The first Chrysler electric car is now said to be on target to be marketed and sold in 2010. This proclamation from Chrysler is vastly different from the perception, as recently as earlier this year, that the company was dragging woefully behind its domestic competitors in the electric-powered category.
Apparently, as it turns out, Chrysler has been secretly working on electric car technology all along. "The teams have been working on it for some time. We’ve had these products in the pipeline," said Chrysler President Tom LaSorda.
It seems that this news was even shocking to Chrysler dealership owners who have, not so quietly, complained about the company’s apparent lack of productivity in the electric car department.
The announced target is an obvious attempt to go head-to-head with rival GM’s release of their electric car, the Chevy Volt, in 2010. “Chrysler’s new owners are taking a bold step and dramatically shortening the time to market that is typical in the auto industry,” claims Dallas-based business consultant and luxury car rental agency owner Ron Sturgeon.
“Environmental concerns and fuel efficiency concerns make electric cars and hybrids something that can lure car buyers into the showroom,” says the Texan.
For those auto aficionados who want driving fun without ownership hassles, Sturgeon operates DFW Elite Auto Rental (www.dfweliteautorental.com). If you have always wondered what it’s like to drive a Ferrari F430 or Bentley GTC, DFW Elite Auto Rental can help you live the fantasy for a day, a weekend, or a week.
