I think that it is clear that FCA is going to be making hybrids of some kind. Do you think that any of them will be Jeeps? That extra torque would be nice for towing and off-roading.

What is clear, FCA can't make them affordable, double plus no one wants them. Well no one who thinks mind you. Hybrids just don't pay back for the added cost, not to mention the dubious background inputs that are conveniently ignored because we're saving the planet don't you know. .

Plus, the the process of making batteries for hybrids is way worse then the running of gas engines.

the mining alone is disgusting especially as China is basically the monopoly. There was a story a few weeks back that the production of the very products designed to eliminate pollution were actually spurring it forward. I believe that is the definition of irony.

What Fiat-Chrysler paired with another company in order to make hybrid models instead of doing all the R&D themselves. Even if its not for Jeep, a hybrid Chrysler 200 would definitely sell.

Jeep was fine with hybrids and were test a hybrid wrangler in 2008 (http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...-based-plug-in) when along comes Marchione from FIAT who wants to sell vehicle with small gas engines through the Chrysler dealerships after a disastrous FIAT marketing effort 20 years earlier with their excellent performing and handling but shoddy construction of the 124 line. FIAT still lags behind the industry in EV and hybrid tech. But at least Marchione is forced by US Govt refs to let Chrysler Jeep complete their hybrid plans.

If the Renegade could go 0-60 in 7 seconds and 31 miles all electric then I would definitely pay 3-5 thousand extra. I drive 75% city so I would save a couple thousand a year just in fuel costs.

I didn't buy my Renegades for a fast 1/4 mile.
And 31 miles is just about 1/2 way to a typical commute for me.
