Chrysler Announced The Jeep Renegade Concept

Jeep Renegade concept

Chrysler will unveil at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show the Jeep Renegade Concept. This concept is made out of aluminum so it doesn’t weigh to much. The Renegade is a parallel hybrid, powered by a 40-mile lithium-ion battery and a BLUETEC diesel engine. Jeep said that this concept will use one gallon for more than 110 miles. If this kind of lithium-ion battery packs will be more often used we’ll probably be witnesses to a fuel economy.

The Renegade’s windshield and its roll bar makes it look more sporty and the door openings keep the Jeep attitude. Because of the vertical headlights the concept has an aerodynamic look. You could see that Renegade is a Jeep trademark due to its design.

As we heard Chrysler has three concepts ready to be presented in January at the Detroit Auto Show and the Jeep Renegade is one of them.
