Chryslus Motors was a pre-War automobile manufacturer.


Chryslus was the most significant company to use fusion power to develop and sell commercial automobiles, primarily under the Corvega brand.[1]

The first cars entered the market in 2070. Reassuringly big and American, they sold out within days despite the hefty price tag.[Non-canon 1] Production was limited due to the ongoing conversion of civilian factories for military purposes.[Non-canon 2][Non-canon 3] The prices remained high, and a Corvega sold for $199,999.99 per unit in 2077.[2] Chryslus remained a powerful company up to the Great War, and bankrolled various initiatives, including a Museum of Technology exhibit on the history of transportation, complete with a two-story replica of a modern fusion engine.[3]

Even post-War, Chryslus products have a reputation for being reliable and well-built, with minimal upkeep remains.[4][5][6]

Virtually all Chryslus products are commonly found throughout the wastelands, many of them rendered inoperable by electromagnetic pulses that accompanied the nuclear detonations.[7][8]

Corvega brand

Main article: Corvega

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.[Non-canon 4] The price of an old model Corvega in 2077 was $199,999.99.[2] However, despite their popularity, coupes manufactured in 2077 had a tendency to leak coolant.[6]


The corporate headquarters of the company, the Chryslus Building, and Corvega factory were located in Washington, D.C. and an assembly plant is located in Boston.

Chryslus factories appear as locations in Fallout Shelter.

Behind the scenes

  • Throughout Fallout 2, Chryslus is spelled "Chrysalis."
  • 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.
  • Concept art shows several products such as the Atomic V2, V6, V8, and VX engines.[Non-canon 5][Non-canon 6]
  • Real world promotional 1:18 scale models of the vehicles were produced by the Wand Company and sold on the Bethesda Gear Store.[Non-canon 7][Non-canon 8]
  • 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.[Non-canon 9] At five, they received a commemorative replica of the Chryslus Pick-R-Up.[Non-canon 10]
