Sergio Marchionne announces Chrysler 300 Hybrid for 2013

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 17, 2011

According to the latest reports, it appears that Chrysler Group is planning to offer a gasoline-electric hybrid version Chrysler 300 sedan.

These words came from CEO Sergio Marchionne who also added that the car is expected to make its debut in 2013. "We will offer a hybrid variant of the 300 equipped with an eight-speed automatic in 2013," said Marchionne.

The new car indicates that hybrid cars are back on Chrysler’s drawing board after the hybrid version of the Dodge Ram pickup was abandoned due to the financial crisis.

Still, Chrysler built back in 2008 two versions of the Chrysler Aspen and Dodge Durango hybrid SUVs but the cars registered poor sales.

If you want to buy a brand new 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan you will have to choose the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine with 292 horsepower (218 kW) and 260 ft.-lb. (353 Nm) of torque.

This version will be priced from $27,995 (including $825 destination charge). The most expensive version of the 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan is the model equipped with an all-wheel drive system, priced from $41,145 (including $825 destination charge). [via autonews - sub. required]
