BEV is not going to take off in the US like Europe. MHEV, HEV and PHEV are what is going to catch on in the US. You basically start with the same turbo 4 and add electric motors for more performance.Electrification will be driven by customer demands and its soaring in europe, so it will do in us due to the fact that the e- car is better in so many ways.

Please don't be hard on younger folk. First compact was a Le-baron coupe, loved it and probably would have had it longer if my son now "Diesel Mechanic" new how to look at a temperature gauge!They know they can't pronounce it. They know they don't like weird styling. All of them over 50 or who have traveled to Europe and Asia know what it is. That's about 1/3 of the country. Most of them probably think the brand went extinct instead of being bought out by Peugeot.

Let me tell you who had the first now industry standard transverse 4 cylinder water cooled turbo 2.0 L or larger engine car. It was Chrysler, not some European or Japanese brand. You think Chrysler doesn't belong in the market segment it invented.
