Inside, the Jeep Treo provides space for three passengers or 'two-plus-gear' in a cabin that creates an open feel in what is a truly compact vehicle. Underneath, Treo is based on an all-new platform designed to utilise drive-by-wire technology and a zero-emission fuel cell - or other advanced powerplant of the future - along with an electric drive powertrain that gives Treo full-time four-wheel drive capability.

The Treo's front end presents a bold new Jeep signature and provides fresh insights on the classic Jeep 'face'. Treo then tapers front-to-back in a tear-drop shape, to end with two high-mounted spar wings that house rear lamps and serve as mounts for twin high-tech Jeep Rubicon mountain bikes - the perfect equipment for tomorrow's active young consumers. The rear hatch with a large cutout notch provides easy access to rear storage.Jeep ruggedness is signalled by the flared wheel arches that give the over-sized tyres plenty of play, tow hooks exposed on the front end, and the 'precision tool' look of the headlamps and mirrors. The military-style tyre tread, exposed front suspension and the hiking boot tread detail on the sill plate all enhance the vehicle's adventurous image.

Jeep Treo's interior continues the simple, honest Jeep look. The steering wheel and column, pedals, speedometer and other instruments are housed in a single, sculptured module. The entire module slides through a slot in the dash for quick adaptation to right- or left-hand driving, extending Treo's reach to world markets. The radio, global positioning satellite locator and climate controls with touch-screen operation are housed in a second, removable module. Lightweight seats are made of translucent material over a strong carbon fibre frame. The rear seat folds flat for storage of additional gear. Another configuration allows for the front wheels from the Rubicon bikes to be removed and mounted in the rear of the interior, while still allowing a third passenger to ride along. Despite the vehicle's compactness, a feeling of openness is maintained in the interior by the large windshield, a 'see-through', seven-slotted Jeep front grille, and a glass roof that extends over the rear passenger space.

Jeep Treo is powered by two electric motors driving the front and rear wheels, giving the vehicle full-time four-wheel drive capability. For the future, Treo is designed to adapt to new technologies, such as drive-by-wire, fuel cells or other advanced powertrains.
