Chrysler presents the ‘Airflow’ concept at the CES

Chrysler has unveiled its Airflow Concept at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (CES). Chrysler aims to launch its first BEV model by 2025 and offer an 100% electric vehicle range by 2028.

“The Chrysler Airflow Concept represents the beginning of the brand’s journey to a fully electrified future,”

Ralph Gilles, chief design officer at Stellantis

Two electric drive motors (EDM) at the front and rear of the vehicle each have 150 kW. The Airflow concept also offers the possibility of installing larger EDMs, the company writes. Conceivable here are the EDM2 and EDM3 from the Stellantis modular system.

The battery should allow a range of 350 to 400 miles on a full charge. Chrysler does not provide information on the capacity of the battery. For classification: STLA Medium is designed for 87 to 104 kWh, STLA Large for 101 to 118 kWh.

Instead of the powertrain from the company’s modular system, Chrysler places a lot of emphasis on other factors – such as the software and autonomous driving assistants. According to a company statement, the concept car integrates a STLA Brain platform – a software architecture that is OTA-capable (over-the-air) and via which functions and services can be updated – as well as the STLA SmartCockpit with AI-based applications such as navigation, voice assistance and payment services. STLA AutoDrive is also said to enable Level 3 autonomous driving functions.

Chrysler calls the design of the Airflow Concept “a vision for the next generation of premium transportation and user experience”. It includes, among other things, a low ride height and a streamlined roofline designed to increase the vehicle’s range. At the front, the Chrysler wing logo is integrated into a grille light with LED illumination.
