Unveiled at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, Jeep Avenger has made its official debut becoming the first-ever fully electric vehicle from the American auto giant.
While everyone is talking about the powertrain and design of the recently debuted Jeep Avenger, there are 5 unique features that are hidden in plain sight. Note that Jeep is now under the purview of the Stellantis Group which is a conglomerate of myriad car marques. Jeep has already launched plug-in hybrid models but the Avenger compact EV will be the first fully-electric model on sale in Europe by the end of this year. Note that the 1st edition model has sold 8,000 units already.

5 Unique Features of Jeep Avenger
- Dual Front Grilles – While EVs typically don’t have any grilles, the Jeep Avenger has two! There is an iconic seven-slot grille flanked by LED headlamps and there is another emblem hidden inside the grille essentially making it a dual-grille arrangement.
- A Hidden Handy Compass – Then there is also a concealed compass at the place where the radar sensor is positioned. In fact, it points to the city of Turin, Italy, where the EV is designed.
- Child Silhouette on Windshield – For the auto aficionados with a keen eye, there is a miniature graphic of a child with a telescope looking at the night sky on the edge of the windshield. On the opposite corner of the windshield, there are stars that the child is gazing at.
- Mountain Silhouette on Rear Windshield – Then there is a silhouette of the mountains on the rear windshield, perhaps indicating the adventurous nature of the application of a Jeep SUV.
- Ladybug on Roof – Finally, there is also a ladybug moniker planted on the roof moulding of the Avenger electric SUV. These are nature-inspired design elements you would find on the EV.
