The All-Electric Jeep Avenger SUV

Jeep, though currently owned by the automotive conglomerate Stellantis, is originally an American automotive company. The genesis of the Jeep brand is from the requirement of a vehicle for the Second World War. As they say, the rest is history! Jeep has had multiple owners to include, American Motors Corporation (AMC) and Chrysler. Of course, we in India are already familiar with the Jeep brand!

For those not familiar with the Stellantis group, it was formed in 2021 by merging Fiat Chrysler Automotive (FCA) and the PSA Group. Stellantis N.V. commands an impressive portfolio of automotive brands, to include: Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Citroën, Fiat, Maserati, Peugeot and more!

Jeep has remained true to its original creation, in that, it focuses primarily on the development and sale of sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Jeep envisions four battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) by 2025, with only pure electric vehicles from 2030. The company’s current portfolio of electric vehicles (EVs) include:

  • The all-electric Avenger
  • Renegade plug-in hybrid
  • Compass plug-in hybrid
  • Grand Cherokee plug-in hybrid

Better late than never, may not always hold true, but in the case of Jeep’s entry into the all-electric SUV segment, this certainly holds true. It is not often, that a late entrant has the potential to make a ‘dent’ in a fiercely competitive incumbent market, but early indications are that the Jeep Avenger, the first battery-electric vehicle (BEV) from the automotive manufacturer will do just that!

Since its launch, the pure electric SUV has received a number of accolades, to include, Car of The Year 2023, Best Family SUV, Electric Car of The Year and more! The Avenger, dubbed ‘JJ: Junior Jeep’ at concept stage, was first shown in September 2022, and then also at the Paris Motor Show in October 2022. Interestingly, the name Avenger has been previously used by Chrysler on two occasions.

For families keen on the popular SUV body style, but in a more manageable and compact environmentally-friendly electric vehicle, the Jeep Avenger (B-Segment) is well suited. In fact, the Avenger electric (4.08m) is also the company’s most compact vehicle to date. Perfect for those families living in towns ands cities. The EV is built on the e-CMP2 modular electric platform. The Avenger has been designed in Europe and is also being built in Europe.

The Avenger has a 54 kWh onboard EV battery (usable capacity: 51 kWh). Not surprising, given the compact dimensions of the electric car. The battery pack consists of 17 modules and 102 cells. The manufacturer claims a zero-tailpipe emission electric range up to 400 km (WLTP) on a single-charge.

Even adjusting for real-world driving conditions, the pure electric Avenger should be able to deliver up to 340 km on a single-charge. Certainly more than ample for most day-to-day driving needs, to include, city ands motorway driving. The EV also incorporates a heat pump as standard, which according to Jeep, ‘increases the range by up to 10% in extreme hot and cold conditions’.

Though some of the more recent electric cars offer DC charging capability up to 350 kW DC, the 100 kW DC charging offered by the electric Avenger is adequate, given the size of the onboard EV battery. The EV can be charged 20% – 80%: 24 minutes at 100 kW DC.

Of course, EVs are mostly charged at home, overnight. We at e-zoomed recommend installing a solar compatible EV charger like myenergi zappi, along with battery storage and an on-site PV system. This ecosystem is an excellent way to leverage the benefits of electric driving: zero-tailpipe emissions and financial savings!

The fully-electric Avenger incorporates a 3-phase 11 kW AC onboard charger as standard. For those with access to three-phase EV charging, the EV can be fully charged in 5 hours and 30 minutes. Single-phase EV charging will take 7 hours and 30 minutes.

Though the electric Avenger is only available as a front-wheel drive (FWD), it is the first FWD from the manufacturer to be equipped with Select-Terrain and Hill Descent Control, giving the EV some off-road capability (200mm ground clearance, approach angle: 20 degrees, departure angle: 32 degrees). Given that the primary market for the e-SUV is not off-road use, the front-wheel drive is adequate!

The electric SUV can achieve 0-100 km/h in 9 seconds (maximum power: 156 hp/ torque: 260 Nm). The top speed of the EV is 150 km/h. There are three driving modes: Normal, Eco, Sport. The EV offers regenerative braking, but not one-pedal driving.

Safety ADAS features available as either standard, or as options are: blind spot monitoring, autonomous emergency braking, automatic parking, 180-degree rear camera with drone view, level-2 autonomy and more! The e-SUV has yet to be certified by Euro NCAP. Other technology includes: Android Auto and Apple Car Play, 10.25’’ Uconnect™ system, 10.25″ digital cluster and more!

In terms of exterior styling, the Avenger electric is instantly recognisable as a Jeep, except for styling changes suitable for a battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). The EV has an appealing exterior and a good balance between a traditional and futuristic look. The styling of the interior echoes the exterior colour on the dashboard. Certainly attractive.

The five-seat five-door compact SUV offers ample legroom and headroom, but for taller adults seated at the back, expect a squeeze. The middle seat is also a squeeze. The EV offers physical controls for climate control, which is most welcome! The EV offers a 355 L boot, not as large as some of its rivals. The EV does not offer a frunk.

Bottom-line, electric driving is good for the environment and the wallet!

Top Reasons To Buy An Electric Vehicle (EV)

Never have the reasons to buy an electric car been more compelling, than in 2023. The past decade has witnessed a significant maturity of all types of electric vehicles (EVs), to include, battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).

A BEV, also known as a pure electric car, is propelled using energy stored in an EV battery via an electric motor. While a PHEV uses ‘hybrid technology’, to include, an internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electric motor, to propel the vehicle.

One of the primary differences between a BEV and a PHEV, is that, a pure electric car, like the best-selling Tesla Model 3, has a much longer zero-tailpipe emission electric range, compared to a plug-in hybrid electric car, like the Toyota Prius PHEV.

The reason is simple: a BEV has a much larger onboard EV battery. In general, the latest BEVs have a zero-emission range between 150 to 500 km on a single charge, while PHEVs average closer to 50 km. Given the significant increase in electric range, improvement in EV charging infrastructure and attractive government grants, BEVs are fast becoming the preferred type of electric vehicle to own!

In India, we have also witnessed an increase in the availability of pure electric cars. Some of these include: the all-electric BMW i7, the all-electric Kia EV6, the all-electric BMW iX, the all-electric BYD ATTO 3 and many more! Expect this momentum to increase significantly, as more EV automotive manufacturers cast an eye on the Indian automotive market!

Top Reasons To Buy An Electric Vehicle (EV)
Lower tailpipe emissions and lower air pollution i.e. improves air quality in the immediate area.
Significantly cheaper to recharge a full EV battery, compared to filling a full tank of petrol/ diesel.
Cheaper to drive per km, compared to an internal combustion engine petrol/ diesel car.
Lower maintenance costs, compared to aninternal combustion engine petrol/ diesel car. Pure electric cars have fewer moving parts, so less can go wrong!
Lower noise pollution,compared to aninternal combustion engine petrol/ diesel car. Noise pollution is as detrimental on health, as air pollution!
A vast range of fantastic EV available on sale, for all budgets and aspirations. EVs have come a long way since the introduction of the first generation all-electric Nissan Leaf in 2010.
Attractive government subsidies to support the uptake of electric cars. Take advantage while still available.
