New Jeep Renegade And Compass Plug-In Hybrids With Up To 237HP

With the unveiling of the plug-in hybrid versions of the Renegade and Compass at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Jeep has taken an important step into the future.

The smallest member of the brand’s family, the Renegade, combines a new 1.3-liter turbocharged petrol engine with an electric motor, for a total output said to stand in the 190-240 PS (187-237 hp / 140-178 kW) range.

With the battery fully charged, it can be driven for around 50 km (31 miles) on electric power, at no more than 130 km/h (81 mph). When the ICE kicks in, the Renegade PHEV takes approximately 7 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph).

The new plug-in hybrid version of the Compass enjoys up to 240 PS (237 hp / 178 kW) of combined power. The compact model’s still pending homologation, but it’s expected to have a very similar performance to the smaller Renegade, which emits less than 50 g/km of CO2.

Besides making them friendlier to the environment, the plug-in hybrid powertrain improves their off-road capabilities. Jeep says that thanks to the extra torque offered by the rear electric motor, which can be adjusted with precision during take-offs, traction to the rear axle has been improved.

Additionally, the eAWD (electric all-wheel drive) system allows the two axles to work independently from each other, which makes it more effective than a traditional mechanical system.

Besides the PHEV powertrain, the plug-in hybrid Renegade and Compass feature a dedicated instrument cluster and infotainment screen that provide key information to the driver.

    There it is

    Plug-in + FCA = Sounds disastrous

    • Benjamin B.

      The Pacifica is actually FCA’s most reliable and well built vehicle and it’s also a Plug-in. Anyway this drivetrain is now the most powerful in its class, besting the Electric Kia Soul and Hyundai Kona EV.

      • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

        LOL, nope.

        10,000% false, the facts prove you wrong.

        According to Consumer Reports, ALG, and TrueDelta, the Pacifica is the LEAST reliable vehicle produced by Chrysler. Actually, Chrysler is ranked 26th out of 28th, and the Pacifica is reported as their least reliable vehicle.

        • TheToadPrince..~~ToadSquad

          i qork for fca…ive never seen a pacifica with problems with it..

    • TheToadPrince..~~ToadSquad

      ummm the pacifica is selling more as a hybrid then the gas is…but whatever u say

      • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

        “ummm the pacifica is selling more as a hybrid then the gas is…but whatever u say”

        NO IT DOESN’T!!!!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!!!

        Seriously, stop making up numbers you child. Here are ACTUAL sales numbers.

        Here’s for this year so far:

        January 2019 Pacifica Gas sales:
        6,537
        January 2019 Pacifica PHEV sales:
        436

        February 2019 Pacifica Gas sales:
        7,265
        February 2019 Pacifica PHEV sales:
        589

        Here’s for all of 2018:
        Pacifica Gas: 111,260
        Pacifica PHEV: 7,062

        It isn’t even remotely close. All you’ve proven is you don’t work for FCA at all, and you make everything up that you say.

        • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

          You just love to argue because no one gives you attention irl, right? Sad to be you, foolish liberal

          • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

            Liberal?

            I’ve asked you a half dozen times now why you think that is an insult. You have still not provided a response.

            Do you not even know why that isn’t an insult? It isn’t an insult, it is a political stance. You calling someone a liberal makes no sense, it would be like me calling you a human but thinking that it is an insult.

            Logic, you’ve got none.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            So arguing and debating on a car website is your only life on here? This is why you SJW soyboys are very dangerous.

          • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

            Do you even know what SJW is?

            What I’m doing has nothing to do with “social justice” further proving that you’ve got no idea of what you’re talking about.

            Here’s the definition so you understand how wrong you are:

            so·cial jus·tice

            Dictionary result for social justice
            noun
            justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society.
            “individuality gives way to the struggle for social justice”

            LOL, keep making me laugh. SO MUCH FUN!

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            That’s what you’re doing. Being a typical one because you don’t like how the person’s expresses their point of views and opinions, so you attack them with your rhetoric BS that no one wants to follow or listen to. Keep being a SJW, my feeble puppet. 😭😂😭😂

          • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

            Again:

            “so·cial jus·tice

            Dictionary result for social justice
            noun
            justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society.
            “individuality gives way to the struggle for social justice”

            You make me laugh.

            I blocked him sime time ago

          • Paul

            Sorry, but if these ARE the actual numbers the comment is valid, working for FCA aside.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    I wouldn’t touch a PHEV from FCA with a 10 foot pole.

    Their brands are consistently rated as some of the least reliable in the entire market. Out of 28 brands, Dodge is 21st, Jeep is 23rd, and Chrysler is 26th.

    That’s pathetic as most of their products are old and should have had all of the kinks worked out by now.

    • Matteo Tommasi

      You know that those rakings list as issues “hard to use infotainment” (if you’re stupid) and “stiff ride” (for the 3-series!!). Those rankings are useful like sand in the desert, or rain in Amazzonia.

  • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

    Look at this guy. Arguing with people that doesn’t agree with his own. SICK

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      LOL.

      Opinion =/= Fact.

      Do you know the difference between the two?

      I’ve provided facts, you can’t disagree with facts. Facts are concrete and are what they are. This has nothing to do with agreement, this has to do with someone passing make believe information as fact.

      Nice try though, I’ll keep on pointing out how wrong you are as long as you’re here. This is so much fun for me.

      • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

        -failed again.

        Wow you honestly love to argue online because apparently you have no friends or family to interact with. All you do is keep getting mauled by other people because they don’t agree with your opinions, which they are facts.

        Try again.

        • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

          I’m at work, bud. I finish my daily tasks and I have some free time in between clients where I come on here just to see the fresh stupidity that you’ve posted.

          “All you do is keep getting mauled by other people because they don’t agree with your opinions, which they are facts.”

          Again, Opinion =/= Fact

          You can’t disagree with fact, you can’t argue with fact. LOL.

          Mauled, right. Sure thing. You make me laugh and brighten my day.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            Finished with your clients, but you got no friends to talk to because you can’t be a strong individual to make real life interaction with people at your job? This shows me how much a weird person you are. So this is what you do most of your free time right? LMFAO keep getting mauled boy. I don’t even waste time arguing with people and calling them idiots, but you, you’re a definition of a troll that wants my attention. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😂😂😂😂😂

          • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

            “Finished with your clients, but you got no friends to talk to because you can’t be a strong individual to make friends?”

            Uhhh, because I’m at work. Most people in a professional environment don’t spend hours on the phone talking to their friends or texting. That’s what AFTER WORK is for.

            You’re proving that you’re too young to even understand this.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            “Uhhh, because I’m at work. Most people in a professional environment don’t spend hours on the phone talking to their friends or texting. That’s what AFTER WORK is for.”

            That is one of the lamest excuse i ever heard from you. Like really, i know you don’t have any because you’re just a self centered SJW troll that thinks he’s better than everyone at your job. Nice try jacob, anymore of your excuses why you don’t interact with real life people.

            😭😭😂😂

            I represent exactly what you said you hate, it makes me proud to be who I am.

            Being a lesbian makes me automatically a liberal and you automatically hate me because of that? LOL.

            Ahhh nice edited screencap. If you have a girlfriend, i would literally take her away from you since you can’t keep her comfortable instead of trolling horribly.

            It is fun to watch him fly off the handle because I represent exactly what he says he hates.

            I do it for the LOLs! 🙂

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            You’re such a sad lonely feminist troll that has no one to talk in real life. Sucks to be you, whatever you weirdos call yourself. LMFAO

          • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

            Being bisexual makes me a feminist? That’s news to me!

            Weirdo because I’m a bisexual? Insecure little man.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            Insecured? Talk about you trolling and being obsessed with some stranger on the internet that you never met irl. You should try grindr if you want to meet someone irl to help you get out of your box.

            LOL!! How rich

    This is interesting. I wouldn’t buy the first of them though.

    I’m guessing these won’t be available in the US, is that correct?

    I would purchase a German/European vehicle before this.
