    Chrysler to Unveil Airflow Concept and Announce Roadmap for Brands Future at CES 2022.

      Omnicron Covid-19 Virus has turned CES 2022 from a physical show to a virtual show for many in the auto industry for January 2022 and Chrysler will show their future roadmap of electrified vehicles along with more details on the Chrysler Airflow Concept.

    During Stellantis EV Day and Software Day at the beginning of 2021, we now will get a more detailed look at the New Chrysler EV brand as they plan to unveil the first of many EVs in the 96-year history of the iconic brand as Stellantis plans to build back better Chrysler.

    The airflow as shown on Jay Leno's garage dates from 1934 and is now ready for a revival of the name in the all-new electric vehicle.

    The plans for Chrysler at the 2022 CES show is as follows:

    • Chrysler will introduce the Chrysler Airflow Concept and outline its future electrification strategy at CES 2022 in Las Vegas on January 5, 2022
    • CES 2022 will feature first public display of the Chrysler Airflow Concept, which was previewed in Stellantis EV Day and Software Day presentations earlier this year
    • Chrysler will share a roadmap for building on the iconic brand’s 96-years-plus reputation for innovative engineering, groundbreaking style and affordable luxury

    While the current concept was shown earlier this year at the Stellantis EV day, CES 2022 will be the start of the Chrysler revival as they show off the Chrysler Airflow as the first of a new portfolio of EVs.

    How much of the concept makes it into production and what all new changes and platform that will be used is expected to be touched on as CEO Chris Feuell will present on January 5th, 2022 @ 11am PST.

    Chrysler has had amazing success with their latest version of the Pacifica AWD Hybrid minivan with the most advanced AWD system in its class.

    Chrysler roadmap will show how they will deliver on their promise of iconic, elegant, executed autos for the 21st century delivering at an attainable value around the globe.

    Stellantis plans to have a showcase of electrification at the CES 2022 show as they will display the production Citroen Ami Urban EV, Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe equipped with the award-winning Uconnect 5 in-car-technology system, DS Automobiles Formula E race car, Fiat new 500 as well as the Chrysler Airflow.

    Looks super bland and boring, but if they make it totally anonymous looking then they can put a Chrysler bare on it in the USA, a Puegeot badge on it in France, and Opel badge in Germany, etc without changing anything more than the badge.

    And it's white and black..unoriginal and so boring of a color choice.   Doesn't have a bold grille like Chrysler is known for, could be anything...vaguely Volvo/Polestar in profile.  Is it a sedan? a hatchback?  maybe.  Interior looks decent, though.

    Anyone wanting an EV that wants to avoid dealer mark up, here is your answer.

    I wanted to laugh and upvote this but I could only choose one.

    Now that they have released actual images of the Chrysler Airflow and that it is near production ready, this is an impressive EV and should do well for Chrysler dealers.

    I hope it does do well, want to see Chrysler stick around well past its 100th. That said, it’s kinda forgettable.

    It seems pleasant but generic.  And the boring white w/ black top doesn't help. Very clean and modern, has the currently trendy slim lighting...but nothing really screams Chrysler to me.  

    Looks like something Stellantis can sell in Europe badged as a Peugeot, Citroen or DS with a few cosmetic changes.

    pleasantly generic, but also hopelessly forgettable is what I could also agree to.  I will also agree that it does not have any Mopar cues on it, which is a shame.  It does however have modern French styling and it will probably do well in Europe.  Hopefully it can do well here in North America too.

    • This is good stuff, I am glad Ford is expanding and helping the push to eV, the faster we go all EV and EV costs come down the better.  Also it is good they are investing the education side, because this country as a whole needs more people in Manufacturing, auto repair, auto body repair and trades in general.  We kind of got away from making things here and a lot of the people doing trade jobs are older, once they retire we are screwed if there aren't young people doing it too. 2 million EV's by 2026, Tesla is already there.  GM and Ford will probably have a good battle for #2 EV maker, what I don't see from Ford is the volume vehicles outside of F150, which the Lightning as it now is far outsold by the ICE version.  Mach-E isn't a volume product, Ford needs the $30k Escape EV that can sell huge numbers.  Lincoln is a dead brand, you aren't getting volume there.  Ford could do well with pickups and vans for the commercial market.
    • @surreal1272 Common Man, your popping his conspiracy bubble of false narrative about pricing on items that are not Tesla or Mercedes AMG Fan boy crazy prices cause an American Company has built auto's that are collectors items. 🤣 Here is just a portion of what I found in my neck of the woods and I see no price reduction like SMK is saying.
    • Good lord. Did you miss the limited production part of the Demon or do you somehow think there will be millions of them 20 years from now? It should be noted that the other cars you mentioned are all less than 20 years old too so maybe (skipping the fact that I routinely see CTS-V Wagons going for right at their original sticker with low miles), pick a spot and sitka with it because you can't have it both ways. A low mile limited production Demon will fetch above original price 20 years from now. They start at $69K and the Redeye starts at $76K so...go ahead and explain this...   And this...
    • Ouch another FORD Recall. They forgot to put in the proper circuit to allow Trailer Towing. Recall Alert: The 2023 Ford Maverick Can’t Tow (msn.com)
    • Used Hellcats right now are $50-85k for the most part, nothing is going to make those go up in value.  So I don’t see the last call demon selling for like $200k 20 years from now when there will be a ton of cheap hellcats and prior demons out there All the prior CTS-V’s, Camaros, Shelby Mustangs all depreciated.
