March 25, 2019 - “We’re writing a whole new chapter in the Jeep story. These are the first of a new generation of vehicles, designed for a new generation of drivers,” said Jeff Hines, Head of Jeep® Brand EMEA, as he presented the new Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) in front of the FCA stands at the Geneva International Motor Show. These new Jeeps are all about innovative ideas in sustainable mobility and respect for the environment, without sacrificing the performance or true spirit of the brand – not to mention the benefits these new vehicles bring to us all.
On the back of record global sales (and here in Europe we went from 19,000 units sold in 2009 to 170,000 in 2018), Jeep, a brand known for its pioneering spirit, has taken another step forward for the environment. Application of plug-in hybrid technology is a step toward no-compromise electrification harmoniously integrated with the core structure of these best-selling models.
