+ 1.5L Diesel
The Jeep Renegade concept was displayed at the 2008 Detroit
Motor Show. The Renegade concept is powered by a new electric
drivetrain which Chrysler put in two other concepts shown
at Detroit. The system is called ENVI, and in the Renegade
concept it comprises of two 268 horsepower electric motors
(one on each axle) powered by lithium ion batteries. This
is backed up by a Bluetec diesel engine giving a combined
mpg of 110 miles when used with the electric motors.
Constructed from environmentally responsible materials,
sustainability is a key theme of the Jeep Renegade concept.
The one-piece molded chassis was created without using
environmentally-harmful resins, inside are soy-based foam
seats, and the no-gloss exterior color of the Renegade's
body is molded in to avoid the use of solvents present
in automotive paints.
The Jeep Renegade concept's "one-with-nature"
personality is emphasized by its large, flaring wheel
openings, oversized wheels and tires, and cut-down speedster
Among the unique exterior details of the Renegade are
"deconstructed" rubber-clad headlamps and taillamps,
as well as elongated triangular openings in each of the
two sculpted doors.
While the Jeep Renegade concept features a roll bar, it
has no top. Instead, the cargo deck just behind the cockpit
can be fitted with a variety of "lids." Options
include a plain lid, or lids configured to accommodate
the gear of a particular outdoor day-trip activity, such
as mountain biking or kayaking.
