Fully electric Jeep Avenger confirmed for Australia, priced from $53,990

Jeep Australia has confirmed the all-new Jeep Avenger is arriving later this year. It will come in as the brand’s first battery electric vehicle (EV).

Designed and crafted in Europe, the Avenger is actually available with petrol and hybrid powertrains overseas. Strangely, Jeep launched the electric version first and then introduced the petrol models. Either way, it promises the brand’s DNA, blending off-road capability, functionality, and technology, in a compact yet muscular package.

Paired with its dynamic and nimble exterior is a practical and modern interior, featuring a 10.25-inch Uconnect touch-screen system showcasing Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as selectable widget layouts for the main screen. Either a 7.0- or 10.25-inch digital screen makes up the gauge cluster, depending on the variant.

Speaking of which, three variants are joining the Aussie lineup, including the Longitude, Limited and Summit. All feature a 400V electrical system, with a 54kWh battery providing a range of 396km. The maximum charging capacity is only 100kW, but then again, the battery is relatively small by EV standards.

As such, full charging times vary from over 26 hours using a household socket, down to 7 hours and 58 minutes for a 7.4kW AC socket, 5.5 hours for an 11kW system, and around 24 minutes at the max 100kW rate with DC power to go from 20-80 per cent.

The Avenger is based on Stellantis’s eCMP2 platform, and features a new electric motor built by eMotors (a Stellantis 50-50 joint venture with NIDEC). It produces 115kW and 260Nm, mounted at the front axle for front-wheel drive only.

Equipped with Selec-Terrain and hill-descent control, this electrifying SUV isn’t just meant for the city streets. Jeep says ground clearance is 209mm at the lowest point (where the engine bash plate sits) and 223mm to the battery plate. The underbody is also completely flat, which means it won’t snag protruding bits of terrain.

Interestingly, the Jeep Avenger weighs just 1520kg. That’s very light for an electric vehicle, let alone an SUV. However, this is a clue as to how small this package is. It measures 4.08m long, making it the smallest Jeep on sale. It’s even smaller than the old Jeep Renegade, which measured 4.25m in length.

Showroom arrival is scheduled for Q4 this year, with prices starting from the following (excluding on-road costs):

2025 Jeep Avenger Longitude 54kWh FWD: $53,990
2025 Jeep Avenger Limited 54kWh FWD: $57,990
2025 Jeep Avenger Summit 54kWh FWD: $63,990
