Jeep has revealed plug-in hybrid versions of the Wrangler, Compass and Renegade at the CES.
The brand will use a new Jeep 4xe badge to identify its hybrid models.
Electrification is seen by the brand as an opportunity for it to become a “leader in green eco-friendly premium technology.”
According to Jeep, “with greater torque and immediate engine response, Jeep electric vehicles will offer an even more fun-to-drive experience on the road and more capability than ever off the road.”
At this stage, the powertrain details for the Wrangler and Compass 4xe are yet to be confirmed.
The Renegade 4xe will use a 1.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine combined with a 99kW electric motor mounted on the rear subframe. Depending on the variant, the power output is listed between 141kW-176kW with 258Nm of torque. It’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Jeep Wrangler, Compass and Renegade 4xe models will be available in some markets this year, more details will be revealed at the Geneva, New York and Beijing motor shows.
All three vehicles are part of FCA’s commitment to globally launch more than 30 electrified nameplates by 2022.
