Yesterday, Jeep® opened up ordering for the all-new, all-electric Avenger (JJ) at dealers in select countries across Europe (Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, and Poland). Since its debut at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, customers could only book their reservations online for the exclusive launch edition.
So far, Jeep has reported that over 10,000 Europeans have pre-book one of the exclusive models.
Even though Europeans can now walk into a showroom and order a new Avenger, they still can only order one of the Avenger 1st Edition launch models at the moment. But that shouldn’t disapoint those wanting to jump on the bandwagon early.
The Avenger 1st Edition features a two-tone livery painted in Sun Yellow, Granite, or Volcano Black with a Volcano-painted roof. The launch edition model is enhanced by privacy glass, 18-inch aluminum wheels that highlight its personality on the road, and front and rear full LED lights. The interior includes multi-color ambient light and a yellow dashboard fascia; premium heated black seats with yellow accents; a heated windshield; a padded cover for the central console; a height-adjustable cargo floor and a hands-free power liftgate.
The 1st Edition also features a 10.25-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. There is also a 10.25-inch full-digital cluster for the driver and a wireless smartphone charging pad.
In Italy and Spain, the 1st Edition is available in both BEV and internal combustion engine (ICE) configuration. But for those across Europe who get a BEV version, the 1st Edition is equipped with Level 2 ADAS systems which help drivers to maintain their speed, the distance from the vehicle ahead, and the center of the lane in a completely autonomous way.
Capping off the refined equipment package, there are, automatic air conditioning, the Blind Spot System, an auto high beam, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-foldable and heated side mirrors, 360° parking sensors with a rear camera with drone view, and Mode 3 cable for public recharging.
Sales will continue to be available in Italian, French, German, Spanish, and Beligian markets. Using the online process, customers can opt to completely purchase their vehicle over the internet.
As for pricing, in the Italian market, the Avenger 1st Edition has a starting price of €26,900 (or about $28,314 USD) for the ICE model or €39,500 (or about $41,576 USD) for the BEV model.
