The Chrysler Airflow Concept is an all-electric crossover that will be pinned on Stellantis’ EV architecture. It looks quite good, honestly, and not dated like the current offerings from the brand. The flowy design has slight resonance with the Pacifica, but is quite different from the 300. The slim grille wears the Chrysler wing badge and is complemented by sleek LED headlights.
