New Reveal At Detroit: 2009 Chrysler 200C Concept

Along with Dodge's Circuit EV, comes this Chrysler electric concept. It's called the 200C Concept, and it's one of E-REV (Range-extender electric-vehicles) series that may slip into production factories soon.
The troubled-American automaker has pulled another one out of its ENVI bag of tricks. Chrysler says that the new 200C EV concept is influenced by the proportions of the Chrysler 300C to create a modern E-REV that appeals to both luxury and sports car enthusiasts. Infact, it does. All the sleek lines and that beautifully-shaped grille give it a distinctive look.
We can't talk much about the interior, because Chrysler gave this show car a rather too concept like interior, so we know when it hits production, it'll be completely different. As for the concept's interior goes, it's full of leather and chrome bits.
The method that the 200C uses is a Range-extender Electric Vehicle Technology. So This Chrysler 200C EV uses a small gasoline engine and integrated electric generator that produces electricity to extend the driving range to 400 miles. It can also do 40-miles with zero fuel consumption and zero tailpipe emissions.
It's noticeable that the Chrysler LLC Group is interested in making electric cars nowadays. However, will this interest result that they make good cars, that people would want to buy? Well they're in trouble right now, so they should work hard.
