Jeep Avenger Arrives At Paris Motor Show With 249 Miles And 154 HP

During 4xe Day held on September 8th, Stellantis revealed several electric products, including the first Jeep EV. Thankfully, we finally have some technical specs to coincide with the public debut taking place this week at the Paris Motor Show. A forbidden fruit in the United States, the Avenger 2023 has a single motor that produces 154 horsepower (115 kilowatts) and 260 Newton-meters (191 pound-feet) of torque.

The e-motor draws its essence from a 54 kWh battery that Stellantis makes in-house. It’s rated at 400 kilometers (249 miles) of range in a combined WLTP cycle but you should be able to squeeze in 550 kilometers (342 miles) during city use alone. Once out of juice, the lithium-ion pack can be recharged from 20 to 80 percent in 24 minutes provided you use a 100-kW connection. If you’re in a hurry, a three-minute charge is enough to cover a distance of 30 kilometers (19 miles).

Jeep says the newly developed battery has been tested for more than two million kilometers (1.24 million miles) and is installed under the front and rear seats and the center tunnel. The new Avenger measures just 4.08 meters (160.6 inches) long, making it 16 centimeters (6.3 inches) shorter than the already small Renegade. It provides a ground clearance of 200 millimeters (nearly eight inches) with an approach of 20 degrees and a departure angle of 32 degrees.

For practicality, the Jeep Avenger has a cargo volume of 380 liters (13.4 cubic feet) behind the seats, plus 34 liters (1.2 cubic feet) of front storage. It is the company’s first front-wheel drive based vehicle to get Selec-Terrain and Hill Descent Control, with six driving modes to choose from: Normal, Eco, Sport, Snow, Mud, and Sand. A dual-motor, all-wheel-drive variant is also planned.

Positioned below the Renegade in Jeep’s growing lineup, the Avenger 2023 will be manufactured at the Tychy Plant in Poland and will be sold in Europe, Japan, South Korea and other markets. It’s available for preorder starting today on the Old Continent where the Launch Edition comes with all the bells and whistles.
