One thing you have to let the jeep managers do: if they do something, then consistently. First, they take a lot of time to electrify their US climbers, but then they mercilessly pull them through. With Renegade and Compass, two bestsellers from the Fiat Chrysler subsidiary now have a plug-in hybrid drive.

If you want to have a 4×4 Renegade or Compass in the future, you have to use the electrified model. Everyone else has “only” front-wheel drive. Although this does not correspond to the basic idea of ​​the “I dig my way through” brand, it makes economic sense: mechanical all-wheel drive drives up the price and the electric motor in the back is half the battle to drive both axles.
