Plug-in hybrid models land with special-edition trim.

Jeep has revealed a ‘First Edition’ special trim for its upcoming plug-in hybrid variants of the Renegade and Compass crossovers.

Offered on the 4x4e cars, this grade offers a comprehensive level of equipment. Keyless entry, electric-folding door mirrors, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, parking sensors and a reversing camera come as standard.

There’s also LED headlights for no extra cost on the Renegade, with the Compass featuring Bi-Xenon units. There are also two packages available for both cars, which alters the alloy wheels. ‘Off-Road’ brings 17-inch units, with ‘Urban’ adding 19-inch alloys.

A choice of five colours is also on offer, while the First Edition models will also come with a mode 3 charging cable and an eight-year battery warranty.

Powering both cars is a 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol engine linked up to an electric motor, with the choice of either 187bhp or 237bhp outputs. An electric-only range of 31 miles is claimed for both cars, with each able to reach speeds of 81mph on electric alone.
