Chryslus Motors was a pre-War automobile manufacturer.

BackgroundEdit

Before the war, Chryslus was one of the few companies that harnessed fledgling fusion power to create commercially viable personal transportation utilizing fusion engines,[1] going as far as to sponsor an exhibit at the Museum of Technology to display the history of transportation, complete with a two-story replica of a modern fusion engine.[2] Relying on rechargeable batteries or on-board fission reactors, their primary product lines were the Corvega and Highwayman.

The first cars entered the market in 2070.[Non-game 1] 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.[Non-game 2][3] In terms of price, a Corvega sold for $199,999.99 per unit in 2077.[4] Even post-War, their reputation as being a reliable and well-built automobile with minimal upkeep remains.[5][6][7] Such pre-War vehicles are commonly found throughout the wastelands.

Corvega brandEdit

Corvega was the flagship brand of Chryslus Motors and one of the dominant forces on the automotive market after the resource crisis rendered combustion engines unmarketable. The price of an old model Corvega in 2077 was $199,999.99.[4] However, despite their popularity, coupes manufactured in 2077 had a tendency to leak coolant.[7] Such pre-War vehicles are commonly found throughout the wastelands.

  • A wrecked Highwayman appears in the Mojave Wasteland near Novac with a few energy cells in the trunk.
  • Randall Clark mentions in his terminal entries that when the Great War began, his truck and a Chryslus in the other lane became inoperable.[12][13]
  • Chryslus factories appear as locations in Fallout Shelter.
  • Sometimes Chryslus is spelled "Chryslis."
  • In promotional material, Chryslus is described as investing heavily in 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.[Non-game 3] At five, they received a commemorative replica of the Chryslus Pick-R-Up.[Non-game 4]
  • A working Highwayman can be used by the Chosen One in Fallout 2.

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.
