The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is not your average hybrid-electric vehicle, nor your average minivan. This model combines a series of qualities you might not expect to find together: an eco-friendly powertrain and exceptional passenger and storage space. Let’s face it, most of the hybrids on the market are compact cars that won’t necessarily fit a whole family. The Pacifica Hybrid, on the other hand, is rethinking the hybrid segment.
According to Forbes, one of the most distinguishing features of the new Pacifica Hybrid design is that it looks exactly like any other model you’d drive. No special buttons. No clunky exterior.
“Climb behind the wheel of this minivan,” says Forbes reviewer Sam Abuselsamid, “and you’ll be hard-pressed to distinguish it from the conventional drive version.” While the Pacifica does have several technologies like regenerative braking and a high-capacity battery system, it drives like an ordinary gas vehicle.
One exception to the Pacifica Hybrid is that it has state-of-the-art systems hidden under the hood that get up to 84 MPGe* when properly equipped. That gives you a total of 566 miles in driving range, with up to 33 miles in pure electric driving—perfect for quick trips. You can fully recharge in as little as two hours when equipped with a 240-volt Level II charger, which is more than enough range and charge time for the average driver. Plus, the battery even comes with a 10-Year/150,000-mile Limited Warranty.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid may look like a sporty new multi-purpose vehicle, but under the hood is one of the most advanced powertrains on the market. This is the first hybrid minivan to be introduced, making it a truly revolutionary model. Stop by Gossett CDJR Fiat to learn more about the 2017 Chrysler Pacific Hybrid.
