Jeep has confirmed technical details for the Renegade PHEV which is the first plug-in hybrid car.

The electrified Renegade will come up with 99kW rear-mounted electric motor which will be mated to the more powerful 134kW tune of FCA’s which is a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

This is an all-wheel-drive model that comes up with a total system output of 176kW, which can reach 0-100km/h in7.0 seconds.

The combined output will vary between trim levels, the power output will vary between 141kW and 176kW.

The electric-only range of PHEV is 49km which is capable of reaching speeds of up to 130km/h.

Jeep claims that it has brought CO2 emissions to 50g/km under NEDC2 standards.

The Renegade PHEV has come up with six-speed automatic transmission in place of 1.3-litre’s existing nine-speed automatic transmission.

It comes with regenerative braking with a belt-activated generator. The hybrid system will help Jeep improve the Renegade’s off-road ability as its 258Nm of torque can be precisely apportioned between each rear wheel.

PHEV Trailhawk can wade through water up to 60cm deep and will be available in Jeep’s trail-rated Trailhawk trim.

It comes with the option of Electric, Hybrid or leaves modes which can be chosen through the Hybrid selector next to the gear shift.

The save mode makes the Renegade purely dependent on the engine for propulsion and maintains or recharges the battery.

The electric motor hasn’t affected the cabin space, though the boot does lose 15 liters of volume.

The battery is situated within the center tunnel and electric motor is mounted on a modified version of the AWD Renegade’s rear subframe.

The fuel tank is located under the rear seat and has been reduced in capacity from 48 liters to 39 liters.

The electrified Renegade weighs 120kg more than a turbo-diesel Renegade. It’s set to hit the market in Europe in June 2020 with the Compass following later in the summer.
