A wave of new electric vehicles is coming and Chrysler is joining the flow. At the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show this week, Chrysler’s parent company Stellantis made a big commitment to EVs, announcing that Chrysler will launch its first all-electric vehicle by 2025 with plans for “a full battery-electric portfolio” by 2028.
Chrysler (and other brands under the Stellantis umbrella) have a lot of catching up to do on the electrification front. Currently, Stellantis offers just the plug-in Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid — the only plug-in minivan on the market — as well as a 4xe plug-in hybrid version of the Jeep Wrangler, with a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe PHEV on the way.
What will Chrysler’s first all-electric vehicle be? It hasn’t been announced, but the brand did debut the all-electric Airflow Concept at CES, which could hint at its plans for a production EV. Chrysler says the swoopy four-door concept is equipped with Level 3 autonomous driving capabilities and connected vehicle technology. It estimates the concept could deliver 350-400 miles of range but didn’t announce production plans.
“The Chrysler Airflow Concept represents the start of the brand’s journey toward a fully electrified future. It is the result of a thoughtful synthesis of the full arsenal of Stellantis’ connected vehicle technology — inside and out,” said Ralph Gilles, chief design officer of Stellantis.
Stellantis is just one of a host of automakers pledging to electrify their lineups in the coming years. Check out our list of the new EVs planned by 2025.
