Earlier this week, we spoke of the recycling undertaken by several automakers, specifically of nameplates from their past. And in most cases, the revived names are being affixed to all-electric models.
Ford, for example, is doing it with the Lightning to identify the electric version of its F-150, and Buick could do the same with the Electra name it recently used for a concept and has just re-trademarked.
Chrysler had a very convenient name in its portfolio, just waiting for the electric era: Airflow. The first Chrysler Airflow was introduced in 1934 and as the name suggests, its mission was to split the air with as little fuss as possible, the goal being to maximize fuel efficiency.
Over the past few years, Chrysler has been presenting an electric concept carrying the name here and there. At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, the company unveiled a version that looks quite close to production-ready. The Chrysler Airflow Concept is squarely a preview of what could be the brand's first all-electric vehicle, due in 2025.
