery. Regenerative braking works as an additional environmentally friendly source of power for the engine. Driving your Jeep eSUV with regenerative braking technology also helps in reducing fuel consumption.
