Our invitation to the Chrysler press event debuting their selection of electric vehicles seems to have been lost in the mail, but we decided to head up to the Auburn Hills headquarters after seeing the
Proton Lotus Europa Dodge EV debut on CNBC this morning to see what the hoopla was all about. That's where we caught this second Chrysler EV concept, nicknamed by CNBC's Phil LeBeau "Peapod," being trucked away for safe cover. We don't know whether that's the actual name, but Chrysler CEO Bob "The Builder" Nardelli called it an electric vehicle for "gated communities." Hmm, and what would the electric vehicle for non-gated communities be, because we've yet to see one that seems to fit that particular tagline. We were only able to get a couple of shots off, but the EV is definitely concept only for now and looks to have no interior. Chrysler is promising something by this afternoon, but while they figure out this whole "PR" thing, feel free to enjoy this smiley little car. Look how happy it is!
