Electrified vehicles are in high demand, whether because of concerns about the environment and the adverse effects of carbon emissions — or a desire to pay less money for fuel. Jeep addresses this demand with the Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid. It gets an estimated fuel economy of 57 MPGe. 

The high gas mileage of the Grand Cherokee 4xe can be credited to its efficient hybrid system. It combines a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine with two electric motors and a 400-volt EV battery. Also, the Grand Cherokee 4xe utilizes regenerative braking technology, which captures kinetic energy when the driver applies the brakes.

With the plug-in hybrid system in the Grand Cherokee 4xe, drivers get the best of both worlds. They can enjoy the benefits of emissions-free electric power for short distances but don’t have to worry about running out of battery power. Once the electric power is used up, the Grand Cherokee 4xe can switch to using gasoline. 

The electric range of the Grand Cherokee 4xe is an estimated 25 miles. This is higher than the average daily commute distance for Americans, so for much of the time, the Grand Cherokee 4xe may not even consume fuel.
