Stellantis Trademarks Halcyon Name for a Future Concept

Stellantis has trademarked a new name for a future concept vehicle in the United States.

  • This concept is likely to preview an upcoming electric model.

  • This name could imply a retro-inspired vehicle.

  • Each Stellantis brand sold in North America will introduce EVs in the next three years.

Documents from the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) show that Stellantis has earmarked the Halcyon name for a future concept vehicle.

Usually, these applications are quite vague and cover the use of a name on almost any type of motor vehicle, but in this case, Stellantis has specifically indicated it plans to use the name on a concept car, which could be unveiled in the coming months.

While we don’t know any details about this upcoming concept yet, its name could give a few clues about what to expect.

Indeed, Halcyon is defined by the Oxford English Dictionnary as “a period of time characterized by peace, happiness, prosperity or success, often with overtones of nostalgia”.

This means that the upcoming concept might be retro-inspired, something that can also be said about the already unveiled Dodge Charger Daytona SRT electric concept.

In addition, it is likely this concept will also be powered by electricity since the automaker wants EVs to make up 50% of its sales in North America and 100% in Europe by 2030.

Since all six Stellantis brands that are offered in North America are looking to launch new electric models in the next two or three years, it is difficult to predict which one is going to get this new concept.

In any case, this model will most likely be built on one of the four new electrified platforms announced by the automaker back in 2021: STLA Small, STLA Medium, STLA Large, and STLA Frame.

Of these modular platforms, STLA Medium will be the first to enter production in the next few weeks under the new version of the Europe-only Peugeot 3008 crossover.

STLA Large will be used by the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT, and STLA Frame will be used by large trucks and SUVs, such as the RAM 1500 REV.

In addition to these two future EVs, other models that we know of which are still in the pipelines at Stellantis include the Jeep Recon and Wagonner S SUVs, in addition to a Chrysler-branded SUV that was previewed by the Airflow concept but will receive substantial updates before its release in 2025.
