The new 4Xe Plug-In Hybrid is now available, Jeep’s pioneering spirit has been reborn and reimagined in the 4xe’s Dual Soul: the electric and petrol engines work together to form a hybrid vehicle that offers an enhanced driving experience as you prepare for new adventures - without the emissions. Prepare to explore in ways that are both responsive and responsible, with all the benefits of a 4-wheel drive in terms of on-road control and best-in-class off-road capability, with up to 26 miles of zero on the road Co2 emissions* whilst driving in full electric mode.
The Jeep Renegade 4xe is centered on the pillars of efficiency, performance and responsibility. It is the most fuel-efficient Jeep SUV ever, with the new 4xe technology offering zero tailpipe-emission in full electric mode.
The Jeep Renegade 4xe powertrain integrates two electric motors and an 11.4 kWh battery pack, with a fuel-efficient 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine and six-speed automatic transmission. This architecture provides two cars in one: a battery electric vehicle featuring an electric motor and a high-voltage lithium-ion battery pack on the rear axle and a conventional vehicle with an internal combustion engine fitted on the front axle. The plug-in hybrid system allows it to travel for a range of up to 26 miles in full-electric mode*.

On its own, the efficient 1.3-litre turbo engine delivers a power output of 130hp or 180hp, plus the 60hp produced by the electric motor, giving a total of 190hp in the Longitude and Limited version or 240hp in the Trailhawk model. In terms of torque, the electric motor produces 250Nm, while the combustion engine delivers 270Nm. The combination of an internal combustion engine and the electric units guarantees performance and maximum driving pleasure, with acceleration from zero to 62mph in around 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 81mph in full electric and up to 124mph in hybrid mode.
Efficiency is not achieved at the expense of performance. The Jeep Renegade 4xe remains true to its all-terrain vocation while offering an enhanced driving experience on the road, with smooth responses and acceleration. The increased torque generated by the electric motor and the ability to adjust it with extreme precision ensures even greater four-wheel-drive capability on any terrain, for extreme off-road adventures.
The Renegade 4xe features a new six-speed automatic transmission selector, updated Selec-Terrain rotary control with eAWD modes (4WD Lock, 4WD Low, Hill Descent Control) to engage the different driving modes - Auto, Snow, Mud & Sand, and Rock - including the new Sport mode for enhanced throttle response and steering. In case of extended off-road driving, two electric motors featuring Powerloop ensure that eAWD traction is always available.
Thanks to the plug-in hybrid electric technology, CO2 emissions are lower than 50g/km in hybrid mode* and the cost of ownership is reduced. However, the Jeep brand’s focus on sustainability runs deeper than this and starts even before these vehicles hit the road, thanks to a manufacturing cycle designed to have the lowest environmental impact.
The new Jeep Renegade 4xe line-up includes three trim levels – Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk – all featuring four-wheel-drive (eAWD) and a six-speed automatic transmission.
