Chrysler Unveiled as brand's all-electric future: 2022 Airflow Concept | CES 2022
The Chrysler Airflow is the first whole-size American production car to employ streamlining as a base to build a sleeker and compact automobile that is less susceptible to air resistance. The history of Chrysler Airflow is fascinating as the vehicle only existed between 1934 to 1937. Although it was tagged an engineering success, it is one of the biggest automotive, commercial failures.
However, the 2022 Chrysler Airflow is set to bring back this incredible engineering success in a better way, fitting for the new way of all-electric vehicles. Keep reading to find out more about the vehicle.
About the Model
The Chrysler Airflow is an entirely battery-electric portfolio that promises level 3 autonomous driving functionality. The vehicle has a crossover profile coupled with a decent ride height that puts it right in line with Nissan Ariya, Volkswagen ID.4, and the Ford Mustang Mach-E.
Design and Outlook
The 2022 Chrysler Airflow Concept design has a decisively elegant aerodynamic surface and a modern, fresh, and sophisticated interior that takes you to another level of digital joy. In addition, the Airflow is rumoured to give us a peek into Chrysler's BEV-era design language.
Features and Capacity
Although there is not much information on the features and capabilities, the 2022 Chrysler Airflow Concept unveiling gave us some sneak peek. For one, they claim that the vehicle will integrate cutting-edge drive system tech with intuitive artificial intelligence. In addition, it has connected vehicle technology, delivering 350 to 400-mile capacity and fast-charging functionality.
In addition, there are also suggestions that the has 118 kWh of capacity. The four-seat interior seems to be airy and spacious with several large screens. One of them is for the central infotainment display, one is for the instrument cluster, two for rear passengers, and one for the front passenger.
The car is speculated to have an STLA AutoDrive that will deliver a Level 3 autonomous driving range upgradeable through OTA updates. In addition, it is said to come with seamless connectivity to help optimize customer experiences. The user experience is enabled by STLA Brian and SmartCockpit, keeping the car intuitive, agile and fresh. It is speculated to be powered by front and rear electric motors with 201 hp each.
