Is Jeep Making a Plug-In Hybrid Renegade?

2018 Jeep Renegade SUV

The Jeep Renegade is a sporty subcompact crossover SUV with the perfect combination of sophistication and off-road capability. With its newly updated look, the 2019 Renegade provides an up-to-date driving and riding experience no matter where the road takes you. Also, good news, eco-warriors! In a couple of short years, the Jeep Renegade will be even more environmentally friendly than it is today. That's right, the rumours are true. Here is the latest information on the Plug-In Hybrid Jeep Renegade.


The Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid will be produced at the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Melfi plant, which is located in the southern part of Italy. The Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid is one of the many different models manufactured by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles that will begin using electric, plug-in, or conventional hybrid driving systems.

The exterior, interior, and other features of the Renegade Plug-In Hybrid will be based on the current Jeep Renegade models that are already on the market today. The great Jeep experience that's been a mainstay for so many years will still be the same. The only differences between the standard Renegade and the Renegade Plug-In Hybrid will be, of course, the engine and the fuel economy. In addition to the Renegade Plug-In Hybrid, Jeep is also working on a plug-in hybrid version of the Wrangler.


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will be investing at least $10 billion, but probably more, into its plug-in hybrid vehicle electrification efforts over the next few years. This massive cost is necessary for the company in order for them to comply with targets for emissions set by the United States. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is also working on decreasing the use of diesel engines in their vehicles. Sustainability can certainly be expensive, especially for auto-makers, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is proving that they will pay any price to give their drivers an environmentally friendly and reliable vehicle.


The current plan is for Jeep to create at least eight Plug-In Hybrid models for the automobile market between now and 2022. The final variation of the Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid is expected to enter the market early in 2020, so not too much longer before you can reap the benefits of advanced hybrid technology in a Jeep. 

Drivers can expect the same durability and utility that comes standard with owning a Jeep, and as a bonus, a more eco-friendly riding and driving experience. Who says driving an environmentally-friendly vehicle can't be fun, exciting, and reliable? Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is proving that making them can be good business as well.

There isn't a ton of information on the new Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid, but it certainly is no longer a rumour. The Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid is absolutely happening in the next couple of years and should excite environmentally-conscious drivers from around the world. In the meantime, the standard version of the 2019 Jeep Renegade can handle any task you throw at it while you wait for the hybrid version.
