These were done with the battery at less than 1%. I was in 4WD high. I'm happy to report that 0-60 in 6 seconds is completely feasible even with the battery discharged. I was hitting eSave+charge between attempts just to put a touch in but I was at that less than 1% state on all runs.

That’s impressive. I wonder if you can shave 1/2 second off the time if you rev the engine, before launching, rather than punching it from low RPM’s.
just wondering..

I was power braking but I wasn't getting it up too high. I was trying to abuse it as little as possible. :)

I'm a bit shocked at the performance, ours was delivered tonight, we took it for a spin, it was at a depleted 1% (battery), hybrid mode, and it pulled insanely hard. We're getting rid of a 5.7L Hemi AWD DD/RT, and this absolutely feels quicker. I'm coming from a long line of performance cars as the "second car", so I have a decent "feel" for acceleration, and it's pretty amazing (given it's a 4000+ brick with a 2.0L 4 banger as the foundation).

I think even when the battery is showing less than 1% it has a "reserve" of 15% so you still have juice left for the hybrid mode. I just won't run full electric. Correct ,e if I'm wrong.

Exactly. There is always around 15% SOC in the high voltage battery. The vehicle will work to maintain that 15%. I did a couple of long drives recently and there is always the same power available.

That's outstanding, I think I knew going in there was some kind of reserve (that's not displayed), but I was wondering how long it lasted, sounds like the system attempts to maintain that, I suppose unless you're in some kind of outlier scenario (where you're standing on it 0 -100 several times in a row).

In the simplest of terms, think of it like a regular vehicle with an alternator driving at night with the headlights on and the AC running. The consumption is replaced by the alternator. Now just remove the alternator and put in an eTorque motor and traction motor that are both able to also be generators.

6s is definitely impressive for a vehicle this size and complexity.
It's quicker that our DD/RT AWD with the 5.7L Hemi - and while the SRT flavor of the DD (which I sort of cross shopped) is certainly quicker on the street, once the pavement ends, the Wrangler will traverse terrain the SRT can't touch.

Plus have more fun doing it with the roof off :D
