2022 New Jeep Renegade e-Hybrid Revealed in Europe

The new models debut an advanced hybrid system featuring a new 4-cylinder 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine, from the Global Small Engine family, which delivers 130 hp and 240 Nm of peak torque, coupled with a new 7-speed 7HDT300 dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The propulsion system includes a built-in 48-volt 15-kW (20-hp) electric motor delivering 55 Nm of torque – equivalent to 135 Nm at gearbox input level – which can propel the wheels even when the internal combustion engine is turned off. The new versions offer up to 15 percent lower consumption and CO2 emissions than the previous petrol models.

Courtesy of the new hybrid technology, the Jeep Renegade and Compass e-Hybrid models offer a new alternative in the two-wheel-drive segment. Customers can keep their driving habits intact and enjoy an authentic hybrid driving experience, with full-electric propulsion available at start-up, when travelling at low speeds, cruising and in parking maneuvers.

The new 4-cylinder turbocharged engine has been designed to be the best fit for hybrid usage, to optimise thermodynamics, and therefore to save on fuel consumption. It operates on the Miller cycle which improves thermal efficiency and offers a high compression ratio (12.5:1), a new cylinder head with compact combustion chamber, dual variable valve timing and special ‘high-tumble’ intake ducts. Also new is the high-pressure direct injection system, operating at up to 350 bar. This petrol engine delivers an output of 130 hp, while peak torque reaches 240 Nm. A belt starter generator is also installed in the petrol engine, to guarantee fast and silent transitions when restarting.

The braking system of the new Renegade and Compass e-Hybrid includes the Intelligent Brake System which includes an ‘auto-charge’ feature using mixed regenerative braking to maximise the recovery of kinetic energy and improves efficiency.
