“If You Like Your Jeep, You’ll Be Able to Drive Your Jeep”

If you haven’t read it yet, check out this excellent recent piece from The Wall Street Journal, on the implications of California’s Electric Vehicle (EV) mandate on the traditional gas-powered vehicles.

As we touched on previously here, Stellantis, the parent company of Chrysler and the maker of Jeeps, is already changing its distribution strategy to comply with California’s ridiculous emissions regulations. It recently cautioned that it might allocate fewer conventional gasoline engine vehicles to states that have embraced California’s standards, including New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Virginia among others.

For off roaders in particular, the EV mandates are going to sting. Sure, you may be able to continue driving a Jeep, but as Stellantis warns it will likely be an EV with a price tag at least $20,000 more than current gas-powered models. Oh, and be sure to pack that gas-powered generator and charger because, as far as we know, the EV pushers haven’t yet solved the riddle of charging infrastructure in the remote backcountry.
