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, 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.
