Renegade and Compass e-Hybrid deliver an innovative hybrid driving experience thanks to a specific propulsion system featuring:
a new 1.5 T4 turbo 130 hp 240 Nm gasoline engine,
coupled with a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, integrating a 48-Volt 15-kW electric motor.
The water-cooled 48-Volt battery also includes a 48-to-12 Volt DC/DC converter, and a Belt Starter Generator has been introduced for smooth restart of the engine at low speed, thus increasing comfort.
The new 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, from the Global Small Engine family, has been designed to be the best fit for hybrid usage.
It operates on the Miller cycle which offers a high compression ratio (12.5:1) and improves thermal efficiency therefore reducing fuel consumption.
