Hybrid technology at the service of the environment and off-road lovers. The evolution of Jeep passes through the adoption of a plug-in hybrid system to improve fuel consumption and access state bonuses and concessions without giving up its own off-road identity.
The three electrified models of the American brand, which has entered the galaxy of the Stellantis group, are the SUVs with off-road skills Renegade and Compass and the unstoppable Wrangler.
We compared the various models for the Electric Days Digital 2021, the official event dedicated to the world of sustainable mobility, accessible on the website www.electricdays.it.
For the city and for off-road vehicles
Electrified Jeeps are recognizable by the 4xe denomination, which can be translated as “plug-in hybrid with 4-wheel drive”. The first “on tap” models of the American house are Renegade and Compass.
In both the thermal unit, a 130 or 180hp 1.3 turbo 4-cylinder petrol engine combined with front-wheel drive, is combined with a rear-mounted 60hp E-Motor electric powertrain.

The result is a total power of 190 or 240 hp, with an average consumption of 2 liters per 100 km. Official figures speak of a 0-100 km / h in 7 “for the S and Trailhawk versions of the Renegade (3 tenths more, however, for the larger Compass).
The Wrangler 4xe instead uses a 2.0 petrol and an electric unit for a total of 380 hp and 50 km of autonomy (as for Renegade and Compass) only in EV mode. The 11.4 kWh battery can be recharged from a public column or with domestic wallboxes of different power to improve “refueling” times.

As expected from a Jeep, the Select-Terrain system is available on all models, which manages the car’s trim and traction depending on the terrain being traveled.
