Jeep® Renegade 4xe will be a Plug-In Hybrid Electric 4x4 Vehicle, equipped with a petrol engine, which drives the front wheels, and an electric motor, which drives the rear wheels improving the off road capability. The two engines will work together, with automatic management by the vehicle. The electric motor will be powered by an 11.4 kW battery that will be recharged during driving by regenerative braking, and can be recharged externally via the power grid. The battery will allow the car to function as an all-electric vehicle for up to 30 miles when the battery is fully charged. If the battery approaches the end of its charge, the petrol engine automatically intervenes to recharge it while driving, to ensure a constant availability of the 4xe drive.
