    Qouted from the article. “We are also exploring four-wheel-drive, in-wheel electric motors to demonstrate the full reach of ENVI’s advanced electric-drive technologies,” said Rhodes.
    The instant high torque of the electric-drive motor and the ability to precisely control each wheel independently results in off-road capability ideally suited for the Jeep brand, without compromising on-road driving capability.

    And remember the lack of a transfer case shifter might just mean it's an electronic shift mechanism.

    I'm kinda partial to my gas junkie. Don't think that I would get one. Instead of gas money, my electricity bill would go up. If I can't afford gas, I walk. If I can't afford electricity, I take cold showers. I like my showers.
