2010 Geneva Motor Show: Chrysler 300C Eco Style

Article by Christian A., on February 28, 2010

Chrysler had on display a 300C Eco Style at the Geneva Motor Show. Instead of an all-electric 300C, Chrysler had taken a new approach on the environmental awareness movement and made good use of eco-friendly materials. On the 300C Eco Style, Chrysler used cork, bamboo, recycled jute carpeting and suede seat inserts.

Aside from its refined interior, the car also now boasts a set of refurbished wheels. At the Geneva Motor Show, the 300C Eco Style had a Vanilla exterior color with black roof and large 20-inch wheels.

For its interior, the car has been provided with cactus-accented seat-inserts and door trim, bamboo appliques placed on the door trim, center console and steering wheel.

Chrysler said that the recycled materials are used on the interior. We see recycled ultra-suede seat inserts on the front while the rear-passenger seats are remarkable because they're soft but durable. Organic themes on the center console and door trim of the interior compartment come in the form of hydrographic patterns.

For the exterior, water-based paints were used. Powering the Eco Style 300C is a 5.7 liter HEMI. Multi-displacement System (MDS) is featured on this engine.

MDS alternates between a fuel-efficient four-cylinder mode when the car is cruising and the V8 mode when power is needed. Chrysler claims that with the MDS, vehicle performance is not sacrificed for the sake of optimizing fuel economy.

The new Chrysler 300 combines first-rate features and American styling in its interior to deliver animated style, reliable materials, comfortable features, and meticulously installed finish and precise fit. The 300 substantially upgraded the interior with the use of soft touch materials, quality interior trims, seats with optional heated and ventilated Nappa leather, and doors, instrument panel, steering wheel, and centre console with real wood appliqués.

Expressing a luxurious surrounding, the 2011 Chrysler 300 sedan boasts cast-skin instrument and door panels with 3D two-tone gloss graining for the finest look and agility. Satin accents contrast with gleaming chrome, giving this flagship Chrysler sedan a milled aluminium appearance. A new instrument cluster adds details with two large-faced gauges illuminated in sapphire blue and chrome ring accents. The new sapphire blue LED ambient lighting provides a high quality, modern interior.

Offering class-leading comfort, the brand-new seats, designed using quality architecture, include an S-shaped spring suspension, new front seat-backs with a four-way lumbar system that can move up and down and fore and aft, and different foam densities in the bolsters, seat backs, and lower seats for augmented comfort.

Engineered for avid drivers who live for substance and uniqueness

Completely redesigned, the new 2011 Chrysler 300 is the latest US standard full-size vehicle. While standard full-sized vehicles have held a consistent 4% market share for the last three years, Chrysler’s 300 series will recharge the segment by providing elegance, grand-tour drives, class-leading comfort, and the world's most precise and highest quality E-segment luxury sedans that is still affordable.

On the inside, cactus-accented seat-inserts and door trim accents provide contrast, while bamboo appliqués placed on the door trim, center console and steering wheel deliver added texture and detail.

Recycled materials are used within the interior of the vehicle. Recycled ultra-suede seat inserts are used for the front and rear-passenger seats and are soft to the touch and durable. Hydrographic patterns are used to place organic themes on the center console and door trim of the interior compartment. Water-based paints are used on the exterior of the vehicle.

Under the hood is the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine with Multi-displacement System (MDS). MDS seamlessly alternates between smooth high-fuel-economy four-cylinder mode when less power is needed and V-8 mode when more power is needed. MDS optimizes fuel economy without sacrificing vehicle performance.
