So here are my thoughts on the 4xe. First I love the power/instant torque. The biggest question you need to ask yourself is what kind of driving you are going to do. If you are driving around on short commutes and can charge at least once a day you may never burn any gas. My house is 23...
Charging is definitely the key. I only charge at work. This past week I have not been able to fully charge and see a significant decline in fuel economy. This week only averaging 27 mpg. When I fully charge everyday I am getting over 30 and i commute 45 miles a day.
It does show 32A on the charger. I had it plugged up 3 hours this morning and it only charged 87%. It normally will charge in about 2:15 minutes. I am just wondering what could be causing the slow down.
I have recently started charging my 4xe at work. I have noticed it takes longer than 2.5 hours to fully charge with a level 2 charger. It normally charges faster than that. Has anyone else noticed this? I am wondering if its taking longer to charge since its so hot here. Any thoughts?
That was my understanding. I have been reading and watching everything I can find and I guess the only way to find is out for sure is to test it myself. I will pick it up on Wednesday and post my results.
It really would depend on the day. My daily commute to the office is exactly 21 miles one way. If I could charge at home and work (definitely doable) I would never need gas! Its when I have to make road trips that concerns me. I currently drive my Cherokee for work and I avg 30 mpg with it.
I just spent 4 hours in the dealership and 2 test drives in the Rubicon 4xe. I didn't sign the paperwork and more confused about fuel economy than when i got there. Its my understanding its 17.2 Gal tank. The range says 249 miles. At 20 MPG shouldn't I get 340 miles. Can anyone tell me what...
