Chrysler to show off electric-vehicle efforts in Detroit

At last year’s Detroit Auto Show, Chrysler threw a major press event outside Cobo center for the launch if it’s 2009 Dodge Ram pickup. Now, a year later, Chrysler is going to try something different and will show off the latest versions of the three electric vehicles it unveiled in September.

In September, Chrysler showed a gasoline-electric version of the Town & Country minivan known as the Chrysler EV; a gasoline-electric version of the Wrangler known as the Jeep EV; and an all-electric sports car based on Lotus carrying a Dodge EV badge.

According to Automotive News, the show version of the Dodge EV in Detroit will have more “Dodge-like” styling and could possibly be a four-passenger coupe.

All electric-vehicle products of the company come from its ENVI department. Chrysler said the ENVI will offer its first production vehicle by 2010, but it isn’t saying exactly which one will be offered to the market.
