Jeep unveils three new BEV models; the Avenger to debut as their first EV

Jeep has unveiled three new all-electric vehicles–the Recon, the Wagoneer S, and the Avenger–as the first products in its BEV portfolio. The Avenger, a compact SUV, will be the company’s first ever EV to roll out globally (specifically for the European and Asian markets) in 2023, and the new Wrangler-inspired off-road EV–the Recon–and the new flagship Wagoneer EV (code named the Wagoneer S) will be launched in North America by 2024.

Jeep Avenger

Jeep plans to roll out the Avenger in the first quarter of 2023, but it will be limited to the European and major Asian markets. The Avenger will be built in the company’s high-efficiency plant in Tychy, Poland, and it will make its global debut at the Paris Motor Show on 17 October 2022. 

The Jeep Avenger is a compact SUV based on the Stellantis’ STLA Small platform, and the vehicle will be even smaller than the sub-compact Renegade. The Avenger will be powered by a 60-65 kWh battery–mated to a 70 kW motor–that provides an estimated range of around 400 km on a single charge. The SUV will be offered in two- or four-wheel drive options. 

Jeep Recon

The new Recon will be the company’s first all-electric model in North America and is slated to launch in 2024. The 4×4 BEV is based on the Wrangler and will inherit characteristics from the four-door Wrangler Unlimited; the Recon will come with removable doors and a large cloth sunroof that allows the entire roof to be opened with one touch.

Jeep has not revealed any details on the Recon’s powertrain and specifications; however, the new electric off-roading SUV will get the company’s own Selec-Terrain management system, e-locker axle technology, under-body protection, tow hooks, and aggressive off-road tyres. Furthermore, the EV will come with the latest generation Uconnect system, including detailed travel guides of the most notable off-road trails. 

Jeep Wagoneer S

The all-new electric Wagoneer S is a mid-size SUV and the smallest in the Wagoneer family. The model gets a unique, aerodynamic design, and the 4×4 capability comes as standard along with the all-terrain management, advanced Jeep brand-focused technology, and high-performance powertrain.

The company says the all-new SUV will be powered by a 450 kW motor that makes the vehicle go from 0-100 kmph in 3.5 seconds. Furthermore, the electric SUV will provide an estimated range of around 640 km on a single charge.
