US: Jeep Wrangler 4xe Remains The Top PHEV In Q2 2022

Stellantis reports 408,521 vehicle sales in the US during the second quarter of 2022, which is 16% less than a year ago. Also, year-to-date sales are lower than in 2021: 813,742 (down 15%).

However, Stellantis can show some interesting results in the plug-in segment, as the company delivered some 15,000 plug-in hybrids (if not more), during the quarter.

The Jeep Wrangler 4xe in particular noted 10,861, which makes it the top plug-in hybrid model in the country. It means also that every fifth new Jeep Wrangler is a PHEV right now.

The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid (PHEV) is also relatively strong with 4,095 units (13% of all Chrysler Pacifica).

Stellantis does not provide numbers for all its plug-in models, but the two above alone translate into 14,956 and 3.7% of the total volume. For reference, Toyota/Lexus sold over 9,000 plug-ins, General Motors over 7,000 BEVs, while Ford sold over 4,000 BEVs (plus an undisclosed number of PHEVs).

Stellantis’ plug-in vehicle sales in Q2 2022:

  • Jeep Wrangler 4xe – 10,861
    (20% of total Jeep Wrangler and 5.8% of Jeep sales)
  • Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid – 4,095
    (13% of total Chrysler Pacifica and 11% of Chrysler sales)
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe – N/A
  • Total: 14,956+ (over 3.7% of the total Stellantis volume)

So far this year, Stellantis sold more than 27,000 plug-in hybrids in the US:

Stellantis’ plug-in vehicle sales YTD:

  • Jeep Wrangler 4xe – 19,207
  • Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid – 8,259
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe – N/A
  • Total: 27,466+

Only time will tell how well Stellantis’ electrification will pay off, but for now, it seems that the PHEV volume is not bad. The first all-electric models are coming later this decade.
