Jeep will showcase its new Jeep Avenger, the brand’s first-ever battery electric vehicle (BEV), at the 2022 Paris Motor Show (Mondial de L’Automobile 2022). Jeep says the stand will display an energetic, vibrant and visually dynamic look featuring a rock-crawling display to provide the right staging for the first public reveal of the Jeep Avenger.
The Jeep Avenger electric vehicle (EV) will deliver a targeted range of 250 miles and features a modern and technologically advanced interior, with plenty of space for people and cargo.
Christian Meunier, Jeep CEO, said: “The new Jeep Avenger spearheads the introduction of a portfolio of all-new Jeep BEVs in Europe. It offers Jeep brand capability that is rightsized for the market and during its introduction at the Paris Motor Show, we’ll showcase why it is a great all-electric Jeep brand alternative to current players in the segment.
“The Jeep Avenger is a milestone for our growth plans in key European markets, such as France, and on our path to becoming the leading zero-emission SUV brand in the world.”
The new Avenger will be revealed during a press conference hosted by Christian Meunier, the Jeep Brand CEO, at 1pm (BST) on October 17.
The Jeep Avenger will join the UK line-up which includes the Wrangler and 4xe versions of the Jeep Compass and Renegade. It will also be followed early next year by the launch of the 4xe version of the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee.
In countries, including, Germany and France, the Jeep brand offers only electrified SUVs, and the full Jeep SUV portfolio in continental Europe already offers electrified models.
The Jeep 4xe plan, revealed in September, builds upon this 4xe momentum, calling for the development of a portfolio of capable, fully electric vehicles for Europe.
im Morrison, head of Jeep brand North America, said: “With the continuous expansion of the 4xe technology across our entire portfolio, we are redefining freedom and adventure in a way that only the Jeep brand can.
“By the end of 2025, our full lineup will be electrified, including four all-electric vehicles competing in the heart of the marketplace.”
The brand will introduce four zero-emission vehicles in Europe by 2025, with offerings in the main volume segments, including the Jeep Recon and the Wagoneer “S”, two all new and all-electric vehicles that will compete in the global mid-size SUV segment.
As a result of this product onslaught, all the Jeep vehicles on sale in the region will be 100 per cent electric by 2030. This is great news for a company that built its reputation on big gas-guzzling 4x4s and proves that performance can be delivered in a clean and sustainable way.
