New: Jeep Avenger / Recon / Wagoneer S: Electric into the woods

The Avenger is Jeep's first crossover to herald the electric age in Europe. By the end of the decade, the American carmaker wants to become completely electric on this side of the Atlantic. At the same time, the share of electric models in the home market should be at least 50 percent. "Based on the success of our electrified 4xe portfolio in North America and Europe, we are developing the highest-performing and most sustainable Jeep SUVs yet on our journey to becoming the world's leading zero-emission SUV brand," said Jeep CEO Christian Meunier helping ensure that millions of Jeep fans around the world continue to have a planet to explore, embrace and protect.”

In addition to the new Avenger, Jeep is showing two other electrically powered vehicles, the Recon and Wagoneer S, which are intended to form the backbone of the future range, especially in the USA. Building on the success of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle in the United States, and the recently introduced Grand Cherokee 4xe, the off-road brand from the Stellantis Group is focusing almost entirely on electric mobility. Jim Morrison, Jeep brand leader in North America: "By the end of 2025, our entire lineup will be electrified, including four fully electric vehicles competing at the heart of the market." This electrification plan will also expand the Wagoneer family at the higher end of the portfolio The purely electrically powered Wagoneer S is to compete in the upper middle class, while the Wagoneer models in the upper class will be equipped with plug-in drives that should enable a combined range of 800 kilometers.The new Jeep Wagoneer S performs in its top version 441 kW / 600 hp and offers an electric range of 650 kilometers.

One of the first electric models for North America is the off-road model of the Jeep Recon, which offers real off-road capability with electric differential locks, underride protection and studded tires and scrambles in the footsteps of the original Wrangler with a power top and removable doors and glass panes. "The new, all-electric Jeep Recon is capable of traversing the mighty Rubicon Trail, one of the most challenging off-road trails in the United States, and arriving at the end of the trail with enough range to drive back to town and recharge." , emphasizes Christian Meunier. Market launch is planned for 2024. The compact Jeep Avenger, which is to be launched in Europe and other markets such as Japan and South Korea, will be positioned below the Renegade and produced at the Stellantis plant in Tychy / Poland one battery charge is 400 kilometers.
