A long time ago, when Chrysler was more of a force in the market, it promoted a line of full-size sedan as having a cab-forward look. Now comes the real thing: The iMiEV Sport electric car moves the two front passengers forward to accommodate high capacity lithium-ion battery packs mounted low under the front and rear floor.

 

Range is estimated at 123 miles for the 2138-pound 2+2. The inverter and charger are under the trunk. A microwave wireless recharging system is used. The transmitter is housed on the garage floor, and a receiver is mounted under the lithium ion batteries. Recharging takes 17 hours at 100 volts input. Using 200 volts cuts the time in half, and an 80-percent charge can be obtained in 35 minutes with a 200-volt quick charger.

 

All-wheel drive is via three motors – one inside each front wheel rated at 26 horsepower each, and one 63-horsepower motor for the rear wheels. The wheels are at the corners of the aluminum space-frame platform. The electric powered all-wheel-drive system also integrates stability and yaw control, as well as anti-lock braking control.
