Autonomy can be reduced depending upon exposure of the car to very warm temperatures for a very long time, as energy is used to cool the batteries. Similarly, in the case of very low temperatures, the autonomy will be reduced because the energy will be used to heat the batteries. Batteries can be exposed to temperatures down to -40 ° C.

How many methods will there be to charge the car?

The vehicle will charge while driving, or by connecting it to an external power outlet.

How will the Jeep® Renegade 4xe charge the battery while driving?

The Renegade 4xe will charge the battery through:
1- Regenerative braking: electric vehicles will use regenerative braking, which will convert the vehicle’s kinetic energy into electrical energy and will use it to charge the battery, instead of wasting it as thermal energy as with conventional ICE brakes. Electric motors will consume energy to provide movement. When this movement will be no longer required (for example in the slowing down phase), the braking force will be able to be used to reverse the motor action and generate electricity. The process is known as regenerative braking and the electricity generated can be sent to the battery. In the right conditions the autonomy of an electric car can be extended by more than 10% thanks to the collection of regenerated electricity.
2- E-Save driving mode: by setting this mode on the Hybrid Selector in your Jeep® Renegade 4xe, the 4xe system will keep the battery at a defined charge level, or can recharge the battery up to a set threshold.
