The new Chrysler Airflow Concept made its official debut at CES 2022 today, previewing the American automaker’s first battery-electric production vehicle that will launch in 2025.
The Chrysler Airflow Concept features a dual-motor powertrain with two 150 kW electric drive motors, with one of these motors mounted in the front of the vehicle and another mounted out back. Chrysler did not provide information on the vehicle’s battery size, only saying that the battery pack is “designed to achieve between a 350- and 400-mile range on a single charge.”
Inside, the Chrysler Airflow features a spacious cabin with a “light and calming,” color palette intended to evoke “an open, airy lounge area that delivers a comfortable space between home and work,” the automaker says. A large infotainment screen sits front-and-center in the dash and is joined by a secondary front passenger display and rear passenger displays. The information and apps displayed on these four screens can be personalized by the user and information on the screens can be easily shared with other passengers using a finger swiping motion.
Like most other new EVs, the Airflow Concept features a connected architecture (dubbed STLA Brain by Stellantis), which allows users to “quickly and easily add new and innovative features,” and “enables software developers to create and update features and services quickly.”
Chrysler’s first production EV, which is expected to be a crossover inspired by the Airflow, will launch in 2025. The brand will transition to an all-electric model portfolio by 2028, as well, Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand CEO said this week.
“The Chrysler Airflow Concept represents the future direction of the Chrysler brand, providing a peek at the dynamic design, advanced technologies and seamless connectivity that will characterize the full-electric portfolio we plan to reach by 2028,” Feull explained.
