Fiat Chrysler won't hold a press conference at the Detroit auto show this week, but it will display a concept battery-electric minivan called the Chrysler Portal that was unveiled at CES in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Jan. 3.
The Portal features pairs of twin sliding doors that open to allow a 5-foot-wide access point to up to three rows of individually configurable, track-mounted seats. The seats can be moved forward and back, or be removed altogether.
The semiautonomous-capable vehicle is powered by a 100-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery pack mounted in the underbody and also uses a single electric motor to power the front wheels. The combination gives the Portal an estimated range of over 250 miles (400 kilometres), FCA said.
