The Renegade is coming back with a vengeance.

Jeep CEO Antonio Filosa revealed during the Stellantis Investor Day that the next generation of the subcompact SUV will be offered in an all-electric model priced under $25,000.

Production of the Italian-built Renegade for the U.S. was discontinued last year.

Jeep confirmed in May that a $25,000 model was in the works, but didn’t specify the nameplate.

Jeep currently builds the all-electric Avenger in Poland, which is six inches shorter than the original Renegade, but has no plans to export it to the U.S.

At the launch of the street-focused Jeep Wagoneer S, which will be manufactured at Stellantis’ Toluca, Mexico, factory later this year, Bill Peffer, the head of Jeep’s North American operations, intimated that the $25,000 model could be built there as well when he pointed to the Compass manufactured at the factory as an example of an affordable Jeep.

Mexican production would qualify the all-electric model for the $7,500 federal tax credit. It is not clear if Filosa is factoring that into the $25,000 cost of the model, or if that is its projected list price. An internal combustion engine version will also be offered.

Filosa didn’t announce an exact date for the new Renegade’s launch, but Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares recently said that the $25,000 model would be coming soon. Details like power and range have not been released.

The Wagoneer S will be Jeep’s first EV sold in the U.S. and is debuting in a top-of-the-line $71,995 Launch Edition trim with 600 hp and 300 miles of range.

It will be followed by less expensive trims and later this year Jeep will unveil the production version of its Recon, which is a serious off-road EV that is build on the same platform as the Wagoneer S.
