    According to Jeep brand boss, Mike Manley, hybrid powertrains are being considered for future Wranglers due to the strong initial torque and crawl ratios.

    He also noted that the 3 priorities for the JL Wrangler were:

    1. Preserving the look
    2. On road dynamics
    3. Better fuel efficiency

    Save your Bitcoin money and invest in bigger batteries, or more powerful and fuel efficient small engines, or a JL turn signal relocation kit.

    Even at an insane unheard of 40% efficiency for non-transparent solar panel JL roof, your 4hr hike would only net you about 2.5 mile range on pavement, let alone trail range which would likely be closer to a mile.
