After we were spoiled the Dodge Circuit last night, it wasn't exactly a surprise to see it on the Chrysler display stand this afternoon (still, we'll have a brief write-up, pics and a video for you in a little bit). What was a surprise was this new 200C EV Concept that drove up on stage.
The 200C EV is a plug-in hybrid sedan that uses ENVI's Range-extended Electric Vehicle technology, and the car boasts some great numbers and the looks to match: a 40-mile all-electric range, a 400-mile range with a full charge of the lithium-ion battery and a full tank, and a top speed of over 120 miles-per-hour.
Since you could be on the road for quite a while in a vehicle like this, Chrysler thought the interior should be appealing; at the very least, it's high-tech. Chrysler's new uConnect information/entertainment system brings the internet, your iPhone, your home digital media and pretty much every digital sink you can think of into a car. There's a touch screen tablet in the glove box that lets the passengers control all sorts of navigation or music/internet options. Read all about after the jump.
The big questions: When will we ever see this - or any sedan based on this concept - outside of an auto show? Or will Chrysler's "Project D" just end up being a rebadged Nissan?
