Are Fredericksburg Jeep Lovers ready for a little charge?

The Electric Powered Jeep“This concept Jeep EV Wrangler Unlimited gets a battery pack, an electronics controller, and a 268 HP electric motor with 295 lb-ft of torque, while the big gas engine is subtracted in favour of a fuel-sipping generator. The knee-jerk reaction to an electrically motivated Jeep might be to recoil in horror at the thought, but think about it for a second — maximum torque at zero RPM, a power source unaffected by orientation, and no engine noise to get in the way of your spotter’s directions. Okay, the likelihood of hitting the Rubicon Trail with this baby is small, but the idea isn’t that far out.”

Who knows?  Maybe one day……
