Under the skin of the Chrysler Airflow Concept
The Airflow concept equips the new Stellantis battery-specific architecture STLA. The Airflow is probably based on the STLA Medium platform for midsize cars and crossovers. The details are not abundant, but Chrysler talks about autonomies between 563 and 643 kilometers. There is no lack of all-wheel drive thanks to two electric motors.
Each of them has 210 hp of power (150 kW) and the entire mechanical set is integrated into a single package. It presents an architecture of 800 volts. Total power should be around 400 hp. In any case, the manufacturer ensures that the platform is capable of accepting larger and more powerful mechanics. Is it the advance of an electric SRT?
