This auto show season Chrysler will be showing a trio of electrically-driven concept cars developed by ENVI, a division of Chrysler charged with heading up the brand's electric and advanced propulsion projects. The flashiest of the three is no doubt the Dodge EV, a brilliant yellow two-seat sports car based on the Lotus Europa, featuring all-electric propulsion by way of a 268-horsepower electric motor and an advanced Lithium-ion battery pack. The Dodge EV is capable of accelerating to sixty miles per hour in around five seconds while offering greater than a 150-mile range. In a nod to practicality, Chrysler also created electric versions of the Chrysler Town and Country and Jeep Wrangler. Both the Jeep and Chrysler EV concepts feature a battery pack and electric motor that provide approximately 40 miles of pure electric range, after which a small gasoline engine takes over to generate further electric power. Chrysler intends to roll out one of the concepts as a production car by 2010. Watch the video below to learn more about Chrysler's EV concepts.
