Chryslus Motors was a pre-War automobile manufacturer.

Background[edit | edit source]

Before the war, Chryslus was a company that harnessed fusion power to create commercially viable personal transportation[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][Non-game 3] In terms of price, a Corvega sold for $199,999.99 per unit in 2077.[3] Even post-War, their reputation as being a reliable and well-built automobile with minimal upkeep remains.[4][5][6] Such pre-War vehicles are commonly found throughout the wastelands.

Corvega brand[edit | edit source]

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.[3] However, despite their popularity, coupes manufactured in 2077 had a tendency to leak coolant.[6] Such pre-War vehicles are commonly found throughout the wastelands.

Slogans[edit | edit source]

  • "...for those who want more."
  • "Driving paradise."
  • "Nothing can stop a Highwayman."[4][5]
  • "Life is a race. Win!"[10]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • An advertisement for a Chryslus Corvega appears in the Fallout intro. The car's advertised price is "only $199,999.99."
  • 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.[11][12]
  • Chryslus factories appear as locations in Fallout Shelter.
  • Throughout Fallout 2, Chryslus is misspelled as "Chrysalis." This could be attributed to a misreading by both Smitty and Slim Pickett, or simply a mistake on the part of the developers.
  • 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 4] At five, they received a commemorative replica of the Chryslus Pick-R-Up.[Non-game 5]
  • A working Highwayman can be used by the Chosen One in Fallout 2.
  • In The Funnies, a Chryslus Rocket 69 is mentioned.[13]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
