Live from Detroit!: Chrysler goes EV 24/7
And no, not the PBS kid’s show.
Seemingly having drunken enough EV Kool Aid to sink a Ram pickup, here in Cobo Hall, Chrysler unveiled a restyled and renamed (now Dodge Circuit) version of its Lotus Europa-based EV sports car (above left), and added a Jeep Patriot EV (above right) and a future big sedan (below) to its already not-ready-for-prime–time EV stable.
Powered by a completely electric Chrysler ENVI drivetrain, Chrysler claims 0-96 km/h in less than 5 seconds and a top speed of more than 193 km/h.
Seeing the lead other automakers have in the hybrid EV game, don’t expect any of these Chrysler green machines to go on sale any time soon.
