Extra Energy To Electrify The Path

Extra Energy To Electrify The Path


Final yr, Jeep took the Easter Jeep Safari crowd abruptly with the disclosing of the all-electric Wrangler Magneto Idea. 

The off-road idea demonstrated {that a} battery-electric propulsion system could be true to the Wrangler’s heritage of off-road functionality. Now, Jeep has taken issues up a notch with the Wrangler Magneto 2.0 Idea, which it describes as a terrain-dominating off-roader designed to take driver and passengers far off the overwhelmed path.

In comparison with its predecessor, the Magneto 2.0 is way more highly effective, with its front-mounted custom-built axial flux electrical motor producing 625 horsepower and as much as 850 lb-ft (1,151 Nm) of peak torque to the wheels—greater than triple the torque output of final yr’s idea.

Jeep says that peak amperage within the propulsion system has greater than doubled to 600 amps, with a brand new electrical powertrain calibration sustaining the height amperage for as much as 10 seconds. This allows the Magneto 2.0 to rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 2 seconds.

Similar to the unique Magneto, the two.0 additionally options 4 lithium-ion battery packs distributed all through the chassis for weight steadiness. They’ve a mixed capability of 70 kWh and run an 800-volt system.

One other vital ingredient carried away from final yr’s automobile is the six-speed handbook transmission, though the primary gear ratio within the handbook transmission is modified from 5.13 to three.36. Mixed with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon’s Rock-Trac switch case, the Magneto 2.0 is claimed to display unequaled rock-crawling functionality with its prompt on-demand torque supply.

The car additionally includes a driver-selectable most regeneration perform added to the propulsion system for a real “one-pedal” driving expertise. Lastly, the electrical powertrain features a race car-derived inverter that converts DC energy to AC for the high-tech motor that operates at as much as 5,250 rpm.

Whereas based mostly on the two-door Wrangler physique model, the Magneto 2.0 has a 12-inch longer wheelbase to make room for extra powertrain parts. The prolonged wheelbase offers the car related proportions to the “LJ” Wrangler Limitless from 2004-06.

Off-road parts embrace a {custom} 3-inch carry equipment, 40-inch off-road tires mounted on 20-inch wheels, Dynatrac 60 Professional-Rock entrance axle and an enormous Professional-Rock Dynatrac 80 rear axle with a 5.38 ratio and lockers for each axles, {custom} driveshaft, and an off-road suspension.

On the styling entrance, the Jeep Wrangler Magneto 2.0 brings {custom} light-weight bumpers, carbon-fiber wheel flares, Surf Blue paint, {custom} carbon-fiber B-pillar, {custom} bikini high, and a carbon-fiber hood with blue-tinted, clear window that provides a glimpse on the energy unit beneath.
