The future of the Chrysler brand was murky when Fiat Chrysler Automobiles merged with PSA Group in 2021 to form Stellantis.
One year later, the vision is much sharper: The product-starved brand plans to debut its first battery-electric model by 2025 and will eliminate internal-combustion engines by 2028.
Stellantis is providing a glimpse of the road ahead with an electric crossover concept called the Chrysler Airflow being revealed Wednesday at CES in Las Vegas.
The company projects that the tech-laden crossover, which allows passengers to participate in video meetings and serves as an extension of their digital lifestyles, will have 350 miles (563 km) to 400 miles (645) of electric range.
The Airflow has Level 3 autonomous capabilities through the STLA AutoDrive system, developed in partnership with BMW, that can be upgraded wirelessly.
The Airflow concept sets the stage for what consumers can expect from the Chrysler brand as it revamps in the Stellantis era.
"It's definitely going in the direction that we want our future designs to represent," Christine Feuell, the brand's CEO, told Automotive News. "Something very sleek and dynamic, which is important. Battery-electric vehicles, in order to achieve your range targets, need to be aerodynamic. But we want to be able to do that in a very beautiful way, in an interesting way."
