Chrysler To Sell Electric Car In 2010

AUBURN HILLS, MI — Chrysler says it will have an electric car for sale in North America in 2010.

The automaker today put on display three electric prototypes. They are a Dodge sports car, a Jeep and a Chrysler minivan. Chrysler is still deciding which vehicle will drive into showrooms in two years.

While the Dodge sports car is completely electric, the Jeep Wrangler and Chrysler minivan models would rely on a recharging system similar to GM’s Chevrolet Volt.

Toyota is rushing to bring a plug-in electric vehicle to market in 2010. Ford says it is five years away from producing them in significant numbers.
