THE JEEP E-VOLUTION SHOWCASED IN GENEVA

After setting a new global sales record in 2018, Jeep welcomes 2019 as the year of an evolution.  Jeep has always been an automotive pioneer starting in 1941 with the Willys-Overland, the first 4×4 vehicle, followed in 1946 by the Willys Wagon, which first introduced the concept of the Sport Utility Vehicle. Its legendary reputation for off-road capability has lasted ever since. Today, Jeep is making another major evolutionary step by presenting its new plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) models. A no-compromise hybrid solution, which integrates the unmatched technical layout of each Jeep SUV, will power both the Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass and turn them into vehicles that provide absolute freedom while taking their capability to the next level through eco-friendly technology.
