Chrysler, a division of Stellantis, has announced plans to unveil an “innovative electric concept car” on February 13, offering a glimpse into the brand's electric future. The forthcoming concept is anticipated to provide insight into Chrysler's first electric vehicle slated for a 2025 release, as the brand transitions to a fully electric lineup by 2028.
While specific details about the concept remain undisclosed, Chrysler has released a teaser image hinting at the model's potential name—Halcyon. Defined as a period of idyllic happiness and peace, the choice of name suggests an aspirational theme for the concept.
The teaser image provides limited clues about the concept's design, with soft curves and an illuminated grille hinted at. Speculation suggests the possibility of dark blue accents indicating a solar roof, though Chrysler has not confirmed this detail.
Full details of the concept will be revealed next week, with Chrysler teasing additional glimpses of the vehicle on February 9 and 12. The official unveiling is scheduled for February 13 at 5:01 a.m. ET.
Although many questions remain unanswered, it is speculated that the concept will be based on the STLA Large platform introduced last month. This platform, acclaimed as the “most flexible BEV-native platform in the industry,” is capable of accommodating various vehicle types in the D and E segments, including sedans, crossovers, and SUVs.
Stellantis has confirmed that at least one future Chrysler model will utilize the STLA Large platform, offering battery pack options ranging from 85 to 118 kWh. These batteries are expected to provide sedan models with a range of up to 500 miles (805 km) on a single charge, aligning with the industry's push towards extended electric vehicle range capabilities.
