Jeep Electric

​Benefits of driving electric

Want to know about the advantages of electrified motoring? 

Enhanced space - Because the vast majority of EVs don’t require a transmission tunnel, they have a flat floor which creates more space for passengers.
Lower maintenance costs – EVs are more affordable to maintain than regular vehicles because an electric powertrain features fewer moving parts than a combustion engine, which means it’s less likely to go wrong. Furthermore, since EVs use regenerative braking, there’s less wear and tear on brake pads. Also, EVs don’t require oil.
Eco-friendly - A 100% electric vehicle (EV) such as the Jeep Avenger produces zero harmful emissions, which means it’s very kind to the environment, wherever you happen to travel.

Types of electric/hybrid vehicles explained

Want to know about the differences between electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid? Let’s find out…

    Electric The Jeep Avenger is extremely efficient and produces zero harmful emissions because it runs purely on electricity thanks to a high-capacity battery that provides an electric motor with its energy. EVs require manual charging which can be done at home, at work and at one of several thousand UK-wide public charging stations.
    Plug-in hybrid A PHEV is powered by a combustion engine and an electric motor, the latter of which is energised by an on-board battery. Though not quite as affordable to run as EVs, PHEVs are nonetheless very efficient, and they produce low emissions too. PHEVs require manual charging.
    Full hybrid A full hybrid electric vehicle (FHEV) derives most of its power from its combustion engine. However, an electric motor provides plenty of support (such as instant torque) and allows pure-electric motoring at low speeds and when coasting. FHEVs offer self-charging convenience too.
    Mild hybrid A mild hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) is one step up from a regular, combustion-engined vehicle, and though it benefits from an electrified boost, it can’t run on electricity alone. MHEVs are self-charging.


    Our frequently asked questions are covered below. If you have any queries of your own, please don’t hesitate to contact the friendly, knowledgeable Jeep Solihull or Swindon teams.

    Are all electric cars automatic?


    In almost every case, yes.

    What is a hybrid car?


    While most hybrid cars run mainly on fuel, the engine is boosted by an electric motor, which is energised by a self-charging battery.

    What is a plug-in hybrid?


    While a plug-in hybrid such as the Renegade 4xe PHEV runs on fuel, it also offers an all-electric range (up to 26 miles in the Renegade’s case). This means it’s very fuel-efficient and produces fewer emissions than a hybrid or purely combustion-engined equivalent. Plug-in hybrids require external charging.

    How long does it take to charge an electric car?


    It takes roughly 24 minutes for the Jeep Avenger to receive a 20% to 80% charge using a rapid-charging public connector.

    Should I buy an electrified car?


    If you want to save money on fuel while contributing towards a greener planet, yes. If you’d like to know more, please get in touch with the Jeep Solihull or Swindon teams for impartial advice.

    How does an electric car work?


    An electric vehicle such as the Jeep Avenger is powered by an electric motor which is provided energy by a high-capacity battery. Electric vehicles are very affordable to run, they produce zero CO2 and NOx emissions, and they require manual charging.

    How does a hybrid car work?


    Of all the kinds of electrified vehicles, a hybrid is closest to a conventional car. This means that while, say, the Jeep e-hybrid runs mainly on fuel, it can operate on electric power at low speeds and when coasting. Hybrid vehicles offer self-charging convenience.

    Are electric cars better for the environment?


    Absolutely. The Jeep Avenger produces no harmful emissions at all.
