LaSorda: Chrysler looking to add small cars ‘as fast as we can’

You would think with all the hype surrounded around the Dodge Challenger, Chrysler has no intentions of going green. However, if you remember Jim Press recently said that Chrysler will offer a hybrid variant of every model in its lineup. We have no idea if that’s every going to become reality, but the auto maker is now quickly looking to add small and mid-sized cars to its lineup.

“The bottom line is to shift the portfolio into mid- and small cars as fast as we can and balance the portfolio and the technology,” said Tom LaSorda.

Work is progressing on Chrysler’s Project D program that was launched in 2007 to develop a new global mid-sized car to replace the Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger

Chrysler has also signed a contract with Nissan to build new small cars for North America starting in 2009 for the 2010 model year.
