Chrysler Exec Confirms Hybrid Car Research Program
It looks like it won’t be very long before Jeep will start offering hybrid-powered models. While the off-road specialist brand has relied so far on traditional technology to make sure its vehicles can handle serious off-roading, stricter emission regulations will force it to adopt some form of electric assistance in the future.
“We are absolutely looking at different things in that field and we are very active behind the scenes in the development of these systems and how it fits into our profile,” Chrysler’s Asia-Pacific product planning manager, Steve Bartoli, told Australia’s Drive.
“With greenhouse gas and regulatory constraints around the world, it is definitely pushing our hand in that way but we haven’t made any decisions on that and we’re not ready to talk about that,” the executive added.
