Jeep says its new Avenger electric SUV can run for up to 550 km on a full charge


  • The Jeep Avenger EV has a WLTP-certified range of 400 km
  • Jeep is also planning to release the Wagoneer S, the Recon, and another unnamed EV in the future
  • The Jeep Avenger EV will make its debut in Europe by mid-2023

After briefly showing off the new Jeep Avenger EV, the company has now shared more information on the range as well as the powertrain of the compact electric SUV. Based on the Stellantis STLA Small platform, this automobile has the distinction of being the automaker’s smallest EV yet. Don’t hold your breath for an Indian release timeline, however, as the EV is expected to make its debut in Europe by mid-2023.

Divulging details on the hardware of the new Avenger EV, Jeep said the motors will be capable of delivering 260 Nm and 154hp. The EV will be available in four-wheel drive and standard two-wheel drive configurations. Autocar India reports that the automobile will also include the Jeep Selec-Terrain off-roading modes, complemented by Normal, Sport, Snow, Mud, and Eco modes.

The 54 kWh battery onboard the Avenger also comes from Stellantis, which can reportedly run for up to 400 km (WLTP) on a single charge. But the company goes a step further in claiming that the EV can run for up to 550 km on a full charge as long as road conditions are decent. Fast charging is included too, with Jeep claiming the Avenger can recharge from 20 to 80% in just 24 minutes using a 100 kW charger.

Jeep is also gearing up to release three more EVs, including the Wagoneer S, the Recon, and a yet-to-be-announced EV. While the Avenger EV is the company’s entry-level EV, the Wagoneer S is positioned at the top of the hierarchy. Meanwhile, the Jeep Recon is a callback to the retro Jeep, featuring a robust body and an open-top design. While Jeep hasn’t shared all the details on the hardware of these new EVs, it is reported that the Recon would feature a similar powertrain/battery combination as the Wagoneer S.
