NAIAS: Chrysler 700C
January 9th, 2012 9:58 PM Share
Chrysler’s so sure their electric minivan has the power to stomp the competition, they had Ndamukong Suh sit in the thing.
No, I’m serious.
That’s Ndamukong Suh.
The minivan is the Chrysler 700C. What’s different about it, besides the Dustbuster-meets-Nissan-Quest looks?
Well, it’s supposed to be electric. To be fair, the 700C is still in that lifecycle stage of concept-car existence where it could be powered by batteries, hydrogen, a revamped Chrysler Turbine, or a GM Iron Duke refitted for 2.7-liter marine duty. Is this the future of Chrysler minivan styling, at least? We’re kind of hoping it isn’t.

- Add Lightness Range Rovers have come a long, long ways from their original concept of a gentleman's Land Cruiser. Pretty useless off road now but the wannabees will love them until the warrantee expires.

- ToolGuy "Toyota recommends that no one ride in the front passenger seat until an inspection or fix can be performed."• This is a good opportunity for the back seat driver in your life. 😉
One of the ugliest shapes I've seen in a long time, with equally ugly details. Worst C-pillar since the Rexton. I don't know what floorpan they were trying to reuse, but I would say that the reusability savings will be more than offset by a lack of sales due to unattractive weirdness.
