Chrysler Unveils Dodge Circui

by Tim Joseph
What an exciting weekend. The biggest event of the year is upon us at the North American International Auto Show. Chrysler unveiled their all new electric vehicle, the Dodge Circuit. This is the reason we will go to the auto show this year. The Dodge Circuit is similar to Chrysler’s previous offering back in September but, as promised, looks more Dodge than Lotus.
The Dodge Circuit is a big step in electric vehicles. It is able to go from 0 to 60 in less than 5 seconds and has a top speed of 120 miles per hour. It features a 268-horsepower electric motor, an advanced lithium-ion battery system and a controller that manages energy flow. Owner’s of the Circuit will be able to travel 150-200 miles between charges and plugs in to a standard 110-Volt outlet.
While the 2 seat sports car may not be ideal for everyone, it certainly is a large step in the right direction. In September we saw three electric models. Chrysler could lead the electric vehicle charge and change the face of Detroit with this technology. For you environmentally conscious, the Dodge Circuit does not use any gasoline and leaves virtually no impact on the environment.
