UPDATE: Jeep® Wrangler 4xe Risk Of Battery Fire Recall

A week ago, we saw Stellantis (FCA US, LLC) issue a recall for a risk of a battery pack fire for the 2021 to 2023 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited 4xe (JL) plug-in hybrid (PHEV). However, we are now learning more details about those 32,125 vehicles in the United States, an estimated 3,856 in Canada, and 9,249 … (read full article...)

Easiest answer to end these battery fires in these electric cars. Don’t make them. Stick with ICE vehicles!!!

This latest confidence builder for electric vehicles has arrived just at the right time, thanks Jeep, as the global community awakens to the environmentalist hoax and the rejection rate for electric vehicles is growing by the minute. Yes sir, great timing Jeep or should we say.....another nail in the coffin?

You people do know the Wrangler 4Xe is a hybrid, right? Hybrids are the hottest (bad choice of words, sorry) items on the market. The number of Jeep fires for this recall is tiny and it looks like they found a fix. How many other hybrids are on the road without having problems? While pure battery electric vehicles collect dust on dealers' lots, there are months-long waiting lists for new hybrids. The top selling sedan in the US market, the Toyota Camry, will only be available as a hybrid next spring. Toyota and Honda are massively increasing their manufacturing and marketing of hybrids. Is it wrong for Stellantis to join this party?

The thirteen states which adopted the CARB mandates have close to half of the US population. The zero emissions mandates still stand, and the federal EPA is demanding 50% of passenger vehicles sold to be battery electric. Auto dealers are angry enough with the EV push to send a letter to the White House with nearly 4,000 dealers signing on. They are the monkey in the middle who are being forced to sell something people don't want. The countries who are saying enough to this socialist dystopia are mostly in Eastern Europe. They have had recent experience with Marxism. We in the United States are new to this authoritarian regime game and will put up with it much longer.

Even if the zero emissions mandates disappeared overnight, we as a country will still have to deal with our inadequate energy grid and generating capacity, along with resource management and security challenges. A military contractor recognized the future strategic energy resource dilemma over sixty years ago and initiated research into electric hybrid vehicles. We need to conserve. The current environmental hoax is only to enrich the coffers of a certain Asian country with a tight grip on the world's lithium supply. They have a lot of our elite institutions in their pocket, such as the media, politicians and research universities.

If the United States is ever to be truly independent again we must develop and conserve our energy resources. It will require many solutions, there is no one panacea. Hybrids and plugin hybrids are some of those solutions. Even fully battery electric vehicles will be part of our future, but not in a one size fits all package.
