Jeep confirms that at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in 2022 it will present the first all-electric model of the brand – Jeep Avenger, a compact SUV.
The presentation of this model is scheduled for October 17 at 16:00 Central European time.
According to the company, customers in some European markets – in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands – will be able to book tickets for the Avenger after the press conference. Other markets will follow (the UK in January 2023). Outside of Europe, the Jeep Avenger will also be available in Japan and South Korea.
Jeep says the Avenger is “the right size” for the European market. Its target mileage is estimated at 400 km in the WLTP test cycle and 550 km in the urban one. That’s all we know at the moment. The production of this model will be carried out at the Stellantis plant in Poland.
Jeep already offers two plug-in hybrid models in Europe: the Jeep Compass 4xe and Jeep Renegade 4xe, which will be joined by Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe in early 2023.
However, the brand’s future is 100% electric, as the company has set a goal to offer only battery-powered models in Europe by 2030. By 2025, Jeep will introduce four models with electric motors in Europe – some of them will be offered worldwide.
