AMP to Display Jeep Grand Cherokee EV at Detroit Auto Show

By Jason Davis | December 29, 2011
Intrigued by the idea of owning an electric vehicle, but without the bubbly ECO shape? AMP Electric builds EV’s based on existing OEM (original equipment, manufacturer) vehicles, and next month, the Ohio-based company will display its newest—the Jeep Grand Cherokee EV—at the Detroit Auto Show. AMP says the Jeep Grand Cherokee EV will have an 80-100-mile range on a single charge from its 37.6 kWh lithium-ion phosphate battery. Best of all, AMP says it has compromised none of the existing seating or cargo capacity, leaving you with an emissions-less Grand Cherokee. "Beginning with a world class vehicle, and adding AMP's electrification results in an EV that offers everything SUV customers expect: smooth powerful performance, zero emissions and up to a 100-mile range," said Jim Taylor, AMP Chief Executive Officer. Like AMP’s Mercedes-Benz ML350 EV, expect the Grand Cherokee EV to reach freeway speeds in under 10 seconds and top out at a governed 90 mph. Additional pricing, availability, and details will be released by AMP next month in Detroit.
