Does anyone know if you can switch between modes while you are traveling? If so, is there a speed limit to it?

Thanks

You can switch between modes any time. On trips, Hybrid is the most efficient. A lot of people have stated that you need to switch to eSave + Charge when the battery runs to <1% but that is incorrect. That actually makes the gas engine work harder and will push down your gas milage. Jeep has done a great job of working the software to maximize overall efficiency in Hybrid mode. Esave is kind of a spacial case use mode. If you want the battery for later and don't mind taking the hit on the gas milage, that's when eSave comes in to play.

Keep in mind, when you are switching modes, all you are doing is telling the software to change the engine/motor bias. There isn't anything that switches mechanically in the vehicle so there are no speed restrictions when switching modes.

Thanks so much for the replies. This education helps. Our 4xe came with the regular JL manual, so no way to learn about electric!!

I'd try to get the dealer to send you the supplimental manual. When I took possession, the first thing the salesman did was go over the supplimental manual. It should have been in the green bag.

With a vehicle like this it's good to have a hard copy in the glove box.

Going to piggy back on this Snazz-E, as it is closly related.

Does this also apply to the Max Regen? Can you turn that on and off when you are driving? In my Volt, Max Regen is Low, and I am use to hot swapping between D/L as I drive to only enact that heavy drag when i want to stop.

Curious if I can do this same thing with the 4xe.

Yes, I almost always forget to turn it on at first. I believe it only impacts the regenerative braking.
