Chrysler concepts for Detroit – rpmGo.com

Chrysler announced three new concepts that will debut at next year’s Detroit Motor Show. These are the ‘clean-running’ and ‘excitingly-styled’ Dodge Zeo, Jeep Renegade and Chrysler ecoVoyager.

The Dodge Zeo is a sport wagon hybrid concept and even though it looks like a 2+2 coupe it’s actually a four-door four-seater concept. Powered by a 250 kW electric motor which runs on a plug-in lithium-ion battery, the concept has a range of 250 miles and it speeds from 0 to 62 mph (100km/h) in less than 6 seconds.

The second concept, the Jeep Renegade is a four wheel drive sport hybrid concept (with the most striking design from all three) and which is also powered by lithium-ion battery electric motor and a Bluetec diesel engine, and achieves an impressive 110 mpg fuel consumption. The concept’s AWD system features two 85 kW electric motors on each axle.

And the third concept is the Chrysler ecoVoyager, features a hydrogen fuel cell that generates electricity for the battery pack and 200 kW electric motor, and which Chrysler says , has a range of 300 miles.

Do you like these designs? I, personally, am not so thrilled, still, if the technologies will see production, things look really good. You can leave a comment here.
