(NY Auto Show) Chrysler CEO Eyes CNG Vehicles For US
Chrysler CEO not sure one alternative powerplant is the answer. Compressed natural gas looks to be a strong candidate for future US vehicles.
PSFK is attending the NADA/IHS Global Insight Automotive Forum today. Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne just delivered the keynote address spending some time talking about a creative reconstruction the company in undertaking.
Marchionne previously with Fiat also responded to a question regarding what a potential front runner for alternative fuel vehicles might be for the US. He noted that Europe has had a much longer period of experimentation and development of EV’s and hybrid vehicles. Marchionne talked about compressed natural gas (CNG) optimistically as one US solution. He stated the US has a enough natural gas supply to power US transportation needs for the next 100 years.
