Picking the plug-in hybrid Renegade over its petrol or diesel counterparts will almost always be a decision taken with running costs in mind. The 4xe should prove cheaper to run in all aspects apart from insurance for private buyers, while company-car users benefit from favourable Benefit-in-Kind rates. Jeep also offers a very competitive warranty (plus roadside assistance) and fixed-price servicing deals, so ownership should be a fairly painless experience. 

Jeep Renegade 4xe plug-in hybrid insurance group

Entry-level Longitude cars sit in insurance group 21, Limited trim is in group 22 and top-spec Trailhawk is in group 25. This means the Renegade 4Xe will cost a little more to insure than the Kia Niro PHEV, which occupies groups 14 and 15 depending on specification.  

Warranty

As with all Jeep models, the Renegade comes with a competitive five-year/75,000-mile warranty and five years' roadside assistance. The Renegade's Kia Niro PHEV rival can't really be beaten here, however, due to its seven-year/100,000-mile warranty. This won't make much difference on an average three-year lease, however.

Servicing

Exact service intervals aren't available, but Jeep offers a number of maintenance plans to help spread the cost of servicing, with fixed costs and complementary smaller services depending on the selected plan.

Road tax

As a plug-in hybrid, the Renegade 4xe gets a £10 discount on the regular £165 road tax (VED) rate for non-hybrid cars. Owners will therefore pay £155 a year after the first 12 months on the road.
