President Obama has announced that Chrysler will merge with Fiat or else. In an effort to avoid falling afoul of the new CEO of everything, Chrysler designers have quickly put together a plan to market new, energy efficient cars here in the USA. Through a friend of a friend, I got some pics of what they have planned.
First up a trio of sporty “smart cars” designed to appeal to first time buyers, like college kids and the elderly:
And for the retro crowd…
Moving up the line we have some eco-friendly entries guaranteed to have the carbon footprint of a Chinese foot binder:
Of course Chrysler hasn’t forgotten the family market:
And for the family that demands the ultimate in luxury…
A new sedan that says “I’m independent!”:
And finally, for the CEO who knows the right word, like the right car, doesn’t happen off-the-cuff:
Looking at these cars it’s hard to argue with the wisdom of President Obama’s plan. Here’s hoping he can convince the new UAW owned GM to produce cars as smart, efficient and sexy as these.
[Note: All of these are real Fiat automobiles, the kind of cars Obama wants to see more of in the US.]
