Jeep® Renegade Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) SUV
The Renegade PHEV has features that bring out the model’s strong personality while being eco-friendly and respectful of the urban environment thanks to a pure electric range of approximately 31 miles and no CO2 emissions in full-electric mode. In order to deliver these figures, the Renegade combines a 1.3-litre GSE turbo petrol engine with an electric motor located between the rear wheels, powered by a set of batteries that can be recharged while driving or by using an external power outlet: at home with the domestic plug, using the efficient Wallbox, or with a public charge point.
Recharging times can vary from an hour and a half to three hours depending on the type of outlet.
The Jeep Renegade PHEV Hybrid SUV features a unique interior and dashboard, plus an 8.4″ HD Uconnect system with specific pages to allow the driver to control its day-to-day hybrid driving operation.
The Selec-Terrain maintains its location in front of the gear shift lever, while the Hybrid selector appears right next to it allowing the driver to select between the following driving modes:
Hybrid: the mode that optimises power to minimise fuel consumption. Internal combustion engine and electric motor work together depending on the road type, with energy recovery phases when braking.
eSave: the internal combustion engine can maintain or recharge the battery while driving (driver’s selectable options).
Electric: full-electric mode which allows for a pure electric range of approximately 31 miles.
The new 7″ TFT colour display shows new information in front of the driver’s eyes: the battery charge level, range in electric, combustion and combined modes, power percentage and recharge levels. The 8.4″ Uconnect colour screen features new tabs such as power flow, driving history, charging times, eSave and the different charge settings.
Thanks to the new electric all-wheel-drive technology (eAWD), traction to the rear axle is not provided by a prop shaft but through the dedicated electric motor. This allows the two axles to be separated and control the torque independently in a more effective way than a mechanical system.
