PHEV Jeep Compass and Renegade E-Volution Models Debut in Geneva

Jeep launched a new plug-in hybrid version of the Compass and Renegade at the Geneva Motor Show.


Both the Jeep Compass and Jeep Renegade unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show feature what Jeep calls E-volution. The new plug-in hybrid technology combines a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an electric motor and a battery.

Jeep didn’t provide any info the battery capacity or the electric motor, but they did state that total output reaches between 190 horsepower and 240 horsepower.

That’s good enough to power the Renegade PHEV to 100 km/h in about 7.0 seconds. The Jeep Compass and we are guessing the new Alfa Romeo Tonale will boast similar numbers.

Both the Compass and Renegade PHEV models will get an eAWD system which uses the electric motor to power the rear axle instead of a traditional prop shaft. Each axle’s torque is controlled independently.

Total range for the Jeep Compass and Renegade E-volution PHEV models is set at 50 kilometers. You can also get to 130 km/h using just electric power. CO2 emissions are rated at less than 50 g/km.

Jeep moving towards plug-in hybrid technology was expected for a while, and starting with the Compass and Renegade seems like the right way to go about it.

FCA confirmed a massive investment in both Jeep and Dodge a few weeks ago which will mean new Jeep models like the Grand Wagoneer as well as new versions of current models. A Jeep Grand Cherokee PHEV is expected sometime down the road.

As for the Jeep Compass PHEV and its little brother the Renegade, we expect to see them arrive on the market next year.
