, the automaker at the forefront of the minivan movement back in the 1980s, is seriously rethinking its family-hauler business. As we reported earlier
, Chrysler will be scrapping one of its two minivan twins by 2013, making room for a smaller micro-van to launch within the next few years - a vehicle that will compete with the likes of the Ford C-Max
. Now, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has reportedly confirmed that a hybrid version of the company's next-generation minivan is on its way, scheduled to debut by 2013.
The powertrain slated for use in the hybrid minivan will use the same powertrain technology that we'll be seeing in the gasoline-electric version of the Chrysler 300
sedan, also set to launch in 2013
. The new van will be built at the automaker's Windsor Assembly Plant in Canada - the factory where both the Chrysler Town & Country
and Dodge Grand Caravan
are built today.
