The future of Jeep starts from the Avenger: the brand’s first Full Electric SUVwe had seen it in passing last March, when the CEO of Stellantis Carlos Tavares had included it in the presentation of the strategic plan Dare Forward 2030. We find it today, now in its final form, when Jeep presents the second phase of its electrification strategytwo years after the introduction of its first plug-in hybrid in Europe Compass 4Xe and Renegade 4xe.
The official launch of the Jeep Avenger will take place on October 17th at the Paris Motor Show, when reservations will also open at the same time, but in the meantime the company wanted to show it together with 2 other new full-electric vehicles both destined for North America in 2024: the Jeep Recon, devoted to off-road, and the Jeep WagoneerPremium SUV with 600 hp and 650 kilometers of autonomy.
Jeep Avenger, young and feminine
For now, of the Jeep Avenger we only know that it has up to 400 km of autonomy and that it was developed on the STLA Smal platformL. As this is the most compact version of the Stellantis electric platform presented in July 2021, together with the STLA Medium, Large and Frame versions (for trucks and pick-ups), it should therefore have a battery of approximately 84 kWh. With a modern and dynamic design and hi-tech equipment, it will maintain its off-road vocation thanks to its height from the ground and good off-road and attack angles. Aimed at a young and female target, the Avenger will be introduced in Europe (where Italy is the most important Jeep market) and in countries such as Japan and South Korea; it will be positioned under the Jeep Renegade and will be produced in Tychy, Poland.
Jeep, four electric SUVs
Returning to the electrification strategy, Jeep plans to introduce four fully electric SUVs (we still don’t know anything about the fourth) in North America and Europe by the end of 2025. By 2030, however, the company expects battery electric vehicles (BEVs) to account for 50% of sales in the United States. and even 100% of sales in Europe.4x and the new 4×4 – said Christian Meunier, CEO of the Jeep brand, to reiterate how the turn towards sustainable mobility represents the future of the brand without giving up anything of its past. This powerful combination of Jeep design, legendary 4×4 capability and electrification – he adds – reshapes the SUV market, allowing more customers in more countries and segments to join us on the journey to Zero Emission Freedom.
