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.
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.
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 packup 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.
