Meet The All-Electric Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept!

Newest Version Of Airflow Concept, Shows A New Chrysler "Wing" Badge...

The Chrysler brand unveiled a “Graphite” version of its all-electric Chrysler Airflow Concept at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). The Airflow Concept made its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this year, to much positive attention. This latest concept offers a reimagined look at a vehicle destined for production for the 2025 model year.

According to Chrysler, the early development process included several potential design expressions, and that included the Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept. Highlighted with a Galaxy Black exterior color and Cyprus Copper accents both inside and out, the Airflow Graphite Concept has a more urban look than the Arctic White version represented at the CES event.

The Airflow Graphite Concept features a streamlined, dynamic design proportion that achieves an elegant, athletic profile while increasing EV range. Based on the STLA Large architecture, the Airflow Concept features all-wheel-drive (AWD) capability and is powered by two 150 kW (201 horsepower) electric drive motors (EDMs), one in the front and one in the rear (for a combined output of 402 horsepower). The STLA Large architecture was designed to accommodate larger capacity EDMs, so it wouldn’t be far off to see a possible high-performance version of the Airflow Concept in the future. This current setup is aimed at delivering a maximum range achieving up to 400 miles of range on a single charge.

Upfront, the Airflow Graphite Concept announces its electric aesthetic with the new Chrysler “wing” logo tied into a cross-car grille light blade illuminated with Crystal LED lighting. A Crystal LED taillight runs the full width of the vehicle, accentuating the wide stance. Both Airflow Concepts have shown welcome, departure, and animated lighting, including a unique Aqua color that signifies the vehicle is charging. The diffuser shape of the lower rear fascia highlights the aerodynamic, smooth underbody, a key to achieving optimum driving range.

The Galaxy Black exterior unites with Cyprus Copper accents both inside and out to imprint the latest Airflow iteration with its own refined, sophisticated design. Cyprus Copper accents highlight the top of the panoramic glass roof as well as select surfaces of the 22-inch wheels.

Inside, the Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept is modern and spacious, integrating the lightness of Ice Grey and the warmth of Cyprus Copper accents to achieve a rich interior feel. Chrysler says the cabin of the Airflow evokes “the appeal of a first-class lounge that delivers a comfortable space between home and work”. 

The Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept represents the future direction of the Chrysler brand, highlighting the dynamic design, advanced technologies, and seamless connectivity that characterize the brand’s all-electric transformation. The concept is designed as a space to bring people together, both physically and virtually.
Enabled by STLA Brain and STLA SmartCockpit, the user experience in the Airflow Concept is agile, intuitive, and always fresh. The interior showcases ideas for giving every passenger a personalized experience that seamlessly connects them with their digital lives.

The Airflow Concept unifies these advanced technologies, communicating through advanced visualization and thoughtful interaction. The Airflow Concept user experience employs multi-layered, high-contrast graphics and thoughtful details to provide a clean, sophisticated appearance that is safe, easy to use, and easy to understand.
Using a menu-based format, screens throughout the Airflow interior can be personalized, simplified, and organized based on individuals and interests. Information on the screens can be shared with all passengers by swiping.
Each screen is a personalized space to access the digital world via connected entertainment, apps, and downloads. And each seat also features a built-in camera, enabling occupants to participate in a group video conference call from the comfort of the Airflow cabin.

Over-the-air (OTA) updates keep Airflow Concept services current and let passengers quickly and easily add new and innovative features. That functionally keeps the vehicle fresh, exciting, and capable and enhances the overall ownership experience.
The backbone of the Airflow Concept user experience is the new electrical/electronic (E/E) and software architecture, STLA Brain. This architecture is highly flexible, breaking today’s bond between hardware and software generations. It enables software developers to create and update features and services quickly, taking advantage of capabilities built into the cockpit without waiting for a new hardware launch.
The STLA SmartCockpit demonstrated in the Airflow Concept and built on top of STLA Brain architecture, seamlessly integrates with the digital lives of vehicle occupants to deliver AI-based applications such as navigation, voice assistance, an e-commerce marketplace, and payment services.

“The Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept, the latest version of our all-electric concept, represents the many possibilities on our brand’s road to an all-electric future,” said Christine Feuell, Chrysler CEO. “This new persona of the Airflow highlights the flexibility of the Chrysler brand’s future design direction and our ability to create personalities reflective of our diverse customers. As our brand evolves to offer a full battery-electric vehicle portfolio, we are completely rethinking and reinventing the customer experience. Project Ingenuity is an initiative in which we collaborate with customers on our future innovations and services, offering uniquely personalized and delightful customer experiences throughout the purchase, service, and ownership journey.”

We expect to see a few more versions of the Airflow Concept over the next year and a half, showcasing the potential of the new Chrysler 5-passenger electric crossover.

So it looks like the sheetmetal and lighting are set. Interior is maybe pretty close.

Chrysler is searching for a defining character. They had it with the 300, Pacifica SUV, Sebring drop top and my favorite the Crossfire about 12 or so years ago. You could tell three blocks away, that’s a Chrysler. The ill fated canceled 200, had a stylish front, a near miss rear end, but an uglier than dirt side profile that just lost the audience. Too small, too narrow, with a far too close relationship inside and dimensionally to the Dart for comfort. That was the fatal blow in my estimate. What a lost opportunity. Today Chrysler searches. The Airflow, a maybe. Sorry!
Will the Airflow revive the brand? Not without a next generation 300 sedan, or a stylish SUV or two, or a drop top halo model to stand out like the still strikingly beautiful Crossfire. Oh yea, and my beef big time, an all electric line up spells doom. Please get off that all electric train to nowhere. Call me “old school” but if I’m wrong, heck, take me to the woodshed. That too old school for you guys?

It’s a well (not impressive) designed « normal family » car yet, also in the interiors, but in 2025, it may be quite « old »… wait and see.
