The Chrysler 200C is a plug-in hybrid electric concept car built by the U.S. automaker Chrysler.


The vehicle was based on the shortened Chrysler LX platform.

The rear-wheel-drive sedan includes gasoline engine rated 268 bhp (200 kW) and a 74 bhp (55 kW) lithium ion battery rated 400 miles (40 miles in battery only mode), P245/45R20 front and P245/45R20 tires. The car has 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) acceleration of approximately 7 seconds, with top speed of over 120 mph (190 km/h).

The interior incorporates uConnect features controlled via a panoramic multimedia touch screen. It includes a "teen mode" which warns of erratic driving or going out of a specified range, and limits the maximum speed.

The vehicle was unveiled in 2009 North American International Auto Show.[1]


The exterior design was led by Nick Malachowski.

The interior was designed by Chrysler LLC's Advance Interior Design Studio, led by Ryan Patrick Joyce. The vehicle flooring was inspired by a Zen rock garden.
