officials released the Dodge Ev, an performance sports vehicle looks very similar to Roadster and also other 2 on built completely or partially an electric powertrain.

All three are part of a special company’s which includes more such as an extended entirely minivan called Chrysler EV and a four-doors Jeep. The Dodge Ev is the car of the series that was presented, entirely on plug-in and inspired by the Europa .

Chrysler LLC announced that the Company and its ENVI have new production-intent, advanced technology packaged in three vehicles – one for each of its brands, Jeep® and Dodge.

Chrysler select one electric-drive model to be in 2010 for consumers in North markets, and European markets 2010. Additionally, approximately 100 electric vehicles will be on the in government, business, utility and development fleets in 2009.

The said that it is well the development of advanced, production-intent vehicles, and that it will electric-drive technology to its front-wheel-drive, and body-on-frame four-wheel-drive platforms in the several years.

At its World Headquarters here Chrysler revealed its electric-drive – Dodge EV, Jeep EV and Chrysler EV – and the driving performance and capability of

“We have a social responsibility to our to deliver environmentally friendly, advanced electric vehicles, and our is to meet that responsibility and more broadly than any automobile manufacturer,” said Bob Chairman and CEO – Chrysler LLC. introduction of the Chrysler, Jeep and electric vehicles provides a of the very near future, and that we are serious and well in the development of bringing electric to market.”

ENVI Organization

The of Chrysler’s Electric Vehicles and Electric Vehicles is led by ENVI – the first four letters of – the Company’s in-house organization was formed to focus on electric-drive vehicles and related advanced The development of electric-drive systems for Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge is maturing quickly.

“ENVI was just over one year ago the strategic intent to develop vehicles quickly for Chrysler, and it is expectations,” said Tom LaSorda, Chairman and President – Chrysler “With ENVI, Chrysler is technology to bring Electric and extremely fuel-efficient Range-extended Vehicles to market.”

Electric Vehicle Technology

Electric Vehicles utilize three primary components. include an electric motor to the wheels, an advanced lithium-ion system to power the electric-drive and a controller that manages flow. The electric-drive system is developed for front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive, and four-wheel-drive vehicle applications.

technology provides customers a vehicle that has zero emissions and a 150- to 200-mile range – far exceeding most daily commutes, as nearly 80 of Americans drive less 40 miles per day, or 14,000 per year,” said Frank Executive Vice President – Devel opment, Chrysler “Electric Vehicles provide the to fulfill social responsibility, dependency on foreign oil, and monthly gasoline bills, delivering performance and utility our customers desire.”

Range-extended Vehicle Technology

The Range-extended Vehicle combines the electric-drive of the Electric Vehicle with a gasoline engine and integrated generator to produce additional to power the electric-drive system needed. This provides the attributes of an Electric Vehicle the driving range equivalent to gasoline-powered vehicles – with no in performance.

Range-extended Electric offer environmental responsibility giving up driving range, or utility.

Dodge EV

The Dodge EV development Electric is a two-passenger, rear-wheel-drive sports car marries high performance zero tailpipe emissions.

Dodge EV sets a new standard for can be expected in electric-drive vehicles,” Lou Rhodes, Vice President – Vehicle Engineering, and President – “The electric-vehicle technology a fun-to-drive performance sports car and redefine the vision of an environmentally vehicle for the Dodge brand.”

The system consists of three components: a 200 kW (268 horsepower) motor, an advanced lithium-ion and an integrated power controller.

The 200 kW motor generates 650 N•m (480 of torque. The instant high of the electric-drive motor delivers performance, accelerating the Dodge EV to 60 mph in than five seconds, quarter-mile times of 13 seconds. The EV has a top speed of more than 120

Working with the latest lithium-ion battery technology, the EV has a continuous driving range of 150 to 200 – more than triple the daily commute of most Recharging the vehicle is a simple process: plugging into a 110-volt household outlet for hours. The recharge time can be cut in to four hours by using a 220-volt household appliance outlet.

The Dodge EV offers enthusiasts a performance sports car can be driven to work every day – consuming gasoline or producing emissions.

Jeep EV

The Jeep EV development is a Range-extended Electric Vehicle provides a glimpse into the of a “Go Anywhere, Do Anything” vehicle renowned Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep EV combines Wrangler’s off-road capability with the “Tread Lightly” mindset by nature ambassadors with the to roam the planet and take of it at the same time.

The Jeep EV Electric Vehicle uses an motor, an advanced lithium-ion system, and a small gasoline with an integrated electric to produce additional energy to the electric-drive system when The 200 kW (268 horsepower) electric generates 400 N•m (295 lb.-ft.) of With approximately eight of gasoline, the Jeep EV has a range of 400 including 40 miles of zero zero-emissions, all-electric operation.

“We are exploring four-wheel-drive, in-wheel motors to demonstrate the full of ENVI’s advanced electric-drive said Rhodes.

The instant torque of the electric-drive motor and the to precisely control each independently results in off-road ideally suited for the Jeep without compromising on-road capability.

Chrysler EV

The Chrysler EV vehicle is a Range-extended Electric that demonstrates another application of ENVI electric-drive in the segment-leading Chrysler Town minivan.

“With the Chrysler EV, we are able to seven-passenger capability and the luxury of the Town Country minivan electric-drive technology, demonstrating practicality with zero said Rhodes. “ENVI’s development vehicles showcase our application of electric-drive systems a wide range of vehicles in future product portfolio.”

The EV combines the electric-drive components of an Vehicle with an integrated engine and generator to produce electricity to power the electric-drive when needed. This all of the positive attributes of an Electric and extends the driving range to be to today’s gasoline-powered vehicles – compromises.

The Chrysler EV uses a 190 kW horsepower) motor, producing 350 N•m lb.-ft.) of torque, providing 0 to 60 mph in approximately nine seconds. The EV Range-extended Electric Vehicle can 40 miles on all-electric power, and a range of 400 miles on approximately gallons of gasoline. This the Chrysler EV the perfect fuel-efficient vehicle.

The knowledge and experience from the Chrysler EV will be to other front-wheel-drive applications in portfolio.

Chrysler LLC Electric-vehicle Web Site

Chrysler LLC has launched a Web site – – to allow consumers to view the updates on Electric Vehicles and Electric Vehicles from the Content will include photography and news, and visitors can up for updates. In addition, the site a blog where consumers can directly with the Company.

of Energy Cooperative Agreement

and General Electric are jointly a project with the United Department of Energy to explore energy-storage technology.

“Chrysler’s with General Electric the electric-drive technology demonstrated in the Electric Vehicles, with research and development of advanced storage systems,” said “Our collective goal with the DOE is to develop a new, energy-storage system to make vehicle battery packs and significantly less expensive current designs.”
