Chrysler announced it will produce three different electric-drive vehicles as part of its 2010 line of cars. The automaker has developed an electric-drive version for each of its brands — Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge. Chrysler will begin to introduce its electric vehicles next year for government, business and utilities. The cars were developed by Chrysler's ENVI organization, which is dedicated to developing electric-drive vehicles. The electric-drive technology is applied to the front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and body-on-frame four-wheel drive platforms.
With the electric-drive vehicles, or EVs, Chrysler aims to meet consumer demand for alternative-energy cars, as well as improve its corporate image. “We have a social responsibility to our consumers to deliver environmentally friendly, fuel-efficient, advanced electric vehicles, and our intention is to meet that responsibility quickly and more broadly than any other automobile manufacturer,” says Bob Nardelli, chairman and CEO of Chrysler. “The introduction of the Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge electric vehicles provides a glimpse of the very near future and demonstrates that we are serious and well along in bringing electric vehicles to market.”
