The all-new, all-electric Jeep® Avenger (JJ) has been honored with the prestigious Autovista Group Residual Value Award for Small Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs). The Avenger stood out among 26 contenders in the Small BEV category, impressing judges with its performance, range, and quality. This recognition reinforces the Jeep brand’s commitment to the mass-market adoption of electric vehicles, particularly in Europe.
The judges declared the recently-launched Jeep Avenger as the top performer in the Small BEV category. This compact SUV, measuring approximately 161.4 inches in length, offers a WLTP-combined range of 245 miles, making it one of the leaders in its segment. Its high residual value was attributed to exceptional quality and unique positioning within the B-segment, according to Eric Laforge, Head of the Jeep Brand in Enlarged Europe.
The Jeep Avenger boasts a WLTP range of up to 249 miles (400 km), which increases to 342 miles (550 km) during city driving. With fast-charging capabilities, the battery can be charged from 20% to 80% in just 24 minutes. Even a quick three-minute charge provides 19 miles of range, making it convenient for those on the go.
Recognizing the diverse needs and expectations of the European market, Jeep designed and developed the Avenger specifically for this region. Its production began at Stellantis’ Tychy plant in Poland, ensuring a regional approach that caters to the unique preferences of European customers.
Autovista Group experts conducted an in-depth analysis of used-car market data from February to April 2023 to identify the European residual value champions. The experts focused on mainstream models, excluding those with extreme horsepower and price points. The Jeep Avenger emerged as the winner with a remarkable indexed residual value performance in France, Hungary, Austria, and Belgium.
