Cadillac and Lincoln dominated the limo landscape, but they weren’t the only ones churning out luxury barges.

Chrysler also threw their hat into the ring with decidedly mixed results. That brings us to this 1984 Chrysler Executive Limousine which has just 4,962 miles (7,986 km) on the odometer.

Designed to appeal to America’s elite, the model was based on the Chrysler LeBaron and featured a wheelbase that had been stretched by approximately 30 inches (762 mm).

The extra room was used to create a spacious rear passenger compartment which features a leather bench and two jump seats. Other accommodations include adjustable foot rests, a separate audio system with a cassette player, and a divider for extra privacy.

Despite acres of leather and wood, there was no hiding the fact that the Executive Limousine was a K-Car XL. This become apparent as soon as you stepped on the accelerator as power was provided by a Mitsubishi-sourced 2.6-liter four-cylinder engine that developed 93 hp (69 kW / 94 PS). It was paired to a three-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

Getting back to the car in question, it appears virtually brand new as there are no signs of rust or damage. Even the engine bay is spotless and the seller says the car has never been driven in rain or snow. They added the Executive Limousine was recently serviced and is so nice that it should be put into a museum or dealership showroom.

The car is currently listed on eBay and the seller is asking $24,900 (£18,602 / €20,902).  That might be a bit steep, but they’re willing to entertain “realistic offers.”

Jeep wants to establish itself as the “greenest SUV brand” in the world in a move that will see the company leveraging synergies with the PSA Group.

While recently speaking with members of the media, Jeep boss Christian Meunier indicated the car manufacturer will “pitch itself as a mean, green machine.” However, whereas many automakers are going down the electrification path solely to meet emissions regulations, Meuiner added that the high torque from such powertrains help with the SUVs off-roading abilities.

In fact, he revealed that a Wrangler 4xe recently traversed the difficult Rubicon Trail in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range operating solely in electric mode.

“What is most important is to make our product the most capable and most exciting Jeep ever,” Meunier said. “Additional torque, driving in silence, with extra exceptional acceleration and torque — that’s the perfect fit. Jeep and electrification are meant to be together. Our ambition is to become the greenest SUV brand in the world.”

Jeep will sell its vision for the green future with a new advertising campaign, similar to the one in Europe touting the benefits of electrification in the Renegade and Compass.

When asked by Auto News to provide specifics about how Jeep will benefit from the merger between FCA and PSA, Meunier kept his cards close to his chest. However, he did say there is a lot of potential.

“It’s very clear that Jeep will benefit a lot from the merger,” he said. “There is obviously a lot of potential between platform, drivetrain, cost reduction and things like that. There is a lot of potential opportunities of synergies and manufacturing footprint.”

When Volkswagen unveiled the 2021 ID.4 in September, the company estimated the model would have 250 miles (403 km) of range.

That estimate has panned out as the EPA says the ID.4 1st Edition and ID.4 Pro will be able to travel 250 miles (403 km) on a single charge.

As a refresher, the ID.4 Pro starts at $39,995 and has an 82 kWh battery pack.  It powers a rear-mounted electric motor that develops 201 hp (150 kW / 204 PS) and 228 lb-ft (309 Nm) of torque.

The ID.4 1st Edition has the same powertrain, but costs $43,995 and is better equipped. This version will be the first to arrive in the United States and it features a handful of special touches such as Electric White accents as well as brake and accelerator pedals with pause and play logos.

While 250 miles (403 km) of range doesn’t sound too impressive, it’s pretty competitive for segment. The rear-wheel drive Ford Mustang Mach-E Standard Range has an EPA-estimated range of 230 miles (370 km), while the Extended Range variant increases that figure to 300 miles (383 km).

Other competitors include the 239 mile (385 km) Kia Niro EV and the Tesla Model Y Dual Motor AWD which has an EPA-estimated range of 326 miles (525 km).

The ID.4 is also one of the most affordable electric crossovers as it undercuts the Mustang Mach-E by $2,900. It’s also significantly more affordable than the Model Y, but it’s not an apples-to-apples comparison as the all-wheel drive ID.4 wouldn’t arrive until later next year. Furthermore, the Kia Niro EV is slightly cheaper as pricing starts at $39,090.
