It joins the only other concept car from Chrysler, the Dodge Caliber, which is due to launch in July 2006.

The Caliber comes equipped with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that will give it between six and eight per cent better fuel economy compared to a normal four-speed automatic transmission.
