Reuters has reported that automotive manufacturer Chrysler has announced its plans to launch a new electric vehicle (EV) by 2025. The revelation was made by Chrysler’s CEO, Christine Feuell, at the Reuters Events Automotive USA 2023 conference held in Detroit. The forthcoming vehicle is described as a two-row electric crossover that takes its aesthetic cues from the Airflow concept, initially showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2022.

The design is not the only innovative aspect of this new model; it will also be built on the STLA Large platform, which is shared across various Stellantis vehicles, indicating a synergistic approach to vehicle architecture within the group. As Chrysler progresses towards electrification, the CEO also hinted at the introduction of a new sedan. This move is in response to the discontinuation of the longstanding Chrysler 300 model. Although details are sparse, consumers can expect a concept reveal early in the coming year.

In addition to these model updates, Chrysler is committed to continuing its hybrid offerings, with the Pacifica minivan set to remain available in a hybrid form until at least 2030. This commitment underscores the brand’s transitional strategy, balancing between immediate electric advancements and the current hybrid market demand.
