The American brand Jeep, under the wings of the Stellantis group, is betting on plug-in hybrid variants of its SUVs, marked 4xe. In Europe, cars with this drive account for a quarter of the brand’s sales.
In the electrification scale one point lower, there is a new full-hybrid version for both models. That is, one that can run short sections on electricity, but the battery cannot be recharged from the mains.
The combustion part of the drive is a petrol supercharged fifteen-liter engine with an output of 96 kilowatts, 130 hp, and a torque of 240 newton meters. It works in the economical Miller combustion cycle and cooperates with a new seven-stage two-clutch cabinet.
The electrical part is represented by a 48V electric motor with an output of 15 kW and a torque of 55 Nm, up to 135 Nm at the input to the gearbox.
The advantage compared to purely petrol variants is, of course, to have lower fuel consumption. And by up to 15 percent. Jeep reports a combined consumption of 5.7 – 6.1 l / 100 km for the smaller renegade and 5.6 – 6.0 l / 100 km for the compass.
The new drive has so far been sold on leading European markets, the Czech price has not yet been announced by the domestic representation.
