Jeep Avenger Electric SUV: A Game-Changer in the Creta Electric Segment

Jeep has introduced its smallest model ever in Europe, the Avenger, which marks several significant firsts for the brand. The Jeep Avenger is the company’s first Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) and the first Jeep to feature a Front Wheel Drive (FWD) architecture. However, it’s worth noting that there are possibilities of future ICE (Internal Combustion Engine), hybrid, and eAWD (Electric All-Wheel Drive) variants.

The Jeep Avenger made its European debut ahead of a similar offering from the Italian carmaker Fiat, in the form of the Fiat 600. Jeep is gearing up to launch four BEVs by 2025, with the ultimate goal of going fully electric by the end of 2030.

Here’s a breakdown of the Jeep Avenger’s trim levels and features:

Longitude: This is the base trim and includes highlights like 16-inch alloy wheels and rear parking sensors.

Altitude: The Altitude trim adds dedicated silver accents on the dashboard and interiors, premium seats matching its silver accents, a 10.25-inch digital cluster, and a powered hands-free tailgate.

Summit: The Summit is the top-spec trim and comes with full LED headlights, LED tail lights, ambient lighting with multiple colors, 360-degree parking sensors, a rear parking camera with a drone-like feed, a panoramic sunroof, power-adjustable seats with massage function, and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) features with level-2 autonomous driving.

While the prices for the Jeep Avenger Electric SUV have not been revealed, the vehicle is expected to be available in various colors, including Ruby (red), Volcano (black), Stone (sand grey), Lake Sun (light blue), Granite (granite), and Snow (white).

In terms of its powertrain and specifications, the Jeep Avenger EV is built on the e-CMP2 modular electric platform and features a 54 kWh battery produced by Stellantis at the Tychy plant. It’s equipped with a 115 kW (156 bhp) electric motor that delivers 260 Nm of torque to the front wheels. The battery can be charged from 20% to 80% in just 24 minutes using DC fast charging of up to 100 kW power. An 11 kW AC charger provides a 0-100% charge in 5 hours.

Jeep claims a range of 400 km on the WLTP cycle, making it suitable for urban driving. The Avenger also supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and includes features like hill assist and Jeep Selec-Terrain modes.

While there’s no official confirmation of an India launch, the Jeep Avenger could potentially compete in the Indian electric SUV market, which is expected to see the launch of several electric vehicles in the coming years.
