Jeep®: adventures that bring us closer to nature

The Jeep® brand is expanding its range of electrified models to reduce carbon emissions and environmental impact

By Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

At FCA, we are conscious of the effect that our activities and products have on society and the environment, and of the role we play in developing solutions to reduce our environmental footprint.

The commitment to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions of our vehicles is an integral part of our business plan presented on June 1, 2018 at our Capital Markets Day event. The 2018-2022 business plan includes the expectation of significant investment in the next five years to introduce a range of electrification solutions for FCA vehicles.

By 2022, FCA expects to offer 12 electrified propulsion systems (BEV, PHEV, full-hybrid and mild-hybrid) in global architectures spanning the full range of vehicle segments; 30 nameplates will feature one or more of these systems.

These vehicles will join the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, the world’s first hybrid minivan, which started production in late 2016, and the recently launched all-new Jeep® Wrangler with mild hybrid technology. The vehicle benefits from the hybrid functions of the FCA eTorque system, which improves fuel economy, launch performance and driver comfort during start/stop operations. In addition, the Jeep® Wrangler’s environmental profile benefits from reduced weight through the utilisation of high-strength steel, which also increases strength in critical areas.

The Jeep® Renegade is another key element in the brand’s portfolio, offering turbo gas engines which maximise fuel efficiency and ensure outstanding performance both on and off-road. The use of lightweight materials and technologies, LED front lighting, and an innovative rear axle disconnect system all contribute to more efficient fuel consumption.

Available across Europe in 2018 with enhanced efficiency and a more distinctive style, the Jeep® Renegade provides a complete set of safety equipment. This includes technologies such as the Intelligent Speed Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition as standard on the entire range.

In addition, the Forward Collision Warning-Plus with Active Emergency Braking, standard on the Limited, helps drivers avoid crashes by assisting them to control their vehicles or alerts them to potentially hazardous situations.

Jeep® brand vehicles demonstrate how nature and technology can live in harmony, and provide adventures that expand our understanding of our wonderful planet.

As a company with customers across more than 140 countries and operations in more than 40 countries, we embrace our sustainability commitment in the products we make and how we make them.

We strive to provide our customers with products that will take them on extraordinary journeys, while remaining mindful of our responsibility to the environment around us.
