Why is hybrid more expensive?

There are two main reasons. The first is why exactly O compass 4xe is a hybrid. As a result, the mechanical assembly has a series of new featuressuch as the electric motor itself, the battery, the alternator and all the electronic management equipment.
As in electric vehicles, Batteries are among the most expensive components. In the case of the Compass 4xe, it is 11.4 kWh. It’s smaller than an electric-only model, but larger than a plug-in hybrid.

The second reason is that O compass 4xe is not released in Brazil, like other versions. Hybrid configuration is done only in one factory: located in Melfi, Italy.
Purchased from the parent company in foreign currency (dollars or euros) and depreciated, the operation also ends up being of little benefit to the Brazilian branch. In Italy, the Compass 4xe S Series with the same equipment level cost around 50 thousand euros. In simple conversion, R $ 260 thousand.
Definitely a Brazilian Jeep pays less than a “typical” customer.. But it is also necessary to consider that the costs of bringing the Compass from Italy to Italy are higher.
Account in favor of Jeep that the hybrid version is exempt from the 35% tax. and industrial goods tax, IPI, which it ranges from 11% to 20% for electric vehicles and hybrids. It does not avoid another tax, the Goods and Services Tax (ICMS). In São Paulo, for example, the rate is 14.5%.
From the value after taxes and freight costs, it is important to include the profit of the Jeep itself and the dealer. So, we reached R$ 349,990.
