Jeep debuted the Avenger EV, the company’s smallest SUV to date, last month. The inside of the Avenger EV as well as its range and powertrain specifications have now been made public by the American automaker. This will be the first product to employ Stellantis’ STLA Small platform, and it will debut in Europe in the first half of 2023.
According to the WLTP cycle, the Avenger EV‘s Stellantis-built 54kWh battery has a 400km range. However, Jeep believes that depending on driving circumstances, the range might reach 550km. A 100kW cable, which will be provided with the car, can reportedly recharge the battery from 20 to 80 percent in 24 minutes. Powerful 154hp, 260Nm motors will be deployed in a dual-motor or quad-motor arrangement to power the EV.
The Jeep Avenger will be one of four vehicles available and sit at the bottom of the range. The Wagoneer S, the highest model in Jeep’s lineup and available in a premium package, will join the Avenger in the lineup. The Recon, the third model in the series, is rumoured to have taken some of its design cues from models like the Jeep Wrangler. In 2025, the Recon and Wagoneer S will be among the first vehicles to use Stellantis’ STLA Large platform. Future additions to the portfolio will include an electric vehicle that has not yet been revealed.
