Fiat's Electric Vehicle Battery Line-UpThere is a lot of speculation around which vehicles the electric batteries will power. Currently, FCA has only one plug-in vehicle, which is the Fiat 500e. For those pondering the Jeep Wrangler hybrid release date, we're expecting it in early 2018. But with previous hybrid versions being scrapped, namely the Wrangler EV, we can't say for sure.

As of now, you can expect the following vehicles to have hybrid counterparts:
- Chrysler Pacifica
- Ram 1500
- Jeep Wrangler
LG Chem and other Auto MakersFiat Chrysler isn't the only game in town, and LG Chem has several other deals to produce batteries for FCA's competitors, including Volkswagen and Daimler. This definitely an organization on the rise who can possibly surpass Panasonic (Tesla battery producer) as the largest EV battery supplier globally.
