Chrysler CEO says at least three new electric vehicles are on track for 2028

The presentation of the Airflow concept at CES last week marks Chrysler‘s clear commitment to an electric future. The Stellantis brand is committed to building its first electric vehicle in 2025 and becoming a fully electric car manufacturer in 2028.

Following the debut of the Airflow Concept, Chrysler CEO Christine Feuell has revealed more details about the brand’s future line of electric vehicles in MotorTrend. To begin with, Feuell says that it is a “certainty” That the brand will have more offers in 2028 than its current three plates: the 300, the Pacifica and the Voyager for fleet only.

Airflow’s sleek electric crossover concept offers a glimpse of what’s ahead, though Chrysler has refrained from openly saying it is previewing the production electric crossover scheduled for launch in 2025.

In fact, Feuell said the concept of airflow itself would not go into production. Nor was she prepared to commit to using the Airflow name. However, the CEO admitted that Chrysler’s first production electric vehicle will borrow much of the style and technology from the Airflow Concept.

Starting in 2025, the EV will be built on the STLA Large platform, as will all of Chrysler’s upcoming products. If the Airflow Concept is to be considered, the electric crossover will have a 118 kWh battery that will allow a range of 350 to 400 miles.

After the Airflow-like production car arrives, Chrysler will continue with “one or two” More electric SUVs. While Feuell wouldn’t go into details, one of the new vehicles is likely to be a full-size three-row SUV, as the Airflow-like vehicle will be a mid-size electric crossover with two rows of seats. A medium-sized three-row model should also not be ruled out.

What about a fully electric Chrysler minivan? Feuell says that despite being overshadowed by the boom in SUV sales, minivans remain important to the brand and will withstand the transition to electric vehicles.

Don’t expect just an electrified Pacifica, though. Feuell wants to see a “new perspective” about what a minivan can be, a vehicle that serves and pleases any type of family, not just the obsolete one “great football player” stereotype.

He didn’t provide a time period for the next-generation van, which he likes to call “multipurpose vehicle,” But with the Pacifica still in its fifth year, a successor is likely to arrive after Chrysler ‘s planned electric SUVs.

The future may not be as favorable for the 300 sedan; when asked directly, Feuell did not confirm or deny a next-generation 300. The current model will be released in 2024 along with its platform brothers, the Dodge Charger and the Challenger. But while Dodge models will be replaced by a new muscle car EV in 2024 (also built on the STLA Large platform), the 300 may not have a successor.
