In addition to Germany, Jeep dealers are also accepting orders in Italy, France, Spain, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal and Poland. The electric car can also be purchased online in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Belgium.
The Avenger uses an electric motor with 115 kW, which is combined with a 54 kWh battery (50.8 kWh net). These are exactly the same parameters as the Peugeot e-308, e-208 and DS 3 E-Tense – the latter two models will be updated for this purpose, the e-308 and its station wagon offshoot will be launched with this drive generation right from the start. Jeep gives WLTP consumption figures of 15.8 kWh/100 km. Up to 392 kilometres (combined) according to WLTP should be possible.
The battery can be charged with up to 100 kW DC. The charging time from 20 to 80 per cent is 24 minutes. From the other Stellantis models, it is known that the standard charging process from ten to 80 per cent should take 30 minutes. The AC charging power is 11 kW.
With a length of 4.08 metres, the Avenger has been developed “specifically for the needs of European customers”. Jeep is particularly targeting the fast-growing B-SUV segment. In terms of size, the Avenger was positioned as a new entry-level model, as it is another 16 centimetres shorter than the Renegade.
The Stellantis brand had introduced the Jeep Avenger in mid-October and accepted reservations for the ‘1st Edition’. Since then, Jeep is said to have received 10,000 reservations. This variant is a fully equipped model, which can be ordered in Germany at a price of €39,900 as of now. Currently, the configurator gives an expected non-binding delivery date of 7 July 2023 to 6 August 2023. It is unclear when the Avenger will also be available in other equipment variants.
