Chrysler to introduce new 100, a plug-in hybrid, and no more Dodge Caravan

Along with Fiat’s announcements involving all of its future products, word is in about Chrysler themselves, who will be introducing an all-new entry-level 100, most likely built to compete against the Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, and Chevrolet Cruze.

According to Chrysler’s CEO, Al Gardner, a new sales target of 800,000 was set for reach by 2018, a major increase of 350,000 units total when compared to results fro 2013. That said, new models are required to stay relevant. In addition to an entry-level 100, the 300 should be updated in time for the Los Angeles Auto Show this year.

The 100 is expected to be revealed in 2016 next to an all-new Town & Country minivan, which will be a brand of its own within Chrysler, similarly to the RAM and SRT brands. The T&C this time will also include a plug-in hybrid model, serving up the equivalent to 75 mph. That will most likely give the car the title as the most fuel-efficient minivan, encouraging competition from everyone else.

A compact crossover is also said to be in the works, built to compete against the Ford Escape, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, the Honda CR-V, and the Toyota RAV4. Though details were kept to a hush.
