Dodge / Ram
During its post-Cerberus, pre-Fiat era, Chrysler produced the Jeep Patriot EV concept car; it had a claimed 400 mile driving range (with 40 miles on batteries, and the rest with a “range extender” gasoline engine). The claimed 0-60 mph time was around 8 seconds.
The front fascia was separate and body-colored, to help set the grille apart. Unique wheels gave the Jeep Patriot EV a wide stancer; the interior used elements from the refreshed 2009 Jeep Patriot.
The Jeep Patriot EV used an electric-drive motor, lithium-ion batteries, and a small gasoline engine with an electric generator to extend the range when needed.
