Is the Chrysler 300 Coming Back as an EV?

The Chrysler 300, an iconic American-made luxury sedan, is rumored to be sticking around for an EV evolution. The current generation dates back to 2011, so an upgrade would be highly welcomed by fans of the stately-looking car. 
As
Chrylser
looks to make the shift to a more electrified fleet, questions abound about how the once illustrious
American staple
, now owned by Dutch parent company, Stellantis, will reinvent itself. If the hearsay specs on the EV 300 are true, they might just be well on their way to a big comeback. 

Chrysler’s future EV plans and the 300

Plans for Chrysler’s first all-electric car, the Airflow, were debuted last year and it was heralded as the car to lead the limping company towards a new beginning. According to
Edmunds
, the 300 is likely to be hot on the heels of the Airflow with a debut sometime around 2026. 
Both of these new models would be a much-needed breath of fresh air for the company that now only has two models currently on the road, the 300 and the
Pacifica mini-van
. Chrysler has said it wants to completely phase out
gas-powered
cars by 2028. 

What will the Chrysler 300 EV entail?

The new 300 will be built on the STLA EV platform with an estimated range around an impressive 500 miles per charge. The platform will also entail an 800-volt architecture that allows fast charging and for the
battery pack
up to 118-kilowatt-hours in size. 
Both single and dual motor options will, reportedly, be offered, and the motor will contain 201 to 442 horsepower.  

All speculation for now

Mum’s the word from Stellantis for now as they haven’t officially announced the 300. The approach has been more of a trail of easter eggs starting with a slide of a 300 styled sedan on their battery day presentation last year. 
Stellantis design chief, Ralph Gilles, also mentioned the companies plan to make a long-range luxury sedan EV. Putting the pieces together, the 300 would make the most sense as other Stellantis subsidiaries, like Ram or Jeep, have never built a luxury car.
