Future models - Chrysler - ecoVOYAGER

Detroit show: Chrysler ecoVoyager

ENVI-ous: Hydrogen fuel cell extends the ecoVoyager battery's range.

Chrysler electric vehicles step into the limelight

21 Jan 2008

NO LONGER required to share the limelight with Daimler at Detroit, the reborn Chrysler presented a trio of electric vehicles that also pointed to future styling across its brands – Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep – at this week’s show.

The concept cars herald the emergence of an electric powertrain system dubbed Environmentally Responsible Electric Vehicle, or ENVI.

The Chrysler version is called the ecoVoyager and uses a next-generation lithium-ion battery module with a driving range of 64km.

Chrysler said a hydrogen fuel cell range extender means the concept car can run 483km until it needs another charge.

The motor produces 200kW, which is driven through the front wheels – it is enough power to push the green machine from 0-100km/h in around eight seconds.
