“The Chrysler Airflow Concept represents the start of the brand’s journey toward a fully electrified future,” Ralph Gilles, chief design officer for Chrysler’s parent company Stellantis, said in a press release. “It is the result of a thoughtful synthesis of the full arsenal of Stellantis’ connected vehicle technology – inside and out.”

The vehicle’s artificial intelligence system is powered by a battery with the ability to travel 350 to 400 miles per battery charge.

“Chrysler is an iconic American automotive brand, with a heritage in creating new advanced technologies and product segments,” Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand CEO for Stellantis, said. “Our brand will serve at the forefront as Stellantis transforms to deliver clean mobility and connected customer experiences.”
