Jeep will Launch the Avenger Electric SUV at the Paris Motor Show

Jeep will have a fully electric stand at the 2022 Paris Motor Show as it presents the new Avenger.

  • The launch will take place on October 17th

  • This model will be a subcompact electric SUV for the European market

  • The brand will become fully electric in Europe in 2030

Jeep chose the 2022 Paris International Motor Show to officially launch the Avenger, its first fully electric model ever.

This upcoming vehicle will be a subcompact crossover only destined for sale in Europe, where the brand aims to offer only EVs by the end of the current decade.

Few details have been revealed about this model, but the company says to expect it to be able to drive 250 miles (402 kilometres) on a single charge.

Jeep didn’t say if this figure is based on the WLTP or the EPA cycle, but the former is more likely since this model is not expected to ever be sold in the US and Canada.

According to the automaker, the Avenger will benefit from the expertise of its engineers in terms of off-road driving, which means that it should be more capable than its rivals despite its small size which will likely be similar to the Renegade.

The Avenger will be the first step in Jeep’s plan to become the leading zero-emissions SUV brand globally.

At the moment, Jeep offers hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the Renegade and the Compass in Europe which are not available in North America.

These models will be joined by the new Grand Cherokee 4xe in the coming months as well as four zero-emissions models by 2025, the first of which is the Avenger.

In North America, customers will have to wait a while longer to see the first fully electric Jeep model in the brand’s showrooms, but the Grand Cherokee 4xe is already here as well as the Wrangler 4xe, which is currently the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle in the United States.
