I was thinking more of a Compass. What would make sense is a hybrid Patriot to compete with the Ford Escape hybrid.

daggo66 I could have said it all in 3 letters, but that would have gotten me in trouble.

The only reason I can imagine why they would choose a Jeep as the platform for an EV would be to effectively handle the weight of the batteries. A Jeep is considered by many to be rugged and masculine. Considering present day technology, an electric Jeep would be considered somewhat less than that by many. How's that for PC?
I used less words in my drunken stupor last night. But like you said, it's PC!

Codeman911 My bad. I had some beers last night and that's how I feel about a vehicle that you have to plug in next to your kids big wheel in the garage. Anyways an electric vehicle isn't worth the extra price. Plus they are harder on the environment than a Hummer.

thaduke2003 The way I think about it is this- electric motors produce torque at ZERO RPM, and a lot of it. So it'd be a sick rock crawler, if they tune it right.
If they do it wrong, mall crawler deluxe- paint it pink and slap a Power Wheels decal on it- Mark W.

njatrtljp I think that Jeep would be a great idea. IF they could keep the Jeep as functional as it is now. I would love a Jeep that gets better mileage.

i am not a fan of that particular jeep idea, but there's no reason to resort to name calling because it is a jeep you don't like. if you want to make fun of the jeep itself then by all means have at it, but all this guy did was ask a question.

2010 Wrangler Unlimited EV

anyone know the msrp and release date of the 2010 Wrangler Unlimited Electric Vehicle? I have seen it at a car show and it looks pretty sharp, although it's more of an SUV than an off roader. Any of your thoughts or information about this car would be greatly appreciated.
