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.

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.

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.
