So, what is the Chrysler Portal? It’s an electric minivan! Recently, Chrysler automakers had a hit with the now 2019 Chrysler Pacifica. With the success of the Chrysler Pacifica and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, it seems that the automaker is doubling down on its ability to reinvent and reinvigorate a classic segment.

The Chrysler Portal concept debuted at CES 2017 as an electric minivan. Then, we didn’t hear much after that. News of the Chrysler Portal as a production model comes via Automotive News and claims that production will start in 2020.

Since the Chrysler Portal is still technically a concept, nothing is set in stone. However, according to reports, the electric minivan will carry over a lot of the looks and features of the concept model, including a battery-electric powertrain. What really makes this concept interesting is all the tech that comes with it.

The concept showed off an utterly futuristic look and feel with technology features that promise vehicle-to-infrastructure and vehicle-to-vehicle communications, as well as SAE Level 3 autonomy and even a face recognition software.

Here at Glenbrook Chrysler Dodge Jeep, we’ll keep you updated on the Chrysler Portal as we learn more. In the meantime, if you’re looking for a great deal on a new model in the Fort Wayne, IN area, visit us today and take a test drive.
