sam's compass hopefully I can do that.
I may be overseas when that comes out, so I don't know how I would be able to trade it in.
Thanks for the info!

arudlang It would be a full custom job. You'd need people with electrical engineering knowledge, mechanical prowess, and fabrication experience. Unless you can do it all yourself there is not the slightest hope of recovering the cost in fuel savings. If you can do it yourself, potential to break even at best. It isn't something you would get into to save money, it would have to be your passion.

If you mean specifically installing the parts for the planned 2020 hybrid version, there is no way that would be cheaper or easier than simply buying a 2020 hybrid version. Just wait for that one to come out and trade up. Dealerships LIVE for us to come in and trade up.

I'm expecting that would translate to about 8 for the Compass with the way it is designed.

At any rate, I did some research and I found EV conversion videos, and one 1989 Jeep Cherokee full conversion, but I am either looking for a full engine replacement option or a bolt-on Hybrid.

Does anyone have any information about this?
Considering even changing something as simple as the headlight bulbs (from HID to LED) or the radio screen to something different on a 2nd gen Compass is a hassle, I dont think a hybrid conversion is possible unless you are willing to strip down the car and install a custom made hybrid system with custom electronics and etc. You wont be able to get any electronic (including drivetrain components) or software made by Mopar to work with a hybrid conversion.
