Chrysler will be getting some help on the project from Professor Chris Mi at University of Michigan - Dearborn. Chrysler will be sharing $3.1 million of the $48 million grant it received as part of a stimulus bill plug-in development program. Mi will be developing a lab for the testing and characterization of electronics, batteries, motors and control systems. Chrysler hopes to have a test fleet of PHEV Rams on the road sometime in 2011.
