On February 13, 2024, Auburn Hills, Michigan’s Chrysler brand, owned by Stellantis, unveiled the Chrysler Halcyon Concept, expanding the automobile industry. This concept car, which incorporates cutting-edge technology and environmental design concepts, is Chrysler’s next move towards a completely electric future. The Chrysler Halcyon Concept was created to push the envelope of innovation and provide an early look into the brand’s all-electric future. Since its founding in 1925, Chrysler has made significant advancements in design, workmanship, and technology.

The Chrysler Halcyon Concept combines an appearance that is aerodynamic and sleek with an interior that is sustainable and effortlessly integrated. With a low-to-the-ground profile, the exterior’s dramatic proportions and a front air blade aerodynamic pass-through increase the battery-electric vehicle’s (BEV) range capabilities. This design element connects the vehicle’s performance visually in addition to being functional. Moreover, the red carpet-style side doors and butterfly-hinged canopy are intended to provide simple access while promoting an open-air atmosphere.

Ninety-five percent of the inside materials are sustainable, including the Chrysler wing insignia, which are constructed from recycled and crushed CDs. The concept’s cutting-edge elements, which strive to achieve “Harmony in Motion,” include the STLA Brain, STLA SmartCockpit, and STLA AutoDrive technologies, as they form the core of the sustainable approach. Together, these technologies offer a linked, immersive experience that changes based on the driver’s choices and the surroundings.

The concept’s ability to drive autonomously is heavily emphasized. The STLA AutoDrive technology platform enables level 4 autonomy and provides exclusive experiences like a dimmable glass canopy for augmented reality stargazing. Additionally, the car boasts cutting-edge Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer (DWPT) technology, which enables wireless battery recharging and offers an almost limitless range.

The 800V lithium-sulfur EV batteries that power the Halcyon Concept are expected to have a carbon footprint that is 60% less than that of the top batteries on the market today. Stellantis has pledged to achieve net carbon zero by 2038 and a 50% reduction in its worldwide carbon footprint by 2030, including this effort.
