Report: Jeep is adamant about a hybridized model, questions tech durability

Australia’s Drive.com reports that Jeep is adamant about producing a hybridized model. Though first, the brand needs to ensure that hybrid technology can withstand the abuse of serious off-roading. Land Rover is currently putting this to the test with their experimental Defender EV fleet, which packs even more technology.

Drive spoke with Chrysler’s Asia-Pacific product planning manager, Steve Bartoli, citing the instant torque and power delivery of electric motors, which could prove to be popular amongst the enthusiasts. That said, some research and development is still in the process.

Right now however, concerns over added price and the reliability of battery packs and electric motors are both being questioned and perhaps, put to the test.
