While the first deliveries to customers in Europe are still being made, the Jeep Avenger, which is the first 100% electric Jeep SUV, has won the title of "best family SUV" in the field of the 2023 Women's World Car of the Year (WWCOTY) award.
In the 13th edition of the awards, the compact B-SUV from Jeep was one of 13 finalists in the "family SUV" category. An all-female international jury from 45 countries chose it as the winner.
Marta Garca, the Executive President of the WWCOTY, made the announcement. She said, "I think the Jeep Avenger is a worthy winner in its category." On the one hand, it has all the history and fame of the Jeep brand. On the other hand, it's completely electric. "Customers will appreciate this commitment to the future." The Women's World Car of the Year is the only car award in the world that is decided solely by female automotive journalists. At the WWCOTY awards, vehicles are judged on how well they do in their segments. Jurors look at safety, quality, price, design, how easy it is to drive, benefits, and how it affects the environment. This year, the jurors' work has been influenced by how the industry is changing toward more efficient and environmentally friendly models.
"We are thrilled and honored that this international group of auto writers chose the first all-electric vehicle from the Jeep brand to win this major award in the family SUV category. I want to thank the judges for giving an award to our new SUV, Jeep's first 100% electric car. The Jeep Avenger is a big part of our plan to make the brand the leader in zero-emission SUVs worldwide, which is part of our global electrification strategy." The fact that the Jeep Avenger won in a category with so much competition at the WWCOTY awards shows how good she is.
The new Jeep Avenger is a small SUV that is only four meters long. It fits into the fast-growing B-SUV segment and is the second most popular SUV in Europe in terms of volume. The Jeep Avenger was made for active people who want a small SUV, but it still has a lot of space and storage options.
The Jeep Avenger was designed and built to be a Jeep from the start. It is a small SUV with a unique capability, style, functionality, and technology mix. It uses a new electric powertrain that combines a special 400-volt electric motor with 115 kilowatts and 260 Nm of maximum torque with a new 54 kWh battery. The Avenger has an electric range of up to 400 km and over 550 km in the city.
The Jeep Avenger's release in Europe is the start of the next step in the Jeep brand's plan to make all of its cars electric. By 2025, four all-electric Jeeps will be on the market. By the end of 2030, all Jeep sales in Europe will be electric.
The Jeep Avenger was first shown at the Paris Motor Show in 2022. Since then, both customers and industry experts have liked it. In fact, in January 2023, it was named European Car of the Year 2023, and more than 12,000 units were sold. Orders for the first edition will begin on December 1, 2022. Since last month, you've been able to place orders for the whole range, which is simple and complete and has all the features of the Jeep Avenger at the entry level: links. It's also available in Italy with a gasoline engine. The monthly payment for the full-electric version of the new Jeep Avenger is 249 euros, and the price for the 1.2-liter gasoline engine is 199 euros. @via WWCOTY.
