Jeep Renegade Concept

Fri, 23 Nov 2007

Chrysler has revealed three sketches of new concepts it is scheduled to unveil at the Detroit Auto Show in January. One of these is the Jeep Renegade Concept, a sporty B-segment-sized two-seater the automaker claims is ideally suited for the all-weather delights of off-roading and dune surfing.

The design of the vehicle is a futuristic take on the existing open-topped Jeep Wrangler, featuring a cut-down speedster windshield, a roll bar, openings in the door lowers and a hose-out interior. Measuring 3885mm in length, 1598mm in width (at the H-point), 1431mm high and with a wheelbase of 2580mm, this compact "eco-friendly" vehicle was designed with minimal material usage. According to Chrysler it is 'designed for those who want to enjoy the earth while taking care of its future'.

Powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and a small-displacement BLUETEC diesel engine, the concept is claimed to travel up to 40 miles on battery power alone. But when mated to the diesel engine the hybrid powertrain is claimed to result in a fuel economy figure surpassing 110 miles per gallon.
