Chrysler reinvents the minivan with its all-electric, autonomous Portal concept

[MUSIC] You probably already picked up on a few things that make the total concept distinctive. IT has the flat [UNKNOWN], lots of interior room, minimal overhang both front and rear. And [UNKNOWN] focus on giving millennials the value and flexibility that they demand. Another thing that makes this distinctive. Yes, the portable concept is a battery-electric vehicle. This all electric vehicle uses a single motor to drive the front wheels. The 100 kilowatt hour battery pack has more capacity than systems currently used. It's a flat pack which enables the flat load floor and it adds structural rigidity to the underbody. Which lowers the center of gravity and enhances ride and handling. Unlike many of today's all electric vehicles this one is designed for road trips. Free of charge anxiety. It has 250 miles of range with DC fast charging capability which charges up to 150 miles in just under 20 minutes, perfect for the quick pit stop. Focus on ease of use, we've [UNKNOWN] the charging port in the front and integrated the charge indicator into the evolved Chrysler Wing Batch. So you can check its status from the comfort of a window at Starbucks. [BLANK_AUDIO] One of the things I've enjoyed most about working on a proto-concept is coordinating with the various teams to make sure everything works together. There are so many ideas, sketches, lists of must-haves. And it was fun making sure that nothing was lost in translation. It sometimes felt like I was shopping in an exclusive automotive mall. All of the most futuristic, but realistic technologies were available and ready to be integrated. Collecting everything that was combined to make the ideal vehicle for millenials. The team is very proud of this Portal concept. It's totally wired for the future. The tuck away steering wheel that Cindy showed you. The user experience that Emilio explained, with its sophisticated graphics. The smart exterior lighting sequences that Matt demonstrated. All these have been designed to be upgradable to support full autonomous driving as technology advances. My point is, it's not just one individual feature that we've talked about today that makes the car perfect for the evolving Millennial lifestyle. It's how these ideas and futures come together to make that ideal third space. You see for this audience it's not about zero to 60 speed, or high horsepower, although I have to say like any electric vehicle this one has amazing torque. But for the people interested in this car, smart is the new sexy. The portal concept delivers everything we know millennials want, modular components, flexible space Upgradeable technologies and affordability. It's designed to scale up and down as needed, offering lasting value by adapting to their changing needs.
