We’re testing the electric off-roader at the Easter 2022 Jeep Safari
Every year, off-roaders and brand loyalists travel to Moab, Utah for the Easter Jeep Safari. The event, which spans two weekends in the spring, offers guided off-road rides through the beautiful landscapes of nearby national parks. It also gives Jeep the opportunity to showcase its latest concept vehicles, giving us a glimpse of what’s in store for the future.
This year, Dan Edmunds drove a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, a plug-in hybrid variant of the popular midsize SUV. He’s also driven the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe plug-in hybrid, the all-electric Magneto 2.0 concept and a few other nifty vehicles.
Plug-in hybrids show how you can still have the usual Jeep experience in a wide-open landscape without range anxiety. You don’t have to worry about what happens after a power outage because the gas engine keeps you going. On the other hand, the Magneto 2.0 concept shows that Jeep clearly thinks an all-electric Wrangler with sufficient range is a future possibility.
Why would you want an all-electric off-roader? The concept may seem strange at first, but the benefits are many: torque, quiet operation and the ability to use regenerative braking not only to recuperate energy, but also to ease the vehicle over ledges and downhill grades. in complete control.
