Chrysler has been making the venerable Chrysler 300 since 2004. A luxury sedan that was forever immortalized in a series of ads as the flagship of the “Imported from Detroit” series of commercials starring world-renowned rapper Eminem. However, having enjoyed a strong 15-year production streak, FCA has announced that 2019 will be the final production year for the vehicle, and bringing something completely new to the table. In its place, Chrysler will begin production of something completely different, but no less exciting than when the 300 was first released.
A fully-electric minivan is a vehicle that does not exist in the American market, and Chrysler is moving forward with plans to bring their pioneer model, the Chrysler Portal, into production in 2020. An impressive display of both technology and efficiency, the Portal is reported to bring modern-day innovations like an in-vehicle wireless network together with a completely reconfigurable seating system, thanks to the track-mounted seating on every seat. It’s sure to help with carrying and transporting yourself, passengers, and whatever you’re all bringing along with you.
The appearance of the electric minivan is a sight to see, to be sure. The portal-inspired running lights on the sides of the vehicle light green or red depending if you’re opening or closing the door, and also glow yellow at the corresponding side while changing lanes. All of the doors of the vehicle are designed to slide open and closed, allowing for easy ingress and egress, as well as looking pretty cool.
