USA: Chrysler Delivers Plug-in Minivan Test Fleet

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard any electric-car news from Chrysler; its ENVI electric car dchiivision dissolved when bankruptcy struck the company in 2009. It looks like an alternative-fuel program is back in the form of a fleet of plug-in hybrid Town & Country minivans.

Eight hybrid vans were delivered to Duke Energy in Charlotte, N.C., as part of a two-year test program. Employees of the electric power holding company will drive the vans during a two-year study to gauge how the technology performs in a minivan during real-world driving conditions. The automaker is working with the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a total of 25 test units. The city of Auburn Hills, Mich., is also testing four of the vehicles during the next two years.
