Chrysler Showcases Electric Vehicle Concepts
At the 79th International Motor Show in Geneva, Chrysler showcased its electric vehicle future with the European premieres of the Chrysler 200C EV concept vehicle and Dodge Circuit EV prototype.
The company recently unveiled these two vehicles – along with the new Jeep Patriot EV, the updated Chrysler Town & Country EV and the updated Jeep Wrangler Unlimited EV – reinforcing a commitment to developing and bringing to market a broad array of advanced electric vehicles for the Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge brands.
With 40 miles of all-electric range, the 200C EV is capable of a 400-mile total driving range, according to the company.
Dodge showcased the newest version of its all-electric sports car: the Dodge Circuit EV. Featuring new fearless Dodge front and rear designs and a new Dodge interior, the Dodge Circuit EV boasts a range of 150 to 200 miles with zero gasoline consumption and zero tailpipe emissions.
ENVI is an empowered, cross-functional, nimble team that can move quickly and has access to the vast resources within Chrysler to allow rapid proliferation of electric-drive vehicles.
Chrysler will apply its ENVI electric-drive technology to each of its brands and to its front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive and body-on-frame four-wheel-drive platforms.
The result of ENVI's Electric Vehicle technology is a completely new driving experience that delivers instantaneous acceleration and responsiveness. The electric-drive technology enables a new standard of quiet, smooth and efficient operation.
ENVI's Range-extended Electric Vehicles can travel 40 miles on battery power alone using zero gasoline and producing zero tailpipe emissions. A small internal combustion engine and integrated generator produce electricity that extends the range to 400 miles.
