Dodge [1] - Epic

The Dodge EPIC was a concept electric car created by Chrysler Corporation under its brand Dodge. The EPIC was first shown at the 1992 North American International Auto Show. EPIC stands for Electric Power Inter-urban Commuter. It was the first hybrid minivan.

Engine and Design

The EPIC uses an I4 engine which is powered by an emission-free powertrain. The powertrain features nickel iron batteries that can give up to 120 miles (193 km) on only one charge. The EPIC uses a four-gear automatic transmission. The design was at the time more futuristic. Unlike any other minivan, the EPIC had the modern oval-shaped body, this style was inspiration for the design of the third generation of the Chrysler Minivans. This vehicle was also one of the first signs of the hybrid vehicles.

This vehicle has been seen in the 1994 NBC TV series Viper.
