For a glimpse at the next generation of family transportation, Chrysler has unveiled the Chrysler Portal concept vehicle at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017. The Chrysler Portal was designed by millennials for millennials, with a forward-thinking interpretation of the “fifth generation” of family transportation.
Electric Range and Fast Recharge
The electric-powered Chrysler Portal concept was designed for modern efficiency, with an estimated range of over 250 miles on a full charge. For convenience, a DC Fast Charge (350 kW) can recharge the battery pack with 150 miles of range in less than 20 minutes.
Modern Adaptable Interior
Designed from the inside out, the interior of the Chrysler Portal concept features a “third space” — an open and serene atmosphere that bridges work and home, and is designed to grow with a young family by maximizing interior space with flexible seating and cargo configurations. Premium seating is standard for all occupants with thin-design seats that fold flat, fold up and slide on a track system for ultimate flexibility.This enables the seats to move the full length of the vehicle and, if needed, to be removed easily from the rear of the vehicle.
For tech-savvy millennials, the Chrysler Portal concept enables users to include and expand their social media communities. The in-vehicle wireless network seamlessly integrates with mobile devices to enable social sharing among passengers and internet cloud-based applications. To make sure your mobile devices have the power to match your electric driving range, up to eight docking stations, located in the instrument panel and seats, can be used for charging and securing phones and tablets.
The Chrysler Portal concept makes a new statement with a clean, simple design amplified by refined lines along the body and a strong, planted stance. It is anchored by illuminated, portal-shaped side openings with articulating front and rear doors for easy loading and unloading of people and cargo. When it comes to performance, the Chrysler Portal concept features a suite of sensing technologies that enable SAE Level Three semi-autonomous driving mode, with the option to upgrade to Level Four autonomous driving, if desired. In addition, Vehicle-to-X (V2X) communication enables the vehicle and infrastructure to “talk” to each other, such as intersection crash warning, traffic sign recognition and emergency vehicle approaching.
The Chrysler Portal concept was created in collaboration with supplier partners who shared their innovations and expertise to bring to life future technologies. These partners include Adient, Magneti Marelli, Panasonic Automotive and Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
