Chrysler is planning to have their next-generation hybrid minivan to be a gamechanger. The company has invested more than $-billion into their Windsor Assembly Plant to bring this new minivan to life.
Sergio Marchionne, Fiat-Chrysler’s CEO, talked about the minivan in a conference call. “The minivan that’s coming out next year is a huge step forward for us not just in terms of renewal of a relatively old architecture, but also in terms of embracing plug-in hybrid technology.”
This response was to reporters asking Marchionne about the recent delays in some future Chrysler vehicles. He also responded with citing the five-year plan that was released in 2014 is fluid and able to change depending on the needs of the company.
Chrysler’s CEO Al Gardner was the one to claim that the new hybrid Town & Country will be a “game changer.” Back in April, he talked with Detroit News where he talked about how much a fuel-efficient hybrid minivan would change the market and that Chrysler wanted to be the first to that market.
The new Town & Country is slated to go into production in the first quarter of this upcoming year.
