THE smallest SUV from Jeep has been unveiled in the shape of the new Avenger, a fully-electric compact model.

Due to have its debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, the Avenger is due for release in 2023.

With a targeted range of some 250 miles, Jeep says the new SUV ‘will offer impressive ground clearance, breakover and approach angles for its segment, while delivering a modern and technologically advanced interior, with plenty of space for people and cargo'.

It is part of Jeep's electrification programme which sees the off-road brand offering only electrified vehicles in most European markets.

The Avenger will be positioned under the Jeep Renegade and will be produced in parent group Stellantis' high-efficiency plant in Tychy, Poland.

"The all-new Avenger will offer Jeep brand capability that is rightsized for the European market," said Antonella Bruno, head of Jeep Europe at Stellantis. "This modern, fun and emotional SUV will appeal to a growing set of customers who are looking fora capable, compact, modern and all-electric Jeep brand alternative to the current players."

It will be the first of four electric-only SUVs from Jeep and will joing the upmarket Wagoneer S and the retro-styled Recon as well as a still-to-be named fourth EV.

The Avenger will share much of its underpinnings with other Stellantis SUVs such as the Peugeot e-2008 and Vauxhall Mokka-e.

It is understood Jeep is also planning a combustion-engined version of the Avenger fitted with a 1.2-litre mild hybrid petrol powertrain.
