As a surprise, Chrysler presents the Halcyon, a very low concept with the nose only 10 cm above the ground, front and rear doors opening at 90 degrees and a cabin without a B-pillar.

The objective? To anticipate a hypothetical car of the future, based on the new STLA Large platform and connected to humans at a technological level, thanks to the introduction of artificial intelligence.

Common base

As expected, the platform on which the Chrysler Halcyon is designed is the new STLA Large of the Stellantis Group. The basic configuration is the same one on which the forthcoming electric Dodge Charger Daytona will also be based.

Just like the latter, the Halcyon is also equipped with an 800 volt architecture, according to the company's statement at this early stage. The bodywork then has numerous aerodynamic devices, including a large passage at the front where air is directed through the grille and over the bonnet.

100% autonomous

We mentioned that the Halcyon is equipped with artificial intelligence. According to the company, in fact, this large concept is equipped with Level 4 autonomous driving, thanks to the steering wheel and pedals that can retract completely, allowing the driver to simply be a passenger for the journey.

A stargazing mode that changes the opacity of the top glass and reclines the seat to allow the driver to peer into the heavens is also available.

At the front there is also a large transparent pillar-to-pillar screen, while an all-screen head-up display has been included to provide information to those inside, whether they are driving or not. Finally, powering it all is a lithium-sulphur battery of unknown capacity.

Chrysler talks about the Halcyon stating that this concept makes extensive use of artificial intelligence for a customisable driving experience, in which the car is able to 'prepare' itself for driving, taking into account everything from weather conditions to the daily calendar (which is linked to the car).

The company's vision, in this regard, is to create a legitimate and personal link between the car and the driver. Biometric scanners, in fact, are able to recognise the person as they approach the car and, once inside, the car can play soothing sounds and set everything to the latest preferences.

Chris Feuell, CEO of Chrysler, commented:

"Halcyon presents innovative and sustainable mobility solutions that embrace technology and deliver value to customers while ensuring 'Harmony in Motion'."
