Despite being close to its 100th birthday, the Chrysler brand has been somewhat mothballed by parent company Stellantis in recent years. Once offering the gorgeous Windsor of the 1940s, the luxuriously long Imperial and New Yorker, as well as the more recent and more divisive Crossfire, Chrysler now only really deals in the aging 300 sedan and the Pacifica minivan.

It’s not exactly the most scintillating model line-up, but things look like they are about to change thanks to its most recent and decidedly dramatic Halcyon concept car. It appears to point towards a very exciting electric future for one of America’s most coveted bonnet badges.

Based on the Stellantis Group’s STLA large platform, which will form the basis of a number of new EVs in the coming years, the Halcyon is a long but shapely four-seat electric roadster that would take on the likes of Porsche’s Taycan, the Lucid Air and Tesla’s Model S should it ever go into production.

It features Active Aero Technology, including an active rear diffuser, as well as a “front air blade aerodynamic pass-through area, front air curtains and an elongated windshield” to help the vehicle cut through the air with greater efficiency.
