Jeep continues its plans to become the “number one electrified SUV brand” with the introduction of its first all-electric vehicle, the Avenger. The rugged SUV maker says its new EV concept carries the Jeep brand into the future with “best-in-class capabilities” for on- and off-road driving.

In September, the Stellantis-owned Jeep teased four new all-electric models will be launched in the US and Europe by the end of 2025.

Jeep is known for making rugged vehicles with exceptional off-road capabilities, which the automaker plans to bring into the new era of electric vehicles. The company is based on four values ​​- freedom, adventure, authenticity and passion – as it targets the electric car market.

At the Paris Motor Show on Monday, Jeep said it will use these values ​​to propel the brand into an all-electric future, revealing new details behind its flagship EV model.

The automaker said last month that the Jeep Avenger will be the first electric car to hit the European market, with plans to hit showrooms in 2023. Meanwhile, while most automakers present their biggest models in electric versions, Jeep goes the other way, as the Avenger is designed for all terrains – off-road and in the city. Jeep Europe chief Antonella Bruno said during the release:

The all-new Avenger offers Jeep capabilities suitable for the European market. This modern, fun and emotional SUV will appeal to a growing number of customers who are looking for a powerful, compact, modern and fully electric Jeep brand, an alternative to the current players.

During the press conference of the Jeep brand, CEO Christian Meunier talked about their first all-electric model and how they want to keep the characteristics that make the Jeep brand, saying:

The Avenger was designed as a Jeep vehicle from the start, and the all-electric 4×2 model already offers some of the best-in-class capabilities that identify Jeep brand. But we couldn’t help but wonder, what if we packed the all-wheel-drive electrification capabilities of the Jeep brand into a compact package while still maintaining the brand’s unique design language, capabilities and personality?

The new Avenger is a small compact SUV model at just 160.6 inches long, smaller than the Jeep Renegade. The front 400V electric motor produces 156 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. torque.

The 54 kWh battery provides up to 250 miles on the combined cycle, but can reach up to 340 city miles. It will be based on Stellantis’ modular CMP platform, which is mainly used for small electric vehicles such as Peugeot e-2008.

Jeep claims its new EV can charge from 20% to 80% in 30 minutes with 100kWh DC fast charging.

Externally, the electric model completely resembles the appearance of a classic Jeep SUV with a signature radiator grille with seven slots, thin LED lights and aggressive tires. However, Jeep has added thicker bodywork, 200mm ground clearance and integrated headlights to increase its strength and off-road capabilities.

The electric Jeep Avenger is ready to drive on any terrain with several different driving modes for different conditions (snow, mud, sand, etc.) using Selec-Terrain and Hill Descent Control technologies.

European buyers in select markets can pre-order the Avenger ahead of its launch early next year.
