2021 Jeep Compass 4xe plug-in hybrid revealed, Australian arm 'monitoring market'

It’s been barely a week since Jeep unveiled a 6.4-litre V8-powered Gladiator concept, but in an effort to balance the karmic ledger, the brand has this week revealed a much greener plug-in hybrid version of the Compass small SUV. The new Compass 4xe as it will be known, and the smaller-still Renegade 4xe will be offered in EMEA regions (covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa) and form part of what Jeep is calling its “green evolution”.
