Chrysler Portal Concept: prototype electric and driving autonomously for the CES 2017


Minivan futuristic design, a vehicle more typical of the years 90.

Today starts officially the Consumer Electronics Show 2017, and the markings begin to reveal all of the novelties that will be presented at the event in Las Vegas. In the case of the group FCA few days ago we knew its new infotainment system developed jointly with Google and is based on Android, and today, Chrysler has unveiled a curious concept that has been prepared specifically for this appointment, the Chrysler Portal Concept.

This prototype has a mechanical power that allows you to get to a few 400 kilometers of autonomy, thanks to their packages batteries of 100 kWh, although it also has a quick charge system that in less than 20 minutes is able to recharge enough to be able to travel about 240 kms.

Although the most important of this concept is not its propulsion system, or the curious and futuristic body type MPV chosen, in place of the more usual sedan or crossover, but which introduces a system of driving autonomous that operates with 3 levels of autonomy, able to operate alone on the open road.


The dashboard is spectacular.

The Portal Concept is slightly less than the Chrysler Pacifica current account with a wheelbase of 3 metres. The exterior is dominated by lines at an angle, that draw the doors, pillars and even the design formed by the optical groups.

After the sliding doors, which open to each side of the vehicle, we find an interior tremendously modern, in which the clean the dashboard is the real protagonist. While the dashboard is formed by three large screens positioned in the upper area of a central place, in the center console we find a large-screen multifunction touch with a solitary command.

But what is most curious is the presence of a steering wheel without ring, that
we understand the steering column and that sustains a
control could well be the automatic gear lever, but that is
a joystick through which it operates
really the vehicle.
