Chrysler Halcyon Concept debuts

DETROIT: Chrysler unveiled on Tuesday the Halcyon Concept, marking a significant step towards the brand's electrified and sustainable future.

Chrysler CEO Chris Feuell described the concept as a beacon of serene and innovative mobility, aligning with the brand's "Harmony in Motion" philosophy.

The Halcyon Concept, which follows previous introductions like the Chrysler Portal, Airflow Concepts, and the Synthesis Cockpit Demonstrator, signifies Chrysler's journey towards electrification, culminating in a fully electric vehicle lineup by 2028.

The Halcyon is built on Stellantis's STLA Large platform, featuring a sleek, aerodynamic design that embodies the future aesthetic of Chrysler.


It boasts a minimalistic yet functional exterior, with innovative features like a front air blade for enhanced performance and range, alongside adaptive LED headlights and a new Chrysler wing logo.

The concept's colour, Elemental Silver, hints at recycled metals, promoting sustainability.

Inside, the Halcyon offers a 360-degree immersive experience, using 95% sustainable materials and integrating advanced technologies for autonomy, connectivity, and a personalised driving experience.

It features a transparent cross-car display, augmented-reality HUD, and AI functionalities that provide over-the-air updates and diagnostics.


Chrysler has made the interior look futuristic yet intimate, with features like a fold-away steering wheel and retractable pedals to enhance the autonomous driving experience.

Innovations extend to the concept's performance and user experience, offering dynamic wireless power transfer for unlimited range, and envisioning the use of lithium-sulphur EV batteries for a lower carbon footprint.

The Lyten 800V lithium-sulphur batteries do not use nickel, cobalt or manganese, resulting in an estimated 60% lower carbon footprint than today’s best-in-class batteries.


This aligns with Stellantis's Dare Forward 2030 plan, aiming for a 50% reduction in global carbon footprint by 2030 and net carbon zero by 2038.
