Back in September of 2008 Chrysler seemed to have the muscle to take over the electric car market. They called in all the press and television networks to show off not one but a whole line of electric cars. They rolled out an electric car for every possible customer, By converting their existing line of cars to electric motors and battery systems. They even tried to one up the only existing electric car company with a highway capable car, Tesla Motors, by rolling out a Lotus electric car as well.

Here is what the line up of electric vehicles was suppose to be, plug-in hybrid Jeeps and Town & Country van and Dodge Circuit EV. Now that the company is in bankruptcy, we will have to wait and see which of these electric cars pop out on the other end, if any.

The one bright spot might be that they will continue to be run largely by the government as it goes through the bankruptcy process. President Obama, has also made it clear time and again that he wants carmakers to concentrate on fuel-efficiency and since he will be picking the new board members and providing the working capital, he may just get his way.

In the end, Chrysler will most likely be controlled by Italy’s Fiat, which specializes in fuel-efficient gasoline and diesel engines. This new European blood within Chrysler maybe exactly what they need to really bring a the hyped electric line of cars to the market. Lets hope they can pull it off for all of our sakes.
