Chrysler brand to go all electric by 2028 - executive

Chrysler will drive towards an all-electric lineup by 2028.

That's according to the brand's chief executive Wednesday (January 5).

The Stellantis-owned company is due to show its new Airflow concept vehicle at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

Chrysler CEO Christine Feuell said the unveiling would give customers an idea about the brand's design direction.

That as the North American automaker looks to remake itself and boost sales.

Chrysler aims to have its first EV ready by 2025, and then add more electric vehicles as it turns away from gasoline-powered engines.

Stellantis said last year it planned to invest more than $33 billion through 2025 in electrifying its vehicle lineup across its 14 brands, including Chrysler.

The company wants more than 70% of sales in Europe and 40% in the U.S. to be low-emission vehicles by 2030.

The automaker plans for most Chrysler vehicles to be able to drive 300 to 500 miles on a single charge.

Feuell did not say exactly how much funding the Chrysler brand would receive from Stellantis.

But she confirmed its lineup will expand beyond the 300 sedan and Pacifica minivan.
