Chrysler looks back, forward 100 years as Cerberus takes over

With the transition of Chrysler from Daimler to Cerberus now complete, Chrysler is relaunching in all sorts of ways, from a new ad campaign to fresh stuff on the website. Chrysler's new "about us" page features a look back and forward 100 years, and includes the following on the Pentastar's green future:

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS. Our concern for the environment has led to a number of firsts in green technology. Like being the first manufacturer to introduce the electric minivan, the first U.S. manufacturer to introduce CFC-free vehicles and the first car maker to sell one million Flex Fuel Vehicles. And for 2008, we expect to put another 500,000 Flex Fuel Vehicles on the road. We also offer the country's cleanest burning diesel with the available legendry 6.7L Cummins® featuring ultra-clean emissions technology, in a full-size pickup. Then there is the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine with MDS fuel-saving technology, and even a 5.7L HEMI V8 hybrid engine coming in 2009.

The big questions, of course, are what all these landmarks mean for Chrysler's future. Sure, ethanol-ready and hybrid cars are two options that automakers can reliably sell to car buyers today, but what are Chrysler's plans ten, twenty, thirty years down the road? We'll know soon enough, but let's just state for the record that as of today, there have been 75 posts on AutoblogGreen about Chrysler. Compare this to, say, 109 about Tesla and 356 about Toyota. Everyone knows green is the future for the auto world. Who is your money on?
