Chrysler goes electric

Today Chrysler announced in a press release the introduction of its new ENVI team, which is a cross-functional team within Chrysler, strategically intended to develop electric-drive production vehicles and related advanced-propulsion technologies.

The intent behind creating the ENVI team is to establish a small, nimble team that will be able to move quickly and have access to the vast resources within Chrysler to allow rapid proliferation of electric-drive vehicles and to permit Chrysler LLC to develop a new generation of environmentally responsible Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep vehicles.

To read more and see video of the unveiling on CNBC, check out the ChryslerGoesElectric site.

Also if you would like to see specifics on EV for each brand visit ChryslerLLC blog home page.

Some key points tied with the introduction of ENVI, Chrysler LLC plans to have:
  • At least one model to be produced in 2010 for consumers in North American markets, and European markets after 2010
  • More than one hundred electric vehicles on the road in government, business, and development fleets in 2009
  • Electric-drive technology applied to front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive, and body-on-frame four-wheel-drive platforms
Cheers,

Will

I'd buy one of those electric Jeeps if they made them, or maybe one of those yellow Dodge cars... looks promising!

The two-seater looks like they have been talking to the Tesla people, and that wouldn't be a bad thing.

I just read in the Detroit Free Press today that it's built through an alliance with Lotus, but the car hasn't been named yet.

I just saw the "production version" of the Chevy Volt that GM showed recently.... and I've got two words: Chrysler Nassau!


Chevy's Volt looks nearly identical to Chrysler's Nassau concept from a few years back! What the crap!?

Especially those headlights!
