The 2022 Chrysler 300 Trim By Trim

Monday, May 9th, 2022

The 2022 Chrysler 300 is the American standard of what a luxury sedan should look and act like. It’s currently available in a 300 Touring, 300 Touring L, and fast-paced 300S. Choosing between these all depends on one budget and particular preferences, here are some elements to consider.

2022 Chrysler 300 Touring

MSRP at $35,140

The 300 Touring is the entry-level model of the 300 lineup. It comes with the famous and trustworthy 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine, with a stellar output of 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The motor is also paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which according to Consumer Reports, allows for faster acceleration. On top of this, the Touring model amounts to a suitable 22 mpg combined.

This big brute also comes with an expansive interior and comfortable seating. The interior also features an easy-to-use Uconnect 4C with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and backup camera. Users will find that the Uconnect is highly intelligent and compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

2022 Chrysler Touring L 

MSRP at $38,340

The 300 Touring L is a bit of an upgrade from the base Touring, as it consists of plushy leather upholstery, heated seats, and a set of glossy 18-inch wheels. It is worth noting, however, that there is no optional V8 for the Touring L as it also journeys with the Pentastar V6 and 8-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) system also serves as an option for Touring L and Touring trims, which consumers living in states with harsh winter conditions will appreciate.

2022 Chrysler 300S

MSRP at $43,750

The 300 S sedan is the highest and finest trim of them all. It gives its buyers the option to pick between the 3.6L V6 and the mighty 363 horsepower V8 engine. Along with the extra comfort of this model, the 300S has upgrades that are aesthetically pleasing, such as a unique grille design and wheels.

The V6 vs. The V8?

The Chrysler 300 is quite comfortable for all five of its occupants. The 300S can be had with the optional V8 engine. In comparison, the V6 accelerates the 300 to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds, while the V8 equipped 300S will zoom out in 5.3 seconds. One should know that V8 buyers will end up trading fuel economy for horsepower, as the V8 requires a lot more energy than the Pentastar.

The V8 motor is also matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission, perfect for making smooth shifts and cruising along the freeway. Along with its high-life performance, the engineers have tuned its suspension into one made for a race car driver. The 300S also has a sport mode with paddle shifters further supporting that added athleticism.

All Of The Reasons To Buy A 2022 Chrysler 300

Tuesday, April 5th, 2022

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

Friday, April 1st, 2022

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.

Stellantis Shows Its Support For Ukraine

Thursday, March 24th, 2022

Chrysler Stands With Ukraine

Subsidiary of Stellantis, Chrysler, recently announced its commitment to donating $1.1 million or 1 million euros in humanitarian aid for refugees and civilians in Ukraine, as a response to those displaced because of the Russian invasion.

According to a news release, the car company said that it would work via a local, non-governmental organization to aid the effort. This is following Ford’s announcement that it would use the Ford Fund to donate $100,000 to the Global Giving Ukraine Relief Fund.

In the release, the CEO of Stellantis, Carlos Tavares said that the company condemns violence and aggression and that its focus “in this time of unprecedented pain” is the health and safety of its Ukrainian employees and families.

In the release, Tavares said, “An aggression that shook a world order, already unsettled by uncertainty, has been launched. The Stellantis community, made of 170 nationalities, looks with dismay as civilians flee the country. Even if the scale of causalities is not yet apparent, the human toll will be unbearable.”

Stellantis, which is also the owner of Jeep, Ram, Dodge and Fiat brands, has staffers in Russia and Ukraine. The fate of three of the automaker’s 71 Ukrainian personnel was initially unclear, but Wednesday, (March 2nd), spokeswoman Lilia Mokroussova revealed that they were all safe.

The car manufacturer also said that it has a “24/7” support team that monitors the health and safety of those staffers.

According to Mokroussova, Stellantis’s plant in Kaluga, Russia was up and running. In spite of this, the future is still uncertain, particularly regarding the Western sanctions. 

Other car companies, such as Ford and General Motors have revealed that they are ceasing their operations in Russia.

Chrysler’s parent company also commented, “whatever the business consequences, Stellantis will apply all of the sanctions decided.”

Electrified Ways Chrysler Is Giving Back

The brand known for its family-friendly Pacifica minivans and once-popular 300 sedan aims for car lovers to give it a different look. The goal is to reinvent itself into a fully-electric car company by 2028, as they announced in January of this year.

Their new Chrysler Airflow crossover concept market the start of these plans, as it was unveiled virtually for the CES (Consumer Technology Association) technology show in Las Vegas. The tech-centered car is “a nod” to a car that the automaker aims to release in 2025, as said by Chrysler CEO Christine Feuell.

Feuell also said that the untitled production crossover will be the first of at least two of three new fully-electric models, including a minivan, scheduled by 2028. Chrysler will take the lead of Stellantis’s $35.5 billion electric vehicle plans.

“When we sought to redefine and revitalize the Chrysler brand, we needed to make sure that we were creating differentiation within the Stellantis portfolio as well as compared to the competition,” she told CNBC during an online interview. “We will be adding one new product per year once we launch our first new product … and expanding that lineup between then and 2028.”

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Is Honored By Autotrader

Monday, March 14th, 2022

Autotrader Best Car Interiors

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Limited has something worth being excited about, as it’s been chosen by Autotrader for a spot on its Best Car Interiors Under $50,000 for 2022 list. This ranking puts a spotlight on affordable new cars, with high-quality interiors.

“The features and quality of new-car interiors have grown by leaps and bounds over the last several years,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “Even as new-car prices have increased in the last few years as a result of pandemic-induced supply shortages, car shoppers can rest assured that many of today’s affordable vehicles offer interior features that were available only on luxury vehicles not too long ago.”

Autotrader recognized the inner workings of the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica Limited for its accommodation of younger passengers, unique storage configuration, connectivity and easy-access features, during which it offered adults a premium-like design, generous seating and space, and charming finishes and materials throughout the rolling lodge. A highlight of the Pacifica is its famous and class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating, along with the Uconnect 5 system, which has a user experience that is truly intuitive.

Additionally, the 2022 Ram 1500 Laramie earned a spot on the list as well thanks to its standard leather-trim 40/20/40 front bench seat and six-passenger seating. According to Autotrader, the Ram 1500 Laramie cabin balances boldness and “confident elegance”. It also notes that the most intriguing interior feature is its shield-formed center stack that inholds the infotainment touchscreen and control array.

Chrysler Pacifica

Chrysler and its parent company, Stellantis, continue to make headway in the minivan segment, specifically regarding its 2022 Chrysler Pacifica. This minivan holds the rank as the first of its kind to offer both gas and hybrid powertrains, it’s also still the only minivan to offer a plug-in hybrid. The Pacifica lineup involves the deluxe Pinnacle model, which has the most affluent features in its class. 

This vehicle also has a sporty exterior design, available all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability matched with the brand’s class-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seating, more standard safety features than any vehicle in the industry, a FamCAM interior camera that has a bird’s-eye view of rear-facing child-seat occupants, next-generation Uconnect 5 connectivity, capability and interior storage.

The Pacifica’s hybrid version, obviously named Pacifica Hybrid, provides over 80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode, a fully-electric range of over 30 miles and a total range of over 500 miles. This hybrid minivan involves a comprehensive dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) matched with a purposely modified version of a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine. This powertrain helps to ease range anxiety and nearly ensures pure contentment to customers. The Pacifica Hybrid was made to provide a seamless driving experience, without requiring the driver to select between electric and hybrid modes.

Year after year, the Chrysler Pacifica maintains its status as the minivan with the most recognition for six consecutive years, with over 160 honors and industry accolades. The Chrysler brand succeeded in marketing and selling six generations of this vehicle, and innovating 117 firsts in the process, including almost 40 minivan-first features on its Pacifica. The automaker has sold over 15 million minivans globally since 1983, that’s double the amount of any other manufacturer in the past 37 years.

Stellantis Stands To Make A Big Profit From Its Electric Models

Thursday, March 10th, 2022

Stellantis’s New Business Plans

Stellantis, previously dubbed Fiat Chrysler, aims to double its net revenues, specifically 300 billion euros or $335 billion by 2030, as announced last Tuesday by CEO Carlos Tavares.

During an investor presentation, highlighting Stellantis’s business plans through 2020, Tavares said that the automaker’s strategy in doubling the operating profit margin is maintaining double digits in the operating profit margin as it makes moves to make a full-on transition to electric vehicles.

The plans mimic that of other big-name car manufacturers with examples like Volkswagen and General Motors to remain gainful while shifting to fully-electric cars. Global emission regulations have strongly led to the influence on automakers to make the electric transmission and Tesla has certainly taken the most advantage of this rise, becoming the world’s most valued car market, in regards to the market cap.

Stellantis, which is ranked as the 4th largest car manufacturer, plans on expanding its software-based companies and services, selling million fully-electric models by 2030, which also involves passenger car sales in Europe and 50 percent passenger vehicles and light-duty trucks in North America.

“We are moving, and we are moving fast to be a mobility-tech company,” Tavares said during the presentation.

Chrysler’s parent company aims to accumulate over 20 billion euros ($22.3 billion) in industrial free cash flow by 2030. On top of this, it’s aiming towards a 25-30 percent dividend payout ratio and plans on repurchasing up to 5 percent of outstanding common shares through 2025.

The company also says that they’re progressing towards carbon-neutrality by 2028, aiming towards a 50 percent reduction by 2030.

Despite these announcements, the company’s stock figures didn’t show much change. Stellantis shares from New York’s Stock Exchange actually went down 8 percent, at $16.82 a share earlier this month.

The merger of Fiat Chrysler and France-based Groupe PSA in January of last year (2021) created Stellantis. This unification resulted in 14 separate automotive brands, including Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, and Peugeot.

Stellantis aims to release a minimum of 25 new fully-electric cars in North America by 2030, according to Tavares. Amid the first will be a small Jeep SUV in 2023, along with a Dodge muscle car and Ram pickup the year after. On a global scale, the automaker should be set to offer over 75 electrics by 2030.

Additionally, Stellantis is backing 30 billion euros ($34 billion) in EVs and financing technologies through 2025.

The automaker’s electrified strategy, which is close to term, is different from other car manufacturers. The reason is that it still aims to release plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in the coming years. PHEV models fuse electric systems and batteries with internal combustion engines.

Electrified Chrysler and Jeep Models Are Getting New Wall Chargers

Monday, January 24th, 2022

New Wall Chargers

For those who currently own an adventurous Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe or Jeep Wrangler 4xe, or perhaps even a family-oriented Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, Mopar, the parts and service division of Stellantis, is bringing in a useful piece of new gear that should provide more practicality in the ownership experience. Owners will soon be in possession of a new at-home wall charger that comes either as a plug-in or hardwired version, and supplies 7.7 kW of power.

With these means, a full charge can be provided to Stellantis electrics in just two hours, which is six times faster than its current Level 1, 120-volt charger. Further tacking on suitability, the new Level 2 unit brings along Wi-Fi connectivity which enables owners to keep track and control the charging of their car through a mobile app or web portal.

Energy Star, a program run by the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy, has certified every new charging unit and has also optimized for a balance between accessibility, effectiveness, and cost. Doing this makes it easier for buyers to reduce their energy consumption and lower their spending by having the option charge at low-rate times. Additionally, this makes a way for them to engage in energy credit programs, if they’re available.

The Mopar division says that the wall charger is portable, lightweight, lockable, and weatherproof, meaning that it’s an ideal piece of equipment for indoors and outdoors. The suggested retail price is $599, and each unit comes with a three-year warranty. One can also order the unit with a Chrysler and Jeep-branded faceplate.

“Our new factory-backed at-home Level 2 plug-in charging units offer a quick, seamless charging solution for Jeep 4xe and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid owners,” said Mark Bosanac, North America vice president, Mopar Service, Parts & Customer Care. “At Mopar, we’ll continue to enhance the customer experience and expand our electric-vehicle portfolio of accessories.”

Mopar’s new wall charger signifies what we should expect out of the Stellantis Group during this decade, as their products are currently on grease wheels regarding its electrified products. One of these products includes the Chrysler Airflow concept, which is a preview of how the manufacturer is aiming to expand into a principally-electric company by 2028 by exploiting all of the capabilities of the STLA Large electric platform.

Earlier this month we discussed how Chrysler announced its plans to release its first electric model by 2025. So far, the plan is to introduce the Airflow as a crossover that is energized by a dual-motor and has enough battery capacity to get up to 400 miles of range. Outside of that, the car may also have new connectivity features that include an operating system dubbed the STLA Brain, which will make way for over-the-air updates.

The Chrysler Airflow Concept Is Leading Us 400 Miles Away

Monday, January 3rd, 2022

Chrysler Airflow

The Chrysler company is planning on using the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show, located in Las Vegas on Wednesday (January, 5th), to announce its plans to release its first electric model by 2025, and with the intention of eventually having a full-on electric lineup by 2028.

Foretasting just what the electric future looks like with Chrysler, the brand will introduce its Airflow Concept, an electric crossover powered by a dual-motor and enough battery capacity to get up to 400 miles of range.

Outside of the powertrain, the Airflow may also have new connectivity features that we should potentially see in Chrysler vehicles sooner rather than later. These features include an operating system dubbed the STLA Brain, which will make way for over-the-air updates.

Additionally, there is an interface called the STLA SmartCockpit, which encompasses touchscreen displays for the instrument cluster, central infotainment hub, and one reserved for the front seat passenger. The automaker said that its concept also has a camera facing each seat, allowing occupants to engage in a video conference call if they’d like.

STLA AutoDrive is the third future tech preview, this is considered to be the branding for future driving-assist features of Stellantis, which will eventually include self-driving systems. It is said that the Airflow will be geared with a self-driving system rated at Level 3 on the SAE scale of self-driving capability. While it wasn’t mentioned as to what situations that the concept can hold its own in, the Level 3 rating signifies that, in certain situations, the Airflow can handle itself, however, the driver should be ready to take back control at any time.

Avid fans of the company may be well aware that the Airflow nameplate dates back to 1934. The original Airflow model was actually a family of models, and it was the first production car made for low aerodynamic drag by the use of a wind tunnel. This feature gave the car a unique streamlined design, which proved not to be agreeable with the tastes of the majority of buyers at the time. While the car company soon made design adjustments, it dropped the Airflow altogether after 1937.

The original Airflow was certainly a flop, but its weight on aerodynamics, along with its all-steel setup, set the mood for future models. Considering the significance of a low drag coefficient for optimizing efficiency and range, the revived nameplate seems best suited for the all-new EV.

While Chrysler hasn’t revealed much in terms of specifics regarding its new plans, it is known that the manufacturer has access to a total of four platforms for electrics being made by its parent company, Stellantis. The platforms will have up to 500 miles of range and provide up to 4.3 kWh/mile efficiency in some models, as said by Stellantis.

The parent company has also signed a memorandum of understanding with LG Energy Solution for anticipated battery supply in the U.S., and is also backing solid-state battery developer, Factorial.

However, Stellantis CEO, Carlos Tavares has said that the additional cost of constructing electrics is “beyond the limits” for what the industry can sustain.

For the time being, the only plug-in vehicle that is currently available is the Pacifica Hybrid minivan. Other available models are the traditional gasoline-powered Pacifica and the 300 sedan.

Miami Lakes Chrysler

Although we may have to wait a while for Chrysler’s new electric concept, you’ll never have to wait for anything at Miami Lakes Chrysler. We sell a superb bundle of vehicles from the brand that range in various shapes and prices, such as with their Pacifica Hybrid minivan or full-size 300 sedan.

Chrysler’s Airflow EV Is More Than Just A Concept

Monday, December 20th, 2021

Chrysler Airflow EV Concept

At long last! Chrysler revealed its first new models in several years, and it appears to be in the form of an electric crossover. More specifically, a crossover that could potentially flaunt the classic Airflow nameplate. This new car was first shown during parent company Stellantis’ EV Day event at the beginning of this year. Now, more information has been revealed regarding this concept piece, which is supposed to display new technology, which encompass electric platforms, driver-assistance features, and infotainment software.

On Software Day, CEO of Stellantis, Carlos Tavares said during the company’s presentation that its “more than a pure concept” and suggested that this car could arrive in production by 2024, backed by North American trademarks for the Airflow name, which was filed in 2019 and again this year (2021).

It isn’t an accident that Chryler’s new model nearly mirrors the shape and proportions of Ford’s Mustang Mach-E. Car and Driver’s winner of EV of the Year is already seeing success in sales in the car market. Although we don’t know the precise size of the Airflow, it seems highly probable that it will serve as a competitor for the Mach-E and other electric compact crossovers like Tesla’s Model Y and Volkswagen’s ID.4.

Stellantis has already announced their intentions to build four new EV platforms, which encompass: STLA Small, STLA Medium, STLA Large, and STLA Frame. It’s quite possible that the Airflow would end up on STLA Medium. According to previous statements Stellantis has made about its new electric models, this means that it could reach a driving range of up to 440 miles and use electric motors that produce between 167 and 241 horsepower. It’s also likely that there will be an all-wheel-drive (AWD) dual-motor option.

Inward, the Airflow features an exciting bundle of screens, starting with a large central infotainment display that’s sandwiched between separate screens for the driver and passenger. There are also entertainment screens for the rear seats. Connectivity features will presumably involve over-the-air updates and vehicle-to-vehicle communication.

Although the timeline of the production of Chrysler’s Airflow certainly isn’t concrete, we can deduce from the fact that it has side marker lights and exterior mirrors that it will arrive in showrooms a bit sooner than we might expect. Stellantis is aiming at 2024 for its new platforms, so it’s plausible that this Chrysler model will make its way to North America by 2025.
