Hey, Rick Wagoner, Chrysler may be a few days late to the E-REV party, but CEO Bob Nardelli is a little more polished than you on camera. Said Nardelli himself: "We may have been knocked down, but we haven't been knocked out."

Chrysler today announced a consumer Web site, Chryslergoeselectric.com, designed "to allow consumers to view the latest updates on Electric Vehicles and Range-extended Electric Vehicles." And at first glance, their PR team has a much stronger Web presence than Wagoner's somewhat stilted interview on the GM FastLane blog. The Chrysler site features details, pictures, and an embedded video of the well-handled CNBC reveal of Chrysler's three new electric vehicles from this morning.

It's all part of what Chrysler calls its "ENVI Organization," representing the first four letters of "environmental," which Chrysler says was formed just over one year ago to "focus on electric-drive production vehicles and related advanced technologies." The name's a nice double-entendre and well-timed ego boost for struggling Chrysler LLC, whose dealers have been clamoring for good news and new products.--Colin Mathews

  1. Wow, they worked hard on these models: a dressed up Lotus Europa with Dodge painted on it and two production models in which I assume they stuffed some electrical motor with some batteries and added some cool looking logos... This is PURELY window dressing. There is no doubt that there is no innovation at Chrysler now.
