Fiat-Chrysler Portal Concept Revealed Ahead Of CES 2017 Debut — The People Carrier Of The Future?

Written By:

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the world's seventh largest automaker has revealed the electric Chrysler Portal concept ahead of its debut at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The Chrysler Portal is described by the company as a vehicle "created by millennials for millennials" and is a futuristic take on the people carrier of today, the minivan.

The Portal is a radical version of the traditional MPV-style of cars with its sleek LED headlights and tail lights along with a large glass area.

However, the most distinctive design element of the Portal are the double semi-glass doors with LED accents which open up in opposite directions and add a dash of insanity to an already crazy people carrier.

Chrysler calls the interior of the Portal, the 'third space' in a person's life with the other two being home and work.

The interiors are minimal and feature a long, slender LCD display that runs across most of the top of the dashboard along with a large touchscreen display that sits in the centre of the dash. FCA claims that all the displays are fully configurable and can be moved around at will.

Also present are six-aircraft style seats that are mounted on rails that allow them to move around and be removed.

The Portal is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack rated at 100 kWh. The battery will allow the Portal a range of 402 kilometres (250 miles) on a single charge.

The battery can recoup up to 241 kilometers with a 20-minute charge using a fast charger.

The Portal also comeswith Level 3 autonomous driving capability and will get the hardware for Level 4 (no human interaction needed) in due time. FCA has not stated if or when the Portal will go into production.
