Default Jeep's First EV Will Be Called the Avenger—and Isn't Coming to America

Jeep's First EV Will Be Called the Avenger—and Isn't Coming to America

Smaller than a Jeep Renegade, the all-electric Avenger is headed to Europe.


Jeep has named its first electric SUV. Nope, it's not called "Jeepster," either, as some (okay, us included) speculated. Instead the small EV Jeep will be named Avenger, a moniker pulled from the Chrysler family's defunct name hat; this one hails from Dodge, where it last was affixed to a mediocre midsize sedan.

The Jeep Avenger is quite different. A tiny electric crossover smaller than a Jeep Renegade, it is so small that it will not be sold in North America. It'd be eaten alive by, say, machinery such as the massive full-size Jeep Wagoneer and other behemoths that roam American roadways.

The Avenger will be shown to the public on October 17 at the Paris auto show, and reservations will be taken starting that day. The little Jeep goes on sale in Europe in early 2023 and will also be offered in Japan and South Korea, though it will be built in Tychy, Poland.

What's the driving range? About 400 kilometers (250 miles). The Avenger uses the STLA Small platform, the smaller version of the EV-capable platform soon to proliferate throughout Stellantis' global lineup.

Though it might not seem very "Jeepy," the Avenger expands the breadth of Jeep and is designed for a specific customer. The team had fun designing a crossover to tackle the urban jungle, said Stellantis chief design officer Ralph Gilles.


Four Electric Jeeps Planned For Europe

This is the first pure electric Jeep of the four planned for the European market. The Euro EV Jeep lineup will eventually include the Wrangler-inspired Jeep Recon and the Jeep Wagoneer S midsize SUVs that will launch first in North America in 2024, before branching out to Europe and other regions.

We first learned about the little electric Jeep in March when Stellantis gave an overview of its long-term plan and revealed design renderings of the little guy. It portends a very electrified future. By the end of the year, the full Jeep lineup will be electrified to some degree in most European markets. By 2030, all Jeeps sold in Europe will be electric. Stellantis has plans to electrify vehicles across its 14 brands under its Dare Forward 2030 plan.

I mean, sure, they announced this small CUV targeted at the european market, but they announced 2 other EV's that make a little more sense for our market...

Recon: intended to be as capable as a wrangler


Wagoneer S

The Recon makes perfect sense and is in retaliation to the Bronco. It will be independent suspension and body on frame. With the open roof and ability to remove doors, and still be trail rated and an EV, it will check a ton of boxes. I would consider selling my Wrangler Rubicon 4xe.

I’m a little lost. The bronco was fords answer to the wrangler. Why would this be their answer to the Bronco?

It should be the tailpipe emissions that will produce electric power, so this has no advantage in America.

The Bronco is the better everyday street vehicle because it's body on frame and has an independent suspension. The Wrangler is old school with solid axles and not body on frame and is made for off-roading. Most people that buy these vehicles do little off-roading and a Recon would be more than capable if it's trail rated. I think Jeep is trying to offer a better daily driver option.
