The future of Chrysler is electric, and the concept of airflow graphite unveiled Wednesday at the 2022 New York International Auto Show is a foretaste of what that future will look like.
The new concept is an airflow concept update that was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2022, and like the original, the new features design themes and technology that we’ll see in future Chrysler.
Chrysler is silent about its future plans but has confirmed that it will launch its first electric car in 2025 and will only offer EVs by 2028. The EVs will be based on the modular platform of parent company Stalantis, which was unveiled last July.
Updates to the original airflow converting to airflow graphite are mere cosmetics. There is a new black exterior that combines contrasting copper-colored accents both inside and out. The main color used inside is a light gray.

The Airflow is a smooth crossover with a claimed range of up to 400 miles, and a fast charging capability and Stalantis’ recently announced artificial intelligence-enabled software platform that carries the vehicle’s operating system and electrical architecture (STLA brain), infotainment system (STLA). ), And self-driving system (STLA autodrive).
The self-driving system is claimed to be at Level 3 on the SAE scale of self-driving ability, which means it will enable the driver to briefly look away from the road but must be ready to regain control at any time. Time Chrysler says its future self-driving features will be upgradeable with over-the-air updates.
Power comes from an electric motor in each axle, each rated at 201 hp. Chrysler says the concept is designed to fit more powerful electric motors, for example if a high-performance version is created. Hopefully this is something we will also see in Chrysler’s production EV.
