Chrysler Is Working on an Electric Sedan to Replace the 300

Chrysler could have three electric models by 2028, including a sedan that will replace the 300.

  • This upcoming model is said to look similar to the Charger Daytona SRT concept, on which it will be based.

  • The automaker had already teased this model in a presentation in 2021.

  • The 2023 300C, the last version of the current model, has already begun deliveries.

At its recent dealer conference in Las Vegas, Stellantis privately unveiled three new models, including an upcoming Chrysler-branded electric sedan that could replace the aging 300.

According to the dealers who have seen this preview, the sedan will feature a fastback style similar to that seen on the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT.

This makes sense since the electric Dodge will replace the current Charger, which is built on the same platform as the Chrysler 300.

This means that buyers will continue to have both performance and luxury-focused options when buying a sedan from their local Stellantis dealership.

While no pictures have been released as part of the dealer conference, it isn’t the first time this future model has been teased.

Indeed, back in 2021, the automaker published images showing the outline of a modern fastback sedan wearing Chrysler-badged wheels during its EV Day presentation.

Few additional details are known at the moment, but its size could make it compete with some of the largest electric sedans on the market, such as the BMW i7, Tesla Model S, and Mercedes-Benz EQS.

This new model will help revitalize the Chrysler brand, which hasn’t released a completely new product since the Pacifica minivan replaced the Town & Country back in 2017.

In addition to the future 300 EV, Chrysler is also working on the Airflow concept, a compact SUV that could go head-to-head with the Tesla Model Y and the Ford Mustang Mach E when it arrives on the market in late 2024.

The complete details for this model are not known yet either, but the company says it will manufacture it at its Windsor, Ontario plant, alongside the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT, and most likely, the 300 EV.

An electric minivan is also set to replace the Pacifica in the lineup by 2028, at which point the brand will only sell electric vehicles.

While we don’t know exactly when to expect the upcoming Chrysler sedan, it might not be long before it makes its public debut since the high-performance 2023 300C, a special edition commemorating the end of the Hemi-powered 300, has now begun reaching its buyers.
