Default Chrysler unveils electric car that gets 150 miles a charge

Chrysler LLC said Tuesday it will sell a plug-in electric car in the United States by 2010, joining the race to develop a battery-powered vehicle to boost its environmental credentials.

"[We're] looking at a full line of electric vehicles," Chrysler chief executive Bob Nardelli said on the CNBC TV network. "We've made huge commitments, both from a resource standpoint and from a financial standpoint."

Chrysler, the third-largest automaker in the United States and number two in Canada, pledged to have at least one electric vehicle in showrooms by the end of 2010. It said some of its electric models might be tested in fleets as early as next year.

150 miles per charge? I like it. The Volt will fail with only 40 miles per charge and a nearly $40K price tag. The market needs a small family sedan and a small two door sporty car to start. Both need to be under $25K.

Yah right. Let's see how long today's Bush Xmax gift will last. The bailout $14 bil will keep Chrysler alive for another two weeks? or four?

Well, I just recently found out that this plan of Chrysler includes reengineering Town and Country minivan that Chrysler claims "will be able to travel 40 miles on electric power alone." It will also come with a small gasoline engine that is capable of recharging the battery so that it would be able to go on for another 400 miles! Great!

What are we talking about? Chrysler is about to stop existing rather then to start producing new (experimental) models. They already went bankrupt as far as I understand. Electric car from Chrysler is a fiction
