Thanks to the recent introduction of internal-combustion models, the Jeep Avenger now starts from £23,600, while the EV specifically is priced from £34,800 at the time of writing. 

Jeep claims the base petrol model can return up to 50.4mpg, but we managed to achieve 40.8mpg during our testing, in which we covered close to 350 miles, mostly on motorways.

The mild-hybrid Avenger e-Hybrid offers improved fuel efficiency over the pure-petrol model, with Jeep claiming it will return up to 57.1mpg. We’re yet to see for ourselves what it can achieve in the real-world, but we’ll update this when we do. This version’s CO2 emissions are down slightly on the pure-petrol model: 111-114g/km compared with 127-130g/km.

For business users, the all-electric Avenger attracts the lowest Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rates, plus it is exempt from road tax (VED) and the London Congestion Charge until 2025.

Electric range, battery and charging

The electric Jeep Avenger uses the same battery and motor technology that powers the updated versions of the Peugeot E-2008 and DS 3 E-Tense, among others. Under the floor is a 54kWh battery, 51kWh of which is usable. Jeep says it can provide enough juice to cover up to 248 miles across a mixture of driving conditions. That’s less than cars such as the Hyundai Kona Electric, but still competitive for this size of electric SUV.

During our twin test between the Avenger EV and Mazda MX-30, the Jeep returned 4.3 miles per kWh, trumping the Mazda’s 3.6mi/kWh by quite some margin. We achieve that figure even after some long journeys on the motorway, so we expect to see even better numbers if you spend most of your time driving in town at low speeds. Either way, the Avenger EV comfortably provides 200 miles of range from a charge. 

Speaking of which, the Jeeps’ charging speeds are also on par with most of its main rivals, but again, not class-leading. The Avenger’s 100kW maximum charging speed is still enough for a 20-80 per cent top-up in 24 minutes, though. Fully charging a flat battery at home using a typical 7.4kW home wallbox should take around seven and a half hours.

Insurance groups

Insurance ratings for the petrol and mild-hybrid variants are still yet to be confirmed, but the EV sits in insurance groups 24 or 25 (out of 50), depending on which trim level you go for. That means it attracts similar ratings to the 48kWh Hyundai Kona Electric and facelifted Peugeot E-2008.

Depreciation

According to our latest expert data, the Jeep Avenger will retain 49-52 per cent of its original value after three years of ownership and with 36,000 miles on the clock come trade-in time. The EV version is expected to hold onto the most value compared with the rest of the range.
