Yes, Geneva has no shortage of performance. More than 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts) is undeniably cool. But while only a few absurdly wealthy clowns will enjoy their overpowered, overstyled, and overpriced supercars, it’s stuff like the new plug-in Jeep Compass and Renegade that will have a far greater impact on our roads. These two CUVs are but the start of a trend that will see automakers start adding usable, all-electric range – 31 miles in the case of these cute utes – to gas-powered vehicles that normal people actually buy. The Compass and Renegade are far from exciting, but at the very least, they’re about to get a lot more interesting.
