We spotted the new Dodge EV hanging out in the Chrysler area at the 2008 LA Auto Show and thought we’d snap some pics of the car’s first auto show appearance that went overlooked. According to a previous report by Automotive News, Chrysler has plans to team up with Lotus to produce the Dodge EV.

The production model is expected to be fully-electric and will provide a range of 150 to 200 miles on a single charge. No word on where Chrysler and Lotus stand now with the current financial condition of Chrysler LLC, but we’d love to see this car on the roads very soon.
