This week in Las Vegas, at the annual CES conference, the up-and-coming Chrysler brand will serve as a demonstration platform for the sophisticated technology and design that Stellantis has in store for the future.
Stellantis has introduced yet another Chrysler-badged concept car, this time with the intention of demonstrating the brand’s potential for the future. Currently, Chrysler only has two models available for purchase: the Pacifica minivan and the 300 sedan. The manufacturer has stated that the 300 will be removed from its portfolio sometime during this year.
The Chrysler Airflow Concept was unveiled by the firm for the first time in 2018, and it was a clean mobility vehicle aimed to highlight future interior and technology design of the brand in preparation for the 2025 launch of the company’s first battery-electric car.
By the year 2028, Chrysler will have an all electrified product lineup.
The new Chrysler Synthesis Cockpit, which has only two seats, serves as a center for three technologies that the business has previously shown. These technologies are the STLA Brain, the STLA Smart Cockpit, and the STLA AutoDrive.
It is based on the concept of “Harmony in Motion,” which, according to Chrysler, exemplifies the harmonic integration of “product, technology, purchase, and ownership.” The design centers around this concept.
The STLA Brain is the concept’s nerve center; it is an electrical architecture that aims to integrate sophisticated technologies across the command center, which is the infotainment screen that is linked to the dashboard and measures 37.2 inches.
The STLA Smart Cockpit is the portion of the infotainment system that is visible to the user.
The car manufacturer claims in a press statement that the system is also able to run a virtual personal assistant that is able to manage the digital lifestyle of the consumer across all of their gadgets, including those at home, at work, and on their own person.
In order to accomplish this goal, the technology that is included into the idea has a number of distinct characteristics. MyDay combines the user’s calendars and schedules with information about the vehicle’s charge level in order to assist the user in determining the most optimal time to charge the car and in developing an intelligent journey plan for the day.
Vehicle Welcome employs biometric identification to provide a “welcome” through virtual personal assistant. The Genesis GV60 electric SUV already has a function that is quite similar to this one.
The Chill/Zen/Fun Modes provide the passengers of the car with a sensory experience when the model is either parked or driving autonomously. This experience may include activities like as meditation, karaoke, and a DJ game.
STLA Drive provides a level of autonomous driving technology known as Level 3, which enables the driver to take their hands off the steering wheel while simultaneously taking their eyes off the road.
Over-the-air (OTA) technology enables all of these systems to get software updates whenever they become available. Numerous automobiles now available on the market today are equipped with OTA technology.
The components come together to form a concept car that is more compact but yet contemporary, roomy, and environmentally friendly. The seats are upholstered in leather that has been vegetable-tanned and have soft trim that has been repurposed from other materials. The instrument panel for the recycled mélange heather concept car from Chrysler is built entirely from of post-industrial and ocean plastics. Walnut planks are used to cover the floor.
