Chrysler Portal Is The Adaptable, Electric Minivan That’s Seen As “True Object Of Desire” By Millennials
The 250-mile Chrysler Portal Concept electric minivan is being touted as the futuristic vision of a “Soccer Mom” vehicle that’s ideally suited for millennials.
Ashley Edgar, one of the engineers responsible for the Portal Concept, stated:
“We wanted to design a vehicle discerning millennials would recognize as a true object of desire.”
Portal likely appeals to non-millennials too, but Chrysler is clearly suggesting that it has a targeted demographic for Portal and that demographic is now “the largest U.S. living generation…with a population of 75.4 million.”
Specific features targeted at millennials include seats that can be easily added or removed based on family size, compatibility with mobile devices, charging docks galore and so on.
As of right now, Portal remains a concept, but we do believe that Chrysler will green light a modified production version within a few years. Fingers crossed…
