At the Consumer Electronics Show CES 2017 the company Chrysler and company Panasonic Automotive Advanced Engineering presented their joint project – Compact MPV concept electric Portal. The developers have noticed that the prototype was developed especially for the generation of young people born in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Concept electric car has received individual and voice recognition of people in the cabin. Having identified the identity of a person, the prototype electronics adapts to their preferences (eg, exhibits the most optimal temperature and selects the music for it). For the recognition of human persons responsible camcorder mounted in the passenger compartment, which can also be used for the Self, while the captured images are immediately sent to the mobile gadgets of passengers. These cameras also monitor the driver’s eyes, helping electronics optimize brightness, thereby reducing eye strain. But when a threat is detected on the road “smart” system will show the driver a warning there where his gaze is directed. Another feature of the Chrysler Portal Concept is the possibility of route planning based on the preferences of people in the cabin. Thus, the electric car can offer the driver stop in a restaurant located on the road. Inside, there are two electric concept display. One is located at the top of the center console and is divided into three segments: the left is the dashboard, center is reserved for the navigation system and the circular review, and on the right you can control entertainment features. Chrysler portal is equipped with an electric motor is powered by a set of lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 100 kWh. Cruising reaches a little over 400 km. The developers also note that using a special charger to replenish reserve of from 0 to 150 km can be as little as 20 minutes. Note that the concept minivan also received autonomous control system and is able to communicate with other vehicles and the road infrastructure objects. Do dare to Chrysler to release the road version of the prototype – is still unknown.
