    Well as a 300 replacement, I do prefer this to the 300. I never thought it looked good, and it just got worse with its reputation. However, this will probably be twice as expensive as the 300 was so it’s a moot point.

    Looks like they went on behance or IG and just built a concept based on a random students sketch

    800V architecture like the new banshee, so probably 1000hp+

    I wish they'd stop making concept cars. Literally what's the point. 90% of the time it never enters production and if it does then it doesn't look anything like the concept. Just make a car. I don't see any other companies making conceptual products. I've never seen a concept for a washing machine. They just make the thing and you buy it at the store.

      Chrysler has a better track record than most for having concept cars be similar to production vehicles, like with the 300c, new charger, etc. Will see interview in next week or so from Kuniskis or whoever and get a sense if they will bring something similar to production

      it gets people talking, sparks a buzz. it breaks down silos between our sales team, marketing, R&D, and potential customers, which increases interdepartmental synergy and creates go-to-market solutions. think of them as whiteboarding sessions for our core people to think outside the box and really flesh out some really cool stuff.

    I wonder how they'll ruin the production model

      Well, given this thing looks like a super-aero sedan, good for 7 miles to a kWh or 300+ miles even with a lightweight 50kWh battery. Allowing for what might be a competitive price tag vs the Tesla Model 3.

      They'll almost certainly use the name for a 2 mile a kWh crossover SUV that needs a 150kWh battery pack to go 300 miles, but they'll cheap out with only 68kWh.
      Which Dealers will still then mark up to $20k more than the 75kWh Model Y because people still don't understand EVs.

        They'll also raise the ride height like 8 inches and people will think it looks better that way

        Hi I'm someone with a passing autistic interest in fluid dynamics and especially as they apply to road vehicles.

        This prototype or concept does not have good aero. The open (and cutter spoke style, yikes!) wheels, the front wheel duct deposting to that long body midline directly into the rear wheels/arches, the lack of seperator lines at the rear, the strange rear body shape (there's mild boattailing but that overhang ruins all of it)
        Basically I don't expect this thing to have better than a .32cd assuming they didn't frick the rest of the car.
        .32Cd is abysmal,
        a 2nd gen chrysler 200 from 2015 (so probably designed from 2011-2012) has .285 (claimed)
        That car has clear seperator edges to the rear, ducktail'ed trunk-spoiler with good boat tailing, a decently controlled underbody covering, and is SMOOTH ALL OVER

        yeah I'm really not seeing any less than 240-250wh/mile from this thing, assuming a weight below 4500lbs. but consider it lacks a b pillar, so is using the battery holding floor/frame as the entire structural part, and it's probably clocked in at 4800+lbs.

        Autist, OUT

    Is that it? What's the gimmick here? This thing looks even worse than the eCharger for no obvious purpose.

      It is pretty clearly a super-aero design made to have very little drag. Less drag means more range from a smaller battery through needing to expend less power for any speed.

      The front end with its faux air intake looks to send air straight up over the roof on an uninterrupted path, the front haunches are designed to reduce drag, the contours at the back are a fancy kammbak, no wing mirrors for even less front surface area.
      My earlier guess that it looks like it would do about 7 miles per kWh is based on the similarly designed Mercedes EQXX prototype that they drove 600+ miles with just 100kWh.
