Chrysler showed an interesting concept without much fanfare at Detroit's NAIAS this week. The 700C is being evaluated by Chrysler as the design direction for the next generation minivan. It's a bold effort to give some style to the boxy people mover market and public opinion will now decide if the angled B-pillar and huge wheels will see production.

Our understanding is that the 700C was a last minute addition to the show, and was produced entirely without supporting literature or showcards so that people could make their own mind up on the design and its benefits.
