A direct descendant of the Lotus Europa, the Dodge EV electric plug-in hybrid was first revealed to the public a few months ago as a member of Chrysler’s futuristic fuel-efficient trio. Conveniently falling right on the tail end of the Chevy Volt’s publicity storm, Chrysler’s big unveiling was somewhat muted by the fact they refused to divulge which of the three vehicles was actually intended for production. Immediately ruling out the Chrysler EV minivan has an obvious red herring, the competition was ultimately divided between the 2011 Jeep EV and the 2011 Dodge EV – and it looks as though the Dodge EV might have won.

Caught by the semper vigilis eyes of the Brenda Priddy camp, the Dodge EV pictured above was spied cruising the streets at sunset with its headlamps off. Since we’re fairly certain it wasn’t Nardelli out looking for a little gritty Detroit action, it’s safe to assume these photos indicate the Chevy Volt is in for some serious domestic competition come 2011.

    “Yea, let’s spend money on an electric sports car… We’ve got F-U money nowadays and the public’s clammoring for this sorta thing. AND, with gas at $1.60 around here in Michigan, these’ll FLY off the lots! Gold! Let’s put it on the fast track.” says the Chrysler exec.

    For me, this would be no problem. I don’t drive that much, maybe 3,000 miles per year, 9 miles to work and back. But, living in California, everything is so spread out that unless this vehicle gets at least 90 miles charge, it will be a problem for many. I would much rather have Fiat’s clean diesel engine technology. I don’t know about all electric. Even with the few miles I drive, I would always be afraid that it would quit on me someplace where I don’t want to be quit on. Put it to you this way, maybe up the line when there are charging stations reasonably spaced and the true cost per mile rather than estimates.
