New owners, new focus: Chrysler seriously looks at alternatives
Chrysler already has two hybrid models ready for launch in 2009, a Dodge Durango and a Chrysler Aspen, that use a hybrid system developed in partnership with GM and BMW. However, officials at Chrysler see pure electric or full-hybrid powertrains as the future and not the current practice of converting existing vehicles to hybrid.
Chrysler is also lacking main rivals GM and Ford, which have already displayed a new generation of plug-in hybrid concepts, but the creation of the ENVI is definitely a step in the right direction.
