Jeep debuted the Avenger e-Hybrid, a moderately electrified 1.2-liter vehicle with additional features, for European consumers. Although the Jeep Avenger was the brand's first ever electric vehicle to go into production, more alternatives have since been added to the portfolio.
New additions to the list of available features for Jeep's smallest SUV include the Open-Air Sky Roof and a leather-wrapped massaging driver's seat. A tailpipe and the green "e" badge on the tailgate allow you to visually differentiate the MHEV from the EV.
Stellantis' most recent mild-hybrid technology, which is already present in Peugeot, Citroen, and Opel vehicles, is incorporated into the Avenger e-Hybrid. A 48-volt lithium-ion battery, a 1.2-liter three-cylinder petrol engine with a turbocharger, and an electric motor included into the new 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (e-DCS6) make up the powertrain. Jeep did not disclose the aggregate power output, although the electric motor generates 28 horsepower and 55 Nm and the gasoline engine provides 99 horsepower and 205 Nm.
As long as the speed is less than 30 km/h, the Jeep can operate exclusively on electric power for up to 1 km. Additionally, if there is still sufficient battery power, it can park only after the combustion engine is turned off.
According to Jeep, the MHEV uses 5.1 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers. In addition, it can achieve an average CO2 emission reduction of 111–114 g/km, or up to 15% less than the non-electrified counterpart.
The Eco, Normal, Sport, Snow, Mud, and Sand driving modes can aid with traction on more slick surfaces, even if the SUV is only offered in FWD configuration.
Orders for the Jeep Avenger e-Hybrid will be accepted beginning at the end of November in all European markets. The price will be revealed closer to the product's release, although we anticipate it to be less expensive than the completely electric alternative.
