The first electric sportsauto brought by Chrysler will make 268 hp

Hard times but Chrysler keeps the chin up, unveiling the EV electric concept at the Auto Show in Detroit. The production variant of the concept will be revealed in 2010. This forward thinking, amazing sportscar will run by lithium-ion battery high-tech and have a 268 HP top output.

The EV unit is able to reach 60 MPH right from standstill in less than 5 seconds, hitting a 120 MPH maximum speed. The production variant will be a plug-in unit purely. There will be no gas tank and no trace of internal combustion in the engine. Their battery wrap should provide just enough juice, power, cruising for 150 - 200 miles, this before the recharge.

After the EV sportscar' success, Chrysler reveals electric-powered autos, crossovers and SUVs. This... if the American car giant can really survive their proceedings on Chapter 11.
