In order to add one of the automotive industry s most technologies into their build process, cross-functional teams conducted highly cost-effective computer simulation of new processes. Similar efforts conducted at tooling suppliers.

The of this new manufacturing process was intelligently, with both and cost in mind, said Joe Plant Manager of Newark I d like to congratulate and thank the for their dedication while these important new products to to help satisfy the changing of our Dodge and Chrysler customers.

The members of UAW Local 1183 to prove that they the expertise, the experience, the training and the to successfully accomplish the most and complex work, said Dixon, President of UAW Local This demonstration of excellence is the men and women of UAW 1183 and UAW 1212 be proud of.

The production of early vehicles was done on the plant s line which helped to out anomalies early in the pre-production helping to ensure a higher launch.

Production of vehicles with the powertrain differs in several from production of those conventional powertrains. New processes implemented to accommodate HEV production, a unique powertrain assembly and ergonomic-assist systems to aid in new functions, as HEV battery installation.

There are unique components associated HEV production that are installed at the including:

300-volt battery


Torque power module (TPIM)

Electric air

Auxiliary power module

cables (AC and DC)

Hydro-electric power pump

Hybrid gate way

Cooling module

Dodge was the leader in its segment for initial according to J.D. Power and 2008 Initial Quality With the advent of HEV production, a new of error-proofing processes was put in place to continued quality excellence.

We are proud of the highly skilled and employees at Chrysler s Newark Delaware Governor Ruth Ann said. The employees at Newark continue to work hard to the success of this new product and we are looking forward to these new vehicles being available to the

The Advanced Two-mode Hybrid

Chrysler LLC s advanced, state-of-the-art full hybrid system in partnership with General Daimler and The BMW Group integrates automatic-transmission technology with a hybrid-electric drive system to the world s first two-mode hybrid.

As a result of low- and electrically variable transmission modes, the system is defined as a hybrid. In addition, the sophisticated system incorporates four ratios for high efficiency and capabilities. During the two EVT modes, the can use the electric motors to improve economy, acceleration, and for regenerative to utilize energy that normally be lost during or deceleration. The energy is stored in the for later use.

The system s two modes are optimized for and highway driving.

In the first at low speed and with light the vehicle can operate in three

The two-mode provides all of the fuel-saving benefits of a system, including electric-only In this mode, the engine is off, with the vehicle under electric-only power at low The result is a significant reduction in consumption in heavy stop-and-go

The second mode is used at highway speeds. In addition to assist, the second mode full power from when conditions demand it, as when passing, pulling a or climbing a steep grade.

for the full-size 4 4 sport-utility hybrid vehicles is nearly $8,000 the competition. The manufacturer s suggested price (MSRP) for the new 2009 Durango HEMI(R) Hybrid is including $800 for destination. The for the new 2009 Chrysler Aspen Hybrid is $45,570, including for destination.

Additionally, customers are to receive an estimated tax credit of

Newark Assembly Plant

The 3.4 square feet Newark plant has 1,000 employees and is by UAW Local 1183 and UAW Local The facility was built in 1951 as a plant and converted to an automobile in 1957. The 1998 Dodge was introduced in September 1997. The 2004 Dodge Durango was launched October 2003.

The Chrysler Aspen was launched 2006. Hybrid production in August 2008.
