The automaker said the compact Avenger was the first introduction in a range of “capable, fully electric vehicles right sized for Europe” and also “a key component in a global electrification strategy as the brand moves towards becoming the world leader in zero-emission SUVs”.

European Avenger specification includes standard Selec-Terrain and Hill Descent Control which, with claimed “outstanding approach and departure angles and the vehicle’s ground clearance, bring impressive levels of capability into the segment”.

The SUV has a new 400 volt electric propulsion system which combines a new 156hp electric motor with 260 Nm of torque and a new 54 kWh battery pack.

The Jeep Avenger EV is the first all electric vehicle worthy of the Jeep brand. However, it is not expected to sell in the North American market. The Avenger the first Jeep to be produced in Poland.

With a 52kWh battery and urban range of 340 miles (550km) the Avenger is not only the first Jeep branded electric vehicle, ever, anywhere, but it is also the smallest since the World War II Willys.

In a world where most EVs are fat and heavy, the Jeep Avenger bucks that trend, while still providing a family-friendly passenger compartment and a decent size truck.

Interestingly, there are no plans to sell the Jeep Avenger, the 2023 European Car of the Year, in North America.

The new medium-size Fiat e-Scudo electric van

Fiat e-Scudo

DrivingElectric »

The Fiat Scudo name has been revived for a new medium-sized van, available to order from December 2021 and priced from £35,720 (CDN$61,000 / USD$47,300) before VAT in fully electric ‘e-Scudo’ form. If it looks familiar, that’s because it’s a near-identical sister model to the Citroen e-Dispatch, Peugeot e-Expert, Toyota Proace Electric and Vauxhall Vivaro-e – joint winners of DrivingElectric’s 2022 Best Medium Electric Van award.

As it shares drivetrain technology with those models, the e-Scudo gets a 134bhp electric motor and a choice of 50 or 75kWh batteries, for driving ranges of 143 and 205 miles respectively, along with 100kW rapid-charging capability for swift battery top-ups on the go.

Two main versions of the e-Scudo are being offered at launch: the short-wheelbase 50kWh battery model comes in the Tecnico trim and has an on-the-road-price of £35,720 before VAT, while the long-wheelbase 75kWh battery model comes in Business specification and is priced at £43,050 on the road, excluding VAT.

The Citroën, Fiat, Peugeot, Toyota, and Vauxhall electric vans share the same Stellantis mid-van platform and technology, and are equally responsible for raising the bar in their class.
