At the car plant in Tychy (formerly Fiat-Chrysler), the Stellantis Group has started regular production of the Jeep Avenger. The fully electrified vehicle is the first Jeep produced by the car company in Poland. The Jeep Avenger is a vehicle from the B-segment of SUVs. The vehicle was named “Car of the Year 2023” at its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show.
The Jeep Avenger is the first of three new electric and hybrid models to be produced in Tychy by Stellantis. Previously, the standard Fiat 500 model was produced there, as well as the related Abarth 500 model and the Lancia Ypsilon. Last year, 167,000 cars were produced there, of which 115,000 were Fiat 500s. Following the merger of Fiat-Chrysler with French carmaker PSA (Peugeot, Citroen) to form the Stellantis Group, which was completed last year, and the restructuring of production, the Stellantis plant in Tychy will produce the new electric and hybrid models of the Fiat and Alfa Romeo brands. At the Stellantis plant in Gliwice, on the other hand, which specialized in the production of the Opel Astra for more than two decades, passenger car production was discontinued. At the restructured plant in Gliwice, Stellantis now produces vans in various model variants, heights, and lengths on a uniform platform. These include the Peugeot Boxer, Citroen Jumper, Fiat Ducato, and Opel Movano.
