Chrysler, Fiat joint-developing electric car

Dodge Circuit EV fq

In a few weeks time, Chrysler big boss Sergio Marchionne will reveal his 5-year plan for the automaker. According to information leaked out early, at least one electric car will be part of the plan. Apparently the once presumed-dead electric car program is back in progress and being worked on by Chrysler and Fiat together.

Chrysler, through its ENVI in-house electric propulsion division, currently has four electric vehicles: the Dodge Circuit EV (pictured), Jeep Patriot EV, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited EV, and Chrysler Town & Country EV. The ENVI website claims that you’ll be able to own at least one electric model by 2010, and there will be “at least three more models available by 2013.”

Those claims may be outdated, but come November 4 Marchionne will reveal all.
