The Jeep Avenger 1st Edition, the brand’s first all-electric model, will be available from £36,500, with pre-orders now open. The launch of the full Jeep Avenger range will be in June.

The compact SUV, with 156hp and 260Nm of torque, has an electric driving range up to 248 miles and can rapid charge at up to 100kW, alllowing a 0% to 80% charge in just over half an hour.

The Avenger is equipped with Hill Descent Control and SelecTerrain, which offers six modes: Normal, Eco, Sport, Snow, Mud and Sand. Jeep says that the Avenger has “outstanding approach and departure angles and ground clearance”, but the car is only front-wheel drive rather than four-wheel drive.

The European Car of the Year 2023 winner is available in a choice of three colours (Sun, Graphite and Volcano), all with black roof, privacy glass and 18-inch alloy wheels. The Avenger also comes with a three-year vehicle warranty (or battery warranty of 100,000 miles or eight years).
