From the Pacifica to the Portal – Chrysler Continues to Set the Bar
From the Pacifica to the the Portal, Chrysler has set the bar for innovation and creativity in the auto industry. Really though, did you ever imagine a minivan could have a “cool” reputation? If you think the Chrysler Pacifica is cool, learn about Chrysler’s Portal concept below.
The Chrysler Portal is a concept (for now) that has been seen at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and the Detroit International Auto Show. Chrysler’s goal behind the Portal is to create a spacious and tech friendly vehicle geared towards millennials. Based in the concept, it seems like they did an awesome job.
With features like a fully electric powertrain that can travel up to 250 miles per change, face and voice recognition, and autonomous driving technology what isn’t there to love? A wider cabin, futuristic cockpit feel, dual articulated doors (better known as swing doors), and the capability for drivers and passengers to listen to their own music without disrupting other are just some more of the Portal’s advanced features.
You are probably thinking “ugh, why is this just a concept!”, but don’t worry, it probably won’t just be a concept forever. FCA’s CEO, Sergio Marchionne confirmed that Chrysler is seriously considering the production of a Portal type vehicle within the next few years. Cool!
