The Jeep Avenger, the brand’s first all-electric production vehicle, debuted at the 2022 Paris Motor Show. Designed for the European market, the small SUV is based on the Stellantis, with a front-mounted electric motor and a WLTP range of 400 km (249 miles).

Jeep has already shown Avenger design at the Jeep 4Xe day last month, but now we’re getting a massive gallery showing the model from every possible angle, along with interior shots and an announcement of its specs.

The Jeep Avenger is based on the eCMP architecture, as is the Peugeot e-2008, Opel Moka-eand Citroen DS3 E-Tense, though it’s the most compact of the bunch, measuring 4,076 mm (160.5 in) long. This figure makes it 154 mm (6.1 in) shorter than the Renegademaking it a new entry point to the Jeep range.

The SUV is equipped with a front installation of a 400-volt electric motor with a capacity of 154 hp. (115 kW / 156 hp) and a torque of 260 Nm (191.8 lb-ft). These numbers coincide with many other electric vehicles from the Stellantis portfolio, but Jeep says the second-generation electric motor is the first to be produced by Emotors, a joint venture between Stellantis and Nidec Leroy-Somer Holding.

Energy is stored in a battery with a capacity of 54 kWh, which is installed under the front and rear seats and the central tunnel. Jeep claims a WLTP range of 400 km (249 miles) in the combined cycle and up to 550 km (342 miles) in the urban cycle, where the EVs are most efficient. Using a 100kW Mode 4 cable and a fast charger, the battery can be charged from 20-80% in 24 minutes or extend the range by 30 km (19 miles) in three minutes. A full charge takes 5.5 hours when connected to a regular wall box using an 11kW Mode 3 cable.

Despite earlier rumours, there is no mention of an all-wheel drive option yet, and the zero-emissions Avenger is currently only a front-wheel drive model. However, we have seen prototypes of the SUV with visible exhaust pipes, which means we should expect ICE-powered variants in the near future.

The Avenger may be a civilized B-SUV, but Jeep hasn’t forgotten its origins. As such, the model offers the best ground clearance in its segment, sitting 200mm (7.9 inches) off the ground, and at the same time has good SUV angles thanks to its short overhangs. In particular, the approach and departure angles are 20 degrees, and the departure angle is 32 degrees. The model also comes standard with Jeep’s Selec-Terrain (with Normal, Eco, Sport, Snow, Mud and Sand modes) and Hill Descent Control.

The Jeep Avenger will be manufactured at the Stellantis plant in Tychy, Poland, following a recent investment. The model is already available for pre-orders, with a market launch expected in early 2023. The company suggests that the Avenger is the first of a complete “portfolio of capable, all-electric vehicles” that will be “right-sized for Europe.” , which confirms the release of four electric vehicles by 2025. Antonello Bruno, head of Jeep Europe, expects the Avenger to be the best-selling model in the Jeep portfolio by 2024.
