Chrysler Will Launch the Airflow Concept at the CES on January 5th, 2022

Chrysler will publicly launch its Airflow concept at the CES in January 2022

  • This will be Chrysler’s first electric vehicle

  • It will be an SUV designed to compete with the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Tesla model Y

  • It could have a range of up to 440 miles (708 kilometers)

Chrysler announced that its Airflow concept will make its public debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 5th 2022.

This concept is an almost production-ready version of the brand’s first electric vehicle and its first all-new product since the Pacifica minivan was introduced in 2016.

Despite the styling being almost finalised, this concept will not be on sale until at least 2024, when the company’s STLA Medium electric vehicle platform will be introduced.

Being built on this platform means that the Airflow will benefit from the latest innovations in electric vehicle platforms, notably software related advancements and the capacity for over-the-air updates, advanced driver assistance features and multiple connected services that will provide additional features to the driver.

Few details are known about the powertrain, but the Airflow will use batteries with a capacity ranging from 87 to 104 kWh which should allow it to have a range of up to 440 miles (708 kilometers). The motors available for use in this vehicle have outputs situated between 167 and 241 horsepower and a dual motor AWD setup is likely to be offered, which could potentially double the total output.

The concept was first shown during the Stellantis Software Day earlier in the year, and as mentioned, the styiling of the Airflow already seemed remarkably close to a production model with many of the details generally not included on early prototypes, such as marker lights and a working infotainment system.

The arrival of this model is crucial for the Chrysler brand which was given a 10 year ultimatum to prove its worth when FCA merged with PSA to form Stellantis, the entity in charge of the Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Fiat, Maserati and Alfa Romeo brands in North America.
