At 4:40 he says 4xe’s are sold out for the rest of the year. I ordered ours last week - ugh. If anyone finds out the impact to delivery of recently placed orders, please share with the group.

That means all of their builds are allocated. Dealers will still get some if they ordered them for stock. There wont be many though.

It could also mean they are done building 2021 model years. Ordering for 2022 should be starting soon.

I'm with Aldo. I think he was talking about Model Year not calendar year.
That makes sense, and I agree. What I worry about is that an order placed right before the end of production gets delayed for some reason. Hopefully they have outstanding inventory control, and didn’t trust Jimmy doing an eyeball count of the number of batteries left in the stack.

I was going to hold out for a ‘22 but the dealer said Jeep told them it would be late fall before anything would show up. In the end, it’s kinda fun going through the order process. It reminds me of the old days of the internet and slowly waiting for the photos to load line by line. The anticipation of what was coming next was part of the excitement!

FCA would be thrilled to have as strong demand for a plug-in hybrid as there seems to be for 4Xe; it helps them meet their CAFE requirements and avoid paying penalties. With the launch of 392, FCA is going to need all the help it can get meeting its CAFE numbers.

I don’t see FCA holding back on 4Xe production if it can help it.

If Stellantis is saying that they are sold out, my bet would be that you can not order one at this time. You would need to wait for the 2022 order books to come open.

This ☝. They phrase things in ways that create hype and will help sales. Model year is almost done and 22s will be produced soon. If they're "sold out" people will be less likely to haggle, might go and buy now when they were on the fence. 2022 model year is only a couple months away.

While I am thrilled and excited with my 4xe order, I wonder how much of the success is Jeep just blowing the things out with lease specials. I mean, my $60k 4xe is leasing at $20/mo more than my $45k Sport. Some of that is the extra money from the tax credit, but some of that is a hefty discount from Jeep. And if Jeep vastly improves the 4xe over the next 3 years (doubles electric range, etc) the residual value on my Jeep might be a joke with FCA left holding the bag. We’ll see.

When I was working in automotive, July 4 week was the annual shutdown for model year re-tooling. Don't know what Covid impact is or if that has changed, but I do remember some good times at Jobbie Nooner after changeover was done. I'd say you're looking at a '22 model on future orders.

There's a pretty big thread of folks waiting for the 2022 Model Year info/updates in the build/order subforum.

The general consensus based on comments/notes from various volume dealers and other sources is that MY 2022 order banks will open ~Sept/Oct, with builds starting 12/6 or 12/7.
