What's old is new again: Chrysler to make electric minivans for fleet use

Put on your Cynical Hats for Earth Day, people!

Chrysler Celebrates Earth Day by Revealing All-new Electric Minivan Concepts to U.S. Postal Service


source: Green Car Congress: Chrysler Unveils Four All-Electric Minivan Prototypes to USPS; Applying for Grant for Nationwide Demo and Chrysler




I wonder if this one costs more than the $120,000 US that the TEVan cost when it was produced in the '90's...



Chrysler TEVan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

According to the company:

  • Chrysler exhibits flexibility of its electric vehicle portfolio with a new Chrysler minivan EV concept, targeted for postal delivery use
  • Chrysler intends to submit an application under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Transportation Electrification stimulus program for a federal grant that would enable a nationwide demonstration fleet with the United States Postal Service (USPS)
  • Potential partnership with USPS to include infrastructure support from ConEd, Duke Energy, DTE Energy and Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI)
What I wonder: how many demonstrations do we need?
