Unveiled at CES 2017 and displayed at the 2017 Detroit Motor Show, Portal is an all-electric concept car. According to the FCA boss Sergio Marchionne, will act as the fifth generation car brand.

Both Marchionne also FCA head of passenger cars for North America, Tim Kuniskis, would say whether the portal will hit the market like, but it seems like a likely scenario. What’s more likely, is that the Chrysler Pacifica would complement the electric minivan drawing on the Portal for the design and powertrain.

Speaking with The Detroit News in an ongoing Detroit Auto Show, Kuniskis said, “We haven’t been shy to say that we see the Portal as what we view as the future of family transportation. People ask me, is it a minivan? Is it a crossover? Is it a UV (utility vehicle)? We just say it’s the fifth generation of cars.”

In addition to the powertrain, Chrysler Portal supports Level Three autonomous driving courtesy of navigation sensors and radar. Importantly, the hardware found on Portal can be updated to support a greater degree of autonomy.
