Chryslus Motors[1] was a pre-War automobile manufacturer.

BackgroundEdit

Before the War, Chryslus was one of the few companies that harnessed the fledgling fusion power to create commercially viable personal transportation vehicles. Relying on rechargeable batteries or on-board fission reactors, their primary product lines were the Corvega and Highwayman, offering similar performance. The first cars entered the market in 2070. Reassuringly big and American, they sold out within days despite the hefty price tag. Production was limited due to the ongoing conversion of civilian factories for military purposes.[2] In terms of price, a Corvega sold for $199,999.99 per unit in 2077.[3]

Chryslus's core technology, the V8 diesel-fusion engine, was used widely in its vehicles, from Corvegas to the heavy duty Pick-R-Up and Nuka-Cola delivery trucks.

Corporate operationsEdit

The corporate headquarters of the company, the Chryslus building, was located in Washington, D.C. along with a primary Corvega factory in the vicinity of the federal district. Chryslus invested heavily into building a corporate culture that promoted loyalty, including celebrations of employment milestones:

  • At two years, employees received a commemorative hard enamel pin, postcard and a replica Fusion Flea Supreme.[4]
  • At five, they received a commemorative replica of the Chryslus Pick-R-Up.[5]

AppearancesEdit

  • An advertisement for a Chryslus Corvega appears in the intro movie of Fallout. The car advertised is priced at "only" $200,000, meaning that the economy of the pre-War world was vastly inflated.
  • The Chryslus building and Corvega factory both appear in Fallout 3.
  • There are two types of derelict Corvega automobiles in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas: the Atomic V8 (two seats) and the unnamed four-seat variant.
  • A wrecked Highwayman appears in Fallout: New Vegas near Novac with a few energy cells in the trunk.
  • A Chryslus car is named in the Randall Clark terminal entries.
  • Chryslus vehicles appear in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The company name is derived from Chrysler and General Motors, both American automobile manufacturers headquartered in Michigan.
  • The Cherry Bomb appears in Forza Motorsport 6, renamed as the "Chryslus Rocket 69." It is available for all Fallout 4 players. The new name of the car is a reference to a song of the same name "Rocket 69" which was released in 1954 and sung by Connie Allen. Rocket 69 is featured in Fallout 4 and is played on Diamond City Radio.
