CHRYSLER HIGHLIGHTS LEADERSHIP POSITION IN ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE PRODUCTION, SEPT. 18

 CHRYSLER HIGHLIGHTS LEADERSHIP POSITION
 IN ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE PRODUCTION, SEPT. 18
 Alternative fuel vehicles are not something of the distant future at Chrysler Corp. The need for them is now, so the company is currently producing two AFVs: a dedicated compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered full-size Dodge van and flexible fuel (methanol or unleaded gas) compact Dodge Spirit and Plymouth Acclaim sedans. Both feature full factory warranties and the latter (FFVs) are offered at no price premium. By the end of this calendar year, Chrysler will become the first major automaker to produce an electric-powered vehicle when its electric minivan, the Dodge Caravan Electric, starts to roll off the assembly line. At the San Francisco Eco Expo, Chrysler has joined the San Francisco Chronicle as a presenting sponsor. The company will show off its current alternative fuel vehicles and also some of its future direction in the Neon and EPIC concept vehicles. Chrysler also is co-sponsoring the Young Eco Inventor's Contest in conjunction with Eco Expo.
