Stellantis is debuting a tech-filled Chrysler crossover concept during CES.
The electrified Airflow concept, which the automaker briefly showed during its EV Day event in July and at a software showcase last month, allows passengers to participate in video meetings using an integration of the displays, cameras and audio system.
The Airflow represents a "third space" for consumers that serves as a connected hub that enables their digital lifestyle to travel with them, Vince Galante, director of user experience design for Stellantis, said in a preview of the Airflow during Stellantis' Software Day. Galante said the model "isn't just a concept. It's something we're looking to bring to the market soon."
The crossover appears to be an evolution of the Airflow Vision concept that appeared during CES in 2020.
"We're actually working together with multiple partners to put an experience like the Airflow together," Galante said. "We hired [user-experience] designers with psychology backgrounds. To integrate all of this consumer electronics-like content, we hired mobile and Web designers, and then for all those amazing visuals that you see on the screen, we actually hired entertainment and gaming designers to help us put that together."
Stellantis plans to showcase an array of models during CES from DS, Citroen, Fiat and Jeep, including the 4xe plug-in hybrid variants of the Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. The automaker also expects to show the Citroen Skate Mobility concept that it says is an "autonomous and electric transport robot that moves around cities, paired with pods to offer fluid, shared and inventive urban mobility."
The company also will have a virtual display for people to check out the various vehicles.
