ZF to provide 8-speed plug-in hybrid transmission for new Jeep Wrangler 4xe PHEV

Fiat Chrysler will use ZF Friedrichshafen’s 8-speed plug-in hybrid transmission in the new Jeep Wrangler 4xe. The latest version of ZF’s 8-speed features a compact electric motor with a peak output of up to 100 kilowatts and 245 Newton-meters of torque.

ZF produces a full range of driveline technologies. The company recently affirmed its commitment to electric mobility by announcing that it will no longer invest in automatic transmissions that are not hybrid-ready.

Since 2009, ZF has produced approximately 22.5 million 8-speed transmissions for customers around the world. Production of the 8-speed plug-in is currently underway at ZF’s production facility in Saarbrücken, Germany.

“The Jeep Wrangler is an iconic vehicle, and to be part of the first plug-in Wrangler is symbolic of where the industry and ZF are headed,” said Stephan von Schuckmann, Head of ZF’s Car Powertrain Technology Division. “We believe plug-in-technology is a good solution for customers in the near-to-midterm, and we are committed to mobility that generates considerably less CO2, with the long-term goal of zero emissions.”
