The Chrysler ecoVoyager concept was a battery and hydrogen
fuel cell powered passenger vehicle displayed at the 2008
Detroit Motor Show.

motor, with power primarily supplied by a lithium-ion
battery pack. The electric motor develops 200 kilowatts
(268 horsepower), giving the ecoVoyager a 0-60 mph acceleration
time of 8.8 seconds. A regenerative braking system helps top up the battery during deceleration.

controls and heat/massage switches, while individual rear-seat
armrests fold into the cabin back panel. With the ability
to store six 20-ounce bottles, the floor console dividing
the rear seats accommodates hot or cold beverages.
