The charge to turn Jeep into a global electric car brand continues with the launch of the all-new Avenger 4×4 in Paris.
Stellantis surprised at the Paris Motor Show today when they officially revealed an all-new electric crossover packed with forward-looking “Jeep” styling cues and a great-looking off-road stance courtesy of aggressively knobby AT tires that pack the new car’s wheel wells.
We think it’s the best-looking compact the brand’s trotted out since the original Liberty 20-odd years ago … and it may be even better-looking than that. For their part, the brand’s press people see it, too. “Externally, the 4×4 Concept features tow hooks, wider fenders and track, and is equipped with larger, exposed and more aggressive tires,” reads the official release. “To further enhance the capability of the Jeep Avenger, the approach angle has been improved to 21 degrees, departure angle to 34 degrees and breakover angle to 20 degrees, thanks to the ground clearance which now exceeds 200 mm.”
“The Avenger has been designed as a Jeep vehicle from the outset, and the all-electric [4×4] model already offers some of the best-in-class capabilities that identify the Jeep brand,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep brand CEO. “The Avenger has been designed as a Jeep vehicle from the outset, and the all-electric 4×2 model already offers some of the best-in-class capabilities that identify (the brand).”
“Here in Paris, we have shown that we have a full portfolio of new all-electric 4×4 capable Jeep models just around the corner,” concludes Meunier. “[We continue] with a clear goal in mind: to become the number one electrified SUV brand in the world as we continue our path towards achieving our mission of Zero Emission Freedom.”
The Avenger joins the recently released Recon electric crossover that is set to come to US shores in the years ahead. The 4xe PHEV models are currently the hottest selling Jeeps in several markets.
