Chrysler’s All-Electric Airflow May Not Come Soon, But Will Self-Drive

Chrysler’s Airflow, revealed in Las Vegas at the CES 2022, will not be available until 2025, but the wait may be worth it, the car will self-drive.

In Las Vegas at CES 2022, Chrysler made its big EV concept reveal. For the past months almost every large car brand, from Ford to GM, to Mercedes-Benz to BMW has released its EV lineup and new models. The sector once dominated by Tesla is now a sea riddled with the big sharks of the auto industry.

EVs are evolving hand-in-hand with self-driving technology. It is no longer just about making green vehicles, getting the most miles per charge, rapid charging, miles per hour, or horsepower. Companies are integrating the most advanced levels of self-driving technology they can get their hands on. However, the highest levels from 3 to 5 still elude all carmakers.

Chrysler showed off their modern fully electric Airflow concept under the Las Vegas spotlights. Rolling out in 2025, the release date is not impressive. But their intention to dive directly into Level 3 self-driving technology is. The Airflow will use what Chrysler calls an “intuitive AI and connected vehicle technology”. “The STLA SmartCockpit, powered by the STLA Brain, will merge digitally the work and home environment and provide self-driving,” the company promised.

Playing The Self-Driving End Game

Chrysler Airflow Interior Concept

There is not much to dislike about the Airflow car. It has a low ride height and its design is streamlined. Its roof, panoramic windows, screens, and interior are also well-conceived. The company says its car looks and feels more like a lounge than a vehicle. Drivers and passengers would enjoy personalized lights, multimedia, screen time, and screen sharing while cruising, a concept truly for self-driving cars.

Self-driving levels range from 0 to 5. Level 3 still requires drivers assistance, but the leap from Level 2 to Level 3 is so significant that level 3 systems are not even legal on most US and European roads. Eventually, the world will see level 3, level 4, and even the theorized level 5 that requires absolutely no intervention. But for now, tests show that there is still a lot of work to be done to get cars to drive themselves.

Chrysler broke ground in 1934 with a car that was also called the Airflow. Back then the Airflow was the first massive success, a full-size US-made car. Now the company is looking to reclaim its leadership in the future of cars with the same name. The ranges of the new Airflow are standard, up to 400 miles fully charged, and speeds have not yet been disclosed. Chrysler wants to meet the competition down the road, years ahead, playing the end game. The company knows that whoever builds the first truly self-driving car will make history.
