Chrysler exhibited its greener side at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show. The automaker's ecoVoyager Concept is an aerodynamic pod-like, four-door, four-passenger car that blends electric power with a fuel-cell pack.

The concept combines a 200-kilowatt electric motor and a fuel cell for a cruising range of 300 miles. EcoVoyager rides on a 116-inch wheelbase and is 191.2-inches long, 75.4-inches wide, and 63-inches high. Its doors, including the rear-hinged rear doors, open 90 degrees without a B-pillar. Interior features include cherry wood trim throughout the cabin and two panoramic sunroofs.

EcoVoyager is aimed at environmentally conscious consumers who are interested in "elegance and simplicity," and those who live by the adage "less is more." EcoVoyager, according to Chrysler, embodies "the new, elegant expression of the Chrysler brand." To Chrysler, ecoVoyager demonstrates its ideas about design and environmentally responsible transportation.

Chrysler admitted ecoVoyager is strictly a concept, but did divulge that the show car foreshadows a taste of the automaker's future design and propulsion technology strategies.
