Electrified pickups and SUVs may be all the rage, but there’s apparently still plenty of room in the EV market for more battery-powered cars and crossovers. At CES 2022 on Wednesday, Chrysler unveiled its first all-electric vehicle concept, the Airflow.
“The Chrysler Airflow Concept represents the future direction of the Chrysler brand, offering a glimpse into the dynamic design, advanced technologies and seamless connectivity that will characterize the all-electric portfolio we aim to achieve by 2028,” said Chris Feuell, CEO of Chrysler. in a press statement.
As a concept vehicle, the Airflow has almost all the bells and whistles Chrysler could offer, such as an in-vehicle camera for in-vehicle video conferencing, as well as the company’s new E/E (electric/electronic) and software platforms, STLA Brain, STLA SmartCockpit and STLA AutoDrive. STLA Brain acts as the vehicle’s central controller, allowing it to receive OTA updates. SmartCockpit, on the other hand, manages Airflow’s infotainment system, which offers navigation and voice control, as well as an onboard app store, for both the driver and passengers. Autodrive will reportedly offer Level 3 self-driving features with the potential for further feature enhancements through those OTA updates.
The Airflow concept is equipped with twin 150 kW motors, delivering crossover AWD capabilities and a Chrysler-estimated range of 350-400 miles. Exterior design details include full-width LED taillights and 22-inch rims, while the leather-wrapped interior offers individual climate control options, separate dashboard-mounted touchscreens for the driver and front passenger (as well as back-mounted screens for both rear passengers ), and mood lighting that shifts based on passenger preferences and what’s playing on the central displays.
Being just a concept vehicle, the Airflow arriving in 2025 could – and likely will – look and perform a little differently than what was announced today. Looking at you, the level 3 promises autonomy.
