Chrysler announces one EV for 2010

by David Zatz on

Chrysler has sent out a brochure which proclaims, “Watch for one of these exciting new models to appear in 2010.” Pictured are the Dodge EV, Chrysler EV, and Jeep EV – modified versions of a Lotus (Dodge Circuit), Town & Country minivan, and Jeep Wrangler.

The Dodge and Chrysler are most likely to reach production quickly. The minivan is the target of a Post Office grant, and is probably the easiest to modify given the space available; while the Dodge Circuit could be built in small numbers by Lotus or at Conner Avenue, and is less complex given the lack of a range extender.

Chrysler built Dodge and Plymouth electric minivans in the 1990s, some of which remain on the road. (Thanks, MooseEater.)
