Several sources are coming together to suggest that an electric or hybrid-electric sedan similar to the Chrysler 200C concept will be built at the Brampton plant in calendar year 2011. The vehicle would have a range extender to bring it up to 200 miles.

While nothing definite is known, several sources have converged on this rumor.

Of course, more unnamed sources...however at least for once the speculation is about something positive. And Chrysler execs have dropped hints at the possibility of these being built.

Where is the money coming from to develop this car? Heaven? Besides, unless these EVs show a definite value advantage to buyers, they won't sell in big numbers. They'll sell at a loss -- just what Crysis Motors needs.

I would suspect it would offer traditional powertrains as well as the EV powertrain to widen it's appeal.

The ca itself is build on a modified version of the LX platform, so the platform wasn't just created from the ground up (like the Volt's). Big cost savings right there.

I hope so. This car would make an incredible replacement for the current pitiful Sebring. Imagine the Chrysler brand with a beautiful and competitive midsize car! Wow!

Has anyone noticed that the 200C has styling that looks like a Fiat?

Hmm....

:scratchchin:

Could this be so other Fiat products can be integrated into the Chrysler line-up?

Show me which Fiat please.

Looks like an evolution of Chrysler design language to those of us who aren't eager to try to desperately find a way to say "ZOMG IT LOOKS JUST LIKE [iNSERT BRAND HERE]'S CAR TRUCK AND SUV!!!!!"

I see no Pontiac badge, no FWD proportions, and no ribbing, so this car does not offer EXCITEMENT!!!!!

Another tidbit...on the Chrysler Advisory Board, reaction have been overwhelmingly positive for this car.

I'm keeping a careful watch on this car for any news actually confirming it. If they do, I'll be a very happy person.

and RWD! :spin:

That alone would make it stand out as a more premium choice in a crowded segment of FWD appliances. Something the Chrysler brand has needed for quite some time.

Isn't the volt on the delta platform like the Cruze?

It's actually a decent looking car IMO while still standing out in a crowd.

I like it..

Hmm, I think you're right, but I don't know for sure.

Oh, I certainly hope Chrysler can make this, make it beautiful, and high quality.

It'd be the best dream come true ever!
