For anyone who was holding off on buying an electric Jeep for fear of running out of juice while off-roading, you may want to dust off your wallet. Jeep has announced that they are building a network of charging stations for their 4xe vehicles, to be located at off-road trailheads around the United States.

The Jeep 4xe Charging Network is to be built over the next 12 months at Jeep Badge of Honor off-road trailheads. The stations will all be either solar-powered or plugged directly into their respective power grids. Jeep is building the network in collaboration with Electrify America, and charging will be free for Jeep 4xe owners via a custom mobile app. The stations will offer Level 2 (240-volt) charging, which will fully recharge a Wrangler 4xe in about two hours, delivering 21 miles of electric range. Jeep plans on opening the first three charging stations this spring at Moab, Utah; Big Bear, California; and, fittingly, at the Rubicon Trail in Pollock Pines, California. Additional sites are expected to be operational by the end of 2021, but Jeep hasn’t said where those will be located just yet.
