The Ram 1500 and Jeep Wrangler with eTorque and the recently announced Fiat 500 and Panda mild hybrid systems are examples of the initial release of their mild-hybrid and short-range BEV technology on high volume vehicles. The Chrysler Pacifica PHEV is America’s first and only hybrid minivan, and its natural drive cycle as a local-use family vehicle benefits from a pure electric range of 32 miles, after which it continues to operate as a full hybrid with a 29/30 mpg city/highway. In 2020 FCA will bring seven new high-voltage EVs to its global lineup, including a number of electrified Jeep vehicles, a second gen Fiat 500 BEV, Fiat Ducato BEV and Maserati’s first hybrid. Through a partnership with Terna, an electricity provider in Italy, FCA will study how EVs interact with the distribution network. An experimental two-way charging infrastructure built within the Mirafiori district will provide energy from cars to the grid when electrical demand is high and return to vehicle charging when the demand is low. It has taken some time for FCA to come around but now that its road map has been announced, it will be interesting to watch the company’s product roll out over the next few years.
