  • How much power does the Jeep Avenger make?

    The Jeep Avenger makes 156hp.
  • What is the estimated range of the Jeep Avenger?

    The Jeep Avenger has an estimated range of 400km in the WLTP cycle.
  • Designed and built as a Jeep vehicle from day one, the Jeep Avenger packs the Jeep DNA into a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) with a unique combination of capability, style, functionality, and technology to satisfy the needs of ever-connected customers.

    “The new Jeep Avenger represents a key milestone for the brand as it is the first of a portfolio of all-new Jeep BEVs to be introduced in Europe. It offers Jeep brand capability that is rightsized for the European market and at the Paris Motor Show, we are showcasing why it is a great all-electric Jeep brand alternative to current players in the B-SUV segment,” said Jeep Chief Executive (CEO) Christian Meunier.

    Powering the Jeep Avenger is a new generation 400-volt (V)electric propulsion system that combines a new electric motor and a new battery. The second-generation 400V electric powertrain is the first one to be launched by Emotors, a joint venture between Stellantis and Nidec Leroy-Somer Holding. It supplies 115 kilowatts (kW), equivalent to 156 horsepower (hp), and 260Nm of maximum torque.

    The new 54-kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery, which is also produced by Stellantis, offers a high energy density and an excellent ratio between nominal and usable energy. Specifically, the battery pack is made up of 17 modules and 102 cells utilizing NMC 811 Lithium-Ion chemistry and delivers 400 kilometers (km) of range in the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) cycle, which becomes 550km in the urban cycle.

    The battery, which was tested for over two million kilometers, is extremely compact, and non-intrusive. It is placed under the front and rear seats and the central tunnel. Furthermore, it is protected by a high ground clearance and underbody skid plates during off-road driving.

    Recharging the new Jeep Avenger is extremely simple. Via a 100kW Mode 4 cable in direct current, connected to fast public charge, three minutes of charge is enough to provide a travel distance of 30km. Charging the battery for 24 minutes is sufficient to take it from 20 percent to 80 percent charge.

    “The Jeep Avenger is the first zero-emission SUV for the Jeep brand. It will be the new entry point to the Jeep range and will allow us to complete our SUV coverage and we expect it to become the bestselling model in our portfolio by 2024. Avenger adds another level of electrification to our offering and represents a further step in the Jeep brand’s evolution,” commented Jeep Europe Head Antonella Bruno.

    “Jeep Avenger is emotional, fun, cool and it stands out from the crowd,” she added.

    The Jeep Avenger arrives in European showrooms early next year, but customers in most European markets can already pre-book the exclusive Launch Edition, an eye-catching, fully equipped version. UK customers will be able to place reservations from January 2023 and can register their interest at Jeep UK’s website.
