Chrysler unveils a trio of concept vehicles that afford exceptional fuel economy, with varying emphasis on performance and styling.

Trevor Creed, senior vice president-design, says all three vehicles “take advantage of the best of new technologies and couple them with the room, comfort, speed and style customers will not sacrifice.”

The Chrysler ecoVoyager features a single electric motor alternately powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and hydrogen fuel cell.

The ZEO, short for Zero Emissions Operation, is a 4-passenger sport wagon for the gearhead with a conscience. The electric-only vehicle is powered by a Li-ion battery pack with a 250-mile range.

Rounding out Chrysler's concepts is the Jeep Renegade, designed to attract a demographic the auto maker calls “stylish green” — Jeep enthusiasts who are “in harmony with nature.”
