At the CES-2020 Consumer Electronics Show, the American automaker showed electric versions of its off-road bestsellers.

The plug-in hybrid versions of Wrangler, Compass and Renegade, which were announced by Jeep, successfully debuted at the CES-2020 in Las Vegas, which opened on January 7. Novelties have a design familiar to fans of the brand, but the manufacturer did not declassify their specifics. Their eco-friendly PHEV versions can be distinguished from ordinary SUVs in blue accents, as well as new 4xe icons and, of course, charging ports. On the hybrid Compass and Renegade, they are located on the rear wing on the driver’s side. At Wrangler, the manufacturer placed the charging port below the left front pillar.

About the technical characteristics of new products in Jeep, too, are silent. According to the assumption of the foreign portal, the hybrid Wrangler can get a power plant from the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. It consists of a 3.6-liter V6 engine, two electric motors and a 16 kWh lithium-ion battery. The total power of such a hybrid reaches 260 hp, and on one electricity it can travel up to 32 miles (about 50 kilometers).

The brand promises to reveal more details and its hybrid SUVs already this year: this will happen at the upcoming motor shows in Geneva, New York and Beijing.

 With the Wrangler, Compass, and Renegade hybrid, Jeep began implementing its ambitious plan to electrify its entire lineup by 2022. Representatives of the brand also noted that hybrids with plug-in modules will be more capable and “complaisant” in management due to the increased torque and an improved motor.
