Chrysler has just released a few details about their 2008 Jeep Renegade Concept car. With design cues reminiscent of vehicles in the computer game Halo the SUV uses nanotech enabled lithium ion batteries to suppliment the hybrid engine.

2008 Jeep Renegade Concept

The 2008 Jeep Renegade Concept is a sporty B-segment-sized two-seater ideally suited for the all-weather delights of off-roading and dune surfing. Featuring a cut-down speedster windshield, a roll bar, openings in the door lowers and a hose-out interior, it is an “eco-friendly” vehicle with minimized use of materials – designed for those who want to enjoy the earth while taking care of its future. The propulsion system combines a 40-mile lithium-ion battery pack and a small-displacement BLUETEC diesel engine. The result: fuel economy of more than 110 miles per gallon.
