Jeep will make the ram series pickups hybrid suvs

American automaker Jeep intends to develop a hybrid engine for the Jeep Wranger series. In turn, the engineers of the concern claim that the platform of the SUV is too compact to fit the batteries as well. However, safety rules will not allow the battery to be placed under the floor. In this case, the risk of damaging batteries when driving off-road increases too.

For the Ram series pickups, Jeep engineers will also have to use something new. The basis can be taken engine, which intended to create a Jeep Wrangler. The SUV should turn into a "soft hybrid." A small electric motor will only slightly help the internal combustion unit, but will not be able to set the machine in motion on its own.

Perhaps the first hybrid Jeep may be released in 2019. The new generation of SUVs of the Wrangler series promise to show in January next year, and to launch it into production in the autumn of the same year.
