Thread: Jeep Renegade

Jeep Renegade concept

is showing a diesel-electric hybrid at the Detroit Auto Show week.

The Renegade has two electric one for each axle. Fully the batteries are supposed to provide 40 of driving. There’s a small Bluetec diesel on board to a generator, extending the driving when the batteries are depleted.

As a proper Jeep, the concept has low and locking differentials.

40 miles

40 miles on battery alone isn’t so bad. living in urban or suburban mostly make round of 10 miles or less.

I expect the Renegade’s battery pack can be from a 110V or 220V AC in your garage. So you can plug in you return home, and be ready to go the morning.

The trade-off for longer of course, is the weight of the batteries. where the internal combustion comes in. The difference in this is that, unlike the Prius and hybrid cars of today, the diesel engine doesn’t the wheels.

It powers a generator that over for the batteries.

Jeep Renegade Electric Cars

Diesel-electric are not a new idea. It’s the system powers modern locomotives and super large capacity trucks used in open pit Electric motors are useful in applications because they can be up to just about any size, and produce maximum torque at RPM — Just the ticket to get a freight train moving.

The question to ask is whether an electric makes sense for a Jeep. is lots of low speed torque for obstacles, and having two electric means you can make it home if you trouble with one. The motors also work to the vehicle, so mechanical brakes have to be as large.

Extra care would to be given to waterproofing the motors for crossings, but once properly the electric motor could you across a water obstacle the need for snorkle or raised exhaust outlet.

This of diesel-electric hybrid doesn’t a transmission, since the electric can run from stop to the Jeep’s top without the help of gear I’m curious why Jeep a mechanical low range to the Renegade. it allows the electric motors to be lighter and more efficient in use of power.

The US military is experimenting with that have electric at each wheel. This no axles or drive shafts. You create the effect of a mechanical by electronically matching the RPM of the wheels on sides of the truck.

The military how quiet the electric vehicle is and how low its signature is when running on power.
