If there’s a target market automakers have their eye on more than ever, it’s gadget-obsessed millennials. No wonder Chrysler introduced the Portal Concept, going so far as to enlist a team of millennials to create a vehicle for their own generation. The Portal Concept debuted at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, CES in Las Vegas to give attendees a hint of what’s in store—not just a car, but an entire mobile, digitally-connected environment.

The Portal Concept is essentially a shortened minivan, a vehicle type Chrysler is adept at executing, and is proposed to be all-electric and have a range of 250 miles. Chrysler says it has the capabilities of SAE Level Three autonomous driving, and will therefore self-drive in limited conditions on the highway. That being said, potential upgrades could be offered to expand to additional road types as the technology becomes more refined.

The focal point of the exterior and source of the car name comes from elevator sliding doors. The interior has a chic dashboard with a signature Knight Rider-esque steering wheel and twin display screens that can be customized, with the lower being touch activated. Ultimately it serves as a central docking station for the 10 power points for digital devices throughout the interior. Appealing to the millennial, there’s even an integrated selfie camera that not only take photos but use facial recognition to load customized settings.
