    Build it with the new cheap half the weight of steel carbon panels. They cost the same as steel and weigh half as much. They are 5 time stronger then steel. Half the weight means DOUBLE the Milage. Instead of trying to get even with everyone why don’t you guys try promoting something USEFUL Like AUTOS made from the carbon panels. YOU could double the gas milage of the American fleet in 5 years.

    I’m curious to see the prices on these cars. I am holding out on our next car purchase until we can buy an EV. My husband won’t greenlight buying a Volt, and I am not ready to invest $100,000 plus for the Tesla!

    too bad Chrysler won’t be around to build it…

    yep, concept-cars are no sulution at all. Agree with Andrew: Barack Obama and his Green Dream Team should force Chrysler and other car-indstry to produce zero-emission cars. Just like the Cinese with BYD, Japanese with Toyota, Honda and others.

    The US government should force Chrysler to put this car out next year, as a bit of ‘payback’ for the huge loan they just received.

    I’d buy one, and I can’t stand American made cars.
