Jeep Avenger 2024: electric small SUV with 400km of range confirmed for Australian release


The Jeep Avenger is the first battery-electric Jeep and it will be powered by a 115kW/260Nm electric motor 

Jeep Australia has confirmed that the new all-electric Avenger will be coming to Australia during the second half of 2024. 

The brand’s first electric model, the Avenger rides on the same e-CMP platform as the Peugeot e-2008 and the Citroen E-C4, meaning the Avenger does not run on a dedicated EV platform. The Avenger will be offered locally with petrol engines, too. 

For the fully electric versions, the battery pack is located under the front and rear seats and in the central tunnel (where the transmission usually would be). 

This is the new Jeep Avenger which is coming to Australia next year

The new Avenger was unveiled fully in April 2023 with a relatively small 51kWh battery and a range of around 400km (WLTP), however Jeep states that the Avenger can do up to 550km per charge “in town”. 

Jeep claims that the new Avenger will use roughly 15.4kWh/100km of electricity on average. 

The new BEV from Jeep is set to compete with the likes of the upcoming new-generation Kia Niro EV and the BYD Atto 3.

Pricing and further specifications are to be announced closer to the vehicle’s on-sale date. 

Interested customers can register their interest on the Jeep Australia website. 

What sort of standard equipment will be available?

The new Jeep Avenger will come fitted with a 10.25-inch centre touchscreen and the option of either a 7.0- or 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. 

Both electric and petrol variants will be available globally

Most of the Australian specifications are yet to be determined, however we can look at the UK specs to see what Australians might get. 

In the United Kingdom, the Jeep Avenger is available in three variants: Longitude, Altitude and Summit. 

The entry-level Longitude will feature 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, a 10.25-inch touchscreen and full LED headlights while the Altitude adds in welcome extras such as adaptive cruise control and 17-inch alloy wheels. 

Three variants will go on sale in the UK, which could be the same for Australia

The high-end Summit builds on these features with larger 18-inch alloy wheels, a hands-free electric tailgate and 360-degree parking sensors. 

It’s likely that Australian buyers will be sold in Australia at a higher level of specification, to suit the tastes of our local market.
