Is Jeep Avenger EV Available In The United States?
You might be considering, “If the Jeep Avenger Electric is such an impressive compact SUV, why hasn’t it made its way to the U.S. shores yet?” You’d think, but there’s a caveat. Jeep has made the Avenger only for Europe. EV with no intention to sell it within America. United States. The reason? The reason is that the Jeep CEO Christian Meunier thinks it is too small to be a viable option for the American electric vehicle market.
“There is no real market potential in North America for SUVs of that size,” Meunier stated to TechCrunch. It’s also worth noting that a large number of European countries provide government subsidies for electric vehicle buyers. Furthermore, Jeep plans to take advantage of this incentive to boost its sales numbers. However, there seem to be no plans to launch the “European Car of the Year” winner in the United States. At present, Americans can only admire the car from afar and pray that Jeep will release a similar model, or even better, shortly.
The most important factor that determines the Avenger’s popularity in Australia is its cost. It’s going to need to lure buyers away from similar-sized electric SUVs such as those of the BYD Atto 3 and forthcoming Ford Puma EV, although it is more rugged and off-road-focused design unlike the two. In the UK pricing for the Avenger starts at the price of PS35,700 which amounts to more than $71,000 in Australia.
