The Jeep Grand Commander is capable of driving 70 kilometers on electric

In China, sales of the rechargeable hybrid Jeep Grand Commander, the first all-terrain vehicle of the brand to be charged from the mains, have started. The car is equipped with three engines: a gasoline “turbo four” and two electric motors of various powers. The peak power of the SI-EVT power plant reaches 265 horsepower.

The base of the Grand Commander rechargeable hybrid is the same 2.0-liter turbo engine with 230 horsepower (311 Nm of torque) as in the regular version. Two electric motors help the traditional ICE: 121-horsepower with a torque of 315 Nm, and 90-hp (torque – 115 Nm).

The SUV is able to move in four modes: on a “clean” electric traction with a power reserve of 70 kilometers in the NEDC cycle, in the ICE-electric motor mode, when a less powerful electric motor acts as a generator, in engine braking mode, when both electric motors “store” energy and as much as possible dynamic sport mode.

Jeep announces a 12.95 kilowatt-hour battery capacity and guarantees the hybrid is fully charged from a regular 220 volt outlet in two hours. Externally, Grand Commander PHEV is practically no different from a conventional SUV: the hybrid produces an original design of the rims, an additional charging door and a nameplate on the trunk lid. Capacity was not affected: in a seven-seat configuration, the usable volume reaches 775 liters.

The base Jeep Grand Commander PHEV is estimated at 310 thousand yuan (about 2.82 million rubles at the current rate), but the equipment is rich: the “base” includes LED optics, a panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control, a 7-inch media system display and a leather interior .

Outside of the China, rechargeable Jeep hybrids will also appear: the new Grand Cherokee and the Wagooneer family of SUVs will receive similar architecture.
