Under the hood, are two powertrains: the e-HYBRID and 4xe. The e-HYBRID powertrain is front-wheel-drive (FWD) only and manages the propulsion system between full electric, hybrid, and internal combustion engines in an automatic way, according to the 48-volt battery state of charge, driving conditions, and other parameters monitored in real-time. The Jeep e-HYBRID is able to deliver full electric propulsion at launch, at low speeds, when cruising, and in parking maneuvers. This solution is designed to auto-recharge the 48-volt battery: it automatically recovers energy while braking or decelerating. This means freedom from external recharge, nevertheless being capable of EV propulsion.

The 4xe powertrain utilizes both the electric and an internal combustion engine, where the increased torque generated by the electric propulsion system and the ability to adjust it with extreme precision ensures even greater four-wheel-drive (4×4) capability on any terrain, for challenging off-road adventures. Simultaneously, it is the ideal vehicle for everyday driving in the city as, thanks to the PHEV electric technology, CO2 emissions are lower than 50 g/km in hybrid mode and the cost of ownership is reduced.
