The Mopar division of Auburn Hills’ Stellantis has introduced new Wi-Fi-capable, Level 2 (240-volt) charging units for Jeep 4xe and Chrysler Pacifica.
Available in plug-in or hardwired versions that supply 32 amps/7.7kW (maximum) of power, the new charging units provide a full charge in just over two hours, up to six times faster than standard Level 1 (120-volt) chargers. In addition, new Wi-Fi connectivity gives customers the ability to monitor and control charging via a mobile app and web portal, saving time and money.
“Our new, factory-backed, at-home, Level 2, plug-in charging units offer a quick, seamless charging solution for Jeep 4xe and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid owners,” says Mark Bosanac, North America vice president for Mopar service, parts, and customer care. “At Mopar, we’ll continue to enhance the customer experience and expand our electric-vehicle portfolio of accessories.”
Each new charging unit is Energy Star-certified and smart-grid optimized for a balance between availability, efficiency, and cost to help customers reduce energy costs by charging at low-rate times and participate in energy credit programs where available.
Portable, lightweight, lockable, and weatherproof for indoor/outdoor charging, each unit is universally compatible and backed by a three-year warranty. U.S manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $599. New charging units may be ordered with a Jeep or Chrysler-branded faceplate.
Mopar is teaming with the installation service company Qmerit to offer convenient installation of Level 2 chargers within the United States. Qmerit-certified installers are licensed, insured, and screened to meet exacting standards and can offer service if there is ever a need.
