Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe

If you wish to reduce your carbon footprint while feeling like you can always fall back on the reassurance of having a heat engine when needed, then the Grand Cherokee 4xe is an excellent plug-in hybrid.

Powered by a 17 kWh battery and a 2.0 L turbocharged engine, it will offer you a generous 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft. maximum torque. Towing capacity is particularly impressive and interesting for outdoor activity lovers, as it reaches up to 6,000 pounds; the same can be said about the generous 1,027 liters of cargo space.

In hybrid mode, average fuel consumption is only 4.1 L/100 km; 100 % electric mode will also allow you to drive up to 42 km without a drop of fuel. Rest assured, as no compromises have been made in terms of performance: with the Jeep all-wheel drive system, you can head out in full confidence on all types of terrain, and even in water beds that are up to 24- inches deep, thanks to the waterproof battery!

The Grand Cherokee will not only allow you to indulge in adventure, you will also be bathed in luxury. Inside, leather upholstery is standard offered, including heated front and rear seats, as well as ventilated front seats. A 2- panel panoramic sunroof completes the lot, giving you the best possible view over all of your surroundings.

Your new Jeep Grand Cherokee is waiting for you in the greater Montreal area!

Hyundai Ioniq 5

This new SUV offered by the Korean manufacturer is easily recognizable amongst many, thanks to a unique design with bold lines. Its look is extremely attractive, but so is its price, beginning under the $ 50,000 mark! This, no matter the version, allows it to become eligible for government incentives, meaning your bill will be much more interesting as well.

This is certainly one of the best electric SUVs on the market, also offering you numerous options, according on your needs. The base version –the Essential- is equipped with a 58 kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor with 168 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. maximum torque.

Then, the Preferred version can welcome a 77.4 kWh battery offering 225 horsepower. All-wheel drive? It is also part of the lot for added stability and power; with two motors, you will have access to 320 horsepower and 446 lb-ft. maximum torque!

Charging times are also one of its strong points: on a 350 kW charging station, you will need as little as 17 minutes to charge your battery. With the 77.4 kWh battery, electric range reaches up to 480 km!

Ford Mustang Mach-E

When it arrived on the market, the Ford Mustang Mach-E got everyone’s attention with its legendary name. Far beyond the name or the sporty look though, it has shown that an electric SUV can be just as enjoyable to drive –if not more- than a regular fuel vehicle. It also provides an extremely stable driving experience.

Ford Mustang Mach-E 2022

There are four available versions:

  • Select
  • Premium
  • California Route 1
  • GT Performance

For 2022, the battery goes from 68 to 70 kWh and the one for prolonged range jumps from 88 to 91 kWh. This means that when it comes to electric range, numbers also increase, and reach up to 505 km with the California Route 1, the perfect roadster! It goes down just a little, to 502 km, when equipped with all-wheel drive.

For a more impressive electric range, the Premium version offers a prolonged range that can also reach up to 488 km or 446 km, depending on selected drivetrain. As for power, it also depends on selected version and drivetrain. Base versions offer 265 horsepower (290 for the California) and 317 lb-ft. max. torque; with all-wheel drive cavalry reaches up to 346 horsepower.

If you are looking for even more adrenaline, the GT Performance version will have you glued to your seat with 480 horsepower and 634 lb-ft. maximum torque!

The Mustang Mach-E is sporty both in terms of style and powertrain; but it also offers a versatile interior with loads of technologies, thanks to which it was awarded the title of “best electric SUV” according to The Car Guide.

Mazda MX-30

Just like the Hyundai Ioniq 5, the first electric Mazda allows you to be eligible for federal and provincial incentives. Inspired by Kodo design, the vehicle shares many traits in common with other Mazda models, with a few exceptions, like a coupe style roof and half rear doors.

What makes it one of the best electric SUVs is the fact that the environmentally friendly aspect takes center stage and is not only limited to the powertrain: there are also several durable materials and recycled materials found throughout the interior! This makes a clear statement as to how Mazda approaches the question of eco-friendly vehicles.

The powertrain is complete with a 35.5 kWh battery which allows it 143 horsepower and 200 lb-ft. maximum torque. Charging is quick: with a domestic 240 V plug, you can go from 20 to 80 % charge in as little as 2.83 hours. With public charging stations (level 3), you can reach the same in just 36 minutes!

You can expect a pleasant and remarkably quiet driving experience at the wheel of this Mazda utility vehicle.

Jeep Wrangler 4xe

If you are looking for a formidable off-road giant that also allows you to save on fuel, then the Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the perfect vehicle for you.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe 2022

It is equipped with the same powertrain as the Grand Cherokee 4xe and is just as powerful as well. It will provide you with the same off-road skills you have come to expect from the legendary model. The removable door and roof panels are definitely part of the 4x4’s strong points, and this electric version is no exception.

Amongst other things, the 100 % electric range will allow you to reach up to 35 km without any carbon emissions. In hybrid mode, combined consumption numbers are only 4.8 L/100 km. With a simple 240 V plug, you will need just 2.4 hours to charge battery fully.

The Wrangler has maintained its classic lines and added a few blue accents here and there, to underline its more environmentally friendly personality.
