Chrysler ecoVoyager Concept 2008
The Chrysler ecoVoyager Concept car was introduced at the 2008 North American Auto Show in Detroit. "The 2008 Chrysler ecoVoyager concept vehicle celebrates the romance of automobile travel embodied in a four-door, four-passenger, distinctively American automobile of spirited design", said Greg Howell, Chrysler ecoVoyager concept principal exterior designer. "While the the ecoVoyager's supple, flowing one-box shape is purposely designed to achieve aerodynamic efficiencies, it also pushes the Chrysler brand language in a new direction of 'elegant simplicity', by taking full advantage of the space normally occupied by a bulky conventional powertrain setup to drastically reduce the front overhang."
The Chrysler ecoVoyager's wheels are driven by an electric motor, with power primarily supplied by a lithium-ion battery pack capable of satisfying a daily commute of less than 64 kilometres. The electric motor develops 200 kilowatts (272 horsepower DIN), enabling acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than nine seconds. A regenerative braking system captures energy that would normally be lost and returns it to the battery, making the Chrysler ecoVoyager concept a very efficient and spacious vehicle.
The Chrysler ecoVoyager takes advantage of a range extender - in the case, a small, advanced hydrogen fuel cell - to extend the vehicle range for occasional long trips. With this advanced technology, the Chrysler ecoVoyager's total range is greater than 480 kilometres, while no emissions - beside water vapor - come from the tailpipe along the way.
Wth the entire propulsion system located below the Chrysler ecoVoyage'floor, space is maximised for utility of passenger and cargo. By placing the front wheels of the Chrysler ecoVoyager concept farther forward than usual, designers were able to create greater interior roominess and increased legroom, especially in the rear seats. The Chrysler ecoVoyager's four individual chairs are contoured for personilised comfort. The seat framing is exposed, with under-seat storage drawers.
