The Chrysler Airflow Reconceptualized In A Graphite Form

Last week, (Apr, 13), Chrysler unveiled its Graphite-formed version of its fully-electric Airflow Concept, specifically at the 2022 New York International Auto Show.

Originally presented at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Chrysler Airflow Concept was re-introduced in a new Graphite formation, offering a redefining what the future of the brand looks like as it heads towards an eco-friendly future.

This new version of the Airflow features a new Galaxy Black exterior with a Cyprus Copper interior. Accents on the outer body accentuate the sleekness and refined aura of the Graphite Concept’s official global auto show introduction.

The automaker also revealed at CES in January that it would launch its first battery-electric vehicle (BEV) by 2025 and offer a fully-electrified vehicle lineup for Chrysler by 2028.

“The Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept, the latest version of our all-electric concept, represents the many possibilities on our brand’s road to an all-electric future,” said Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand CEO – Stellantis. “This new persona of the Airflow highlights the flexibility of the Chrysler brand’s future design direction and our ability to create personalities reflective of our diverse customers. As our brand evolves to offer a full battery-electric vehicle portfolio, we are completely rethinking and reinventing the customer experience. Project Ingenuity is an initiative in which we collaborate with customers on our future innovations and services, offering uniquely personalized and delightful customer experiences throughout the purchase, service and ownership journey.”

Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept

During the early stages of the development of the Airflow, there were a slew of possible designs for the fully-electric model, which included the Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept.

The revamped Airflow Graphite Concept involves a Galaxy Black exterior body color. It was derived from the idea of sophistication and an urban feel, making one feel, “at home navigating amid big city skylines” as said by the parent company’s media site, Stellantis Media. The Galaxy Black hue also has a dramatic contrast to the Arctic White exterior that was initially shown on the Airflow Concept at CES. 

This new exterior paint job is combined with Cyprus Copper accents on the outside, as well as the inside, to mark the Graphite Concept with its own cultured and polished design. The  Cyprus Copper accents also highlight the top of the panoramic glass roof, along with the certain surfaces of the 22-inch wheels.

The interior of the latest Airflow interaction can be described as regal and spacious. It implements the light Ice Grey and warm Cyprus Copper accents to create a rich and deluxe feel. This cabin exudes the essence of a first-class lounge and provides the ultimate comfort, acting as a sort of home away from home. There are also premium features and finishes, which involve sustainable materials and a soothing color palette, which only enhances the comforting feel.

All Of The Reasons To Buy A 2022 Chrysler 300

Despite the rising popularity of SUVs and crossovers, the 2022 Chrysler 300 sedan still manages to stand out… for all of the right reasons. Offered with an MSRP of $32,215, (plus destination fee), the car still has all of the great features that it had before, along with stellar driving dynamics, a spacious interior, and fun in-car features. Here are All Of The Reasons To Buy A 2022 Chrysler 300.

Optional V8 Motor

One of the most enticing features of the Chrysler 300 is its optional 5.7-liter HEMI naturally aspirated V8 engine, which is matched with a 8-speed automatic transmission. Of course, the performance is the most outstanding of its segment, with an output of 363 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque, this car can zoom from 0-60 mph in just 5.3 seconds.

The transmission is quick to respond and there is a suitable amount of grip, even for the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) model.

Enormous Cabin

Another thing that Chrysler’s 300 sedans are known for is being plentiful in cabin space. There is more than enough shoulder and headroom for five all five occupants, the best in its class. The legroom is also promising. Leather upholstery and other conveniences are also provided on higher trims.

Getting in and out of the rear seats is quite easy, especially with the car’s fairly wide opening. While inside, there is superb space and comfort for three adults, which is one area that the 300 totally dismembers the competition. Other elements like the under-thigh and lower back support are equally exceptional. Truck capacity also amounts to 16.3 cu ft.

Design That Stands The Test Of Time

It’s not often that a car company is able to create a design that is successfully recycled for years on end, but Chrysler seemingly made an evergreen style for its 300. This deluxe offering will make anyone feel like royalty. In fact, it was previously the go-to car for many celebrities and politicians from its first inception. Exterior elements like the sharp LED headlights, bold front-end design, and charming and clean character lines are what make this car an absolute head-turner.

There are six color combinations that are offered with this vehicle, all of which help highlight the All-American design language. There are also small hints and touches like 20″ wheels, chrome window lining, LED tail lights, and the blacked-out elements that just scream: “I’m important to onlookers.”

Spectacular Infotainment System

The brand’s Uconnect 8.4″ touchscreen infotainment system is a part of the many standard features across the three trims. Front seat passengers will revel in the easy-to-use and high-quality touch-sensitive interface.

With the 300, there will be plenty of entertainment options at your disposal with features such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM radio, in-dash navigation, and Bluetooth connectivity. Is worth noting, however, that some of these are only accessible through the Comfort Package. The 9-speaker Alpine audio system is also another delightful touch to the Chrysler in-car experience.

Stellantis’s $4 Billion Investment Into Windsor and U.S. Battery Plants

Stellantis and LG Energy Solution in South Korea have announced that they are investing $4 billion to construct an electric vehicle battery plant, which will be located in Windsor, Ontario.

The parent company of Chrysler revealed their new plant Wednesday (March 23rd), and also said that they’re aiming to build a second battery plant at a location in the States, as said by Mark Stewart, chief operating officer for Stellantis in North America. He says that the investment in these places will showcase the brand’s electrification plans.

“It shows … we are absolutely committed to 50% EVs, full on (battery electric vehicles), by the end of the decade,” Stewart said during a press conference from Windsor, which aired via Facebook.

Stellantis previously revealed its agreement with Samsung SDI, a storage battery manufacturing company (based in South Korea) for the U.S., however, Stewart didn’t explicitly mention Samsung as being its additional collaborator for batteries. On top of this, the automaker is aiming for three plants in Europe, revealing in a separate announcement that it’s working to turn the brand’s Termoli plant in Italy into a battery facility, as part of a partnership with Mercedes-Benz.

Construction on the 220-acre in Windsor will likely start later this year, as production is set to launch during the first quarter of 2024, as told in a joint announcement and the press conference. It’s expected to be the first comprehensive EV battery plant in Canada, which also claims to create 2,500  new jobs.

The companies didn’t specify which vehicles would be supplied by the plant’s lithium-ion battery cells and modules, just that it would “meet a significant portion” the company’s production needs in the U.S. Regardless, in tuned with plans for an electric Ram 1500 pickup and Dodge muscle car, which are brands that Stellantis also owns.

Stewart also mentioned that the battery plant would supply the production of vehicles across the States.

Carlos Tavares, Stellantis’s CEO, talked about the company’s plans, which involve $35 billion (30 billion euros) investments, in relation to EVs, across its 14 brands through 2025.

“Our joint venture with LG Energy Solution is yet another stepping stone to achieving our aggressive electrification roadmap in the region aimed at hitting 50 percent of battery electric vehicle sales in the U.S. and Canada by the end of the decade,” Tavares said in a news release. “We are grateful to the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government for their support and commitment to help position Canada as a North American leader in the production of electric vehicle batteries.”

The release didn’t go into detail regarding the nature of public support for the operations, but it did say that every level of government was in full support of the operation.

The release also noted the Windsor region is home to Canada’s largest automotive cluster.

The global semiconductor chip shortage, along with the recent trucker protest that shut down the Ambassador Bridge, highlight the challenges the car industry has faced.

The announcement expressed that the companies “expect the plant to serve as a catalyst for the establishment of a strong battery supply chain in the region. Canada is committed to establishing a broad, local battery ecosystem by leveraging, among other things, its leadership in the generation of electricity from renewable sources.”

Youngsoo Kwon, CEO of LG Energy Solution, said “through this joint venture, LG Energy Solution will be able to position itself as a critical player in building green energy value chains in the region. Creating a joint venture battery manufacturing company in Canada, recognized as one of the leading nations in renewable energy resources, is key for LG Energy Solution as we aim to power more electric vehicles around the world.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau mentioned in a news release that the “announcement of a world leading facility to build electric vehicle batteries in Windsor is an investment in our workers, our communities and our future. Partnerships like these are critical to creating new jobs and putting Canada on the cutting edge of the clean economy.”

Drew Dilkens, Windsor Mayor, also shared in a news release that Stellantis is Windor’s largest employer, with Chrysler’s operations going back to 1925.

“With this announcement, we are securing the future for thousands more local workers and securing Windsor’s strategic location as the home of Canada’s electric vehicle future. As the world pivots to EVs, Windsor will soon be home to the battery manufacturing facility that powers it all,” Dilkens said in the release.

Michelle Krebs, an executive analyst for Autotrader, said the news is significant for Canadian auto workers.

“It’s good news for Stellantis’ employees in Canada, who have been worried about where they stand with their jobs. We’ll be looking forward to seeing where Stellantis will be making its EVs,” she said.
