Two of the group’s brands – Chrysler and Jeep – are already engaged in electrification and deliver pretty strong growth in plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) sales.

In Q4, Stellantis as a whole sold 20,350 PHEVs, which is 5.9% of the total volume and a new quarterly record. Jeep recently noted more than 16,000 PHEV sales thanks to the introduction of the second model – Grand Cherokee 4xe, which joined the Wrangler 4xe. Chrysler offers the plug-in hybrid Pacifica Hybrid minivan.

Plug-in car sales in Q4 2022:

  • Chrysler: 4,046 and 16.2% share
  • Jeep: 16,304 and 11.4% share
  • Stellantis: 20,350 and 5.9% share

US Head of Sales Jeff Kommor said:

“We saw strong demand for our PHEV offerings in the face of industry market conditions that carried across 2021 into 2022, including production constraints and a disruption of parts and materials in general, which adversely affected our overall sales. Sales of the Jeep® Wrangler 4xe increased 46% over last year, and the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, introduced to the market late last year, accounted for 11% of the nameplate’s performance.”

In 2022, Stellantis sold more than 63,000 plug-in hybrids in the US, which is pretty amazing. That’s almost two times more than Toyota.

Plug-in car sales in 2022:

  • Chrysler: 14,392 and 12.8% share
  • Jeep: 48,989 and 7.2% share
  • Stellantis: 63,381 and 4.1% share

As it turns out, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe continues to be the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the US (and in Canada).

“The Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the first-ever electrified Jeep Wrangler, remains America’s best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle, with 43,176 (24%) of total Jeep Wrangler sales in 2022. Sales of the Wrangler 4xe increased 46% year over year, and 22% during the fourth quarter versus the same period last year.  “

Stellantis’ plug-in car sales YTD:

  • Jeep Wrangler 4xe – 43,176
  • Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid – 14,392
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe – at least 5,813
  • Total: 63,381+ (at least 4.1% of the total Stellantis volume)

More plug-in hybrids and the first all-electric models from Stellantis are on the horizon and it seems that the brand will gradually become more and more electrified – maybe even faster than we initially thought.
