Cars.com says that around town, they were able to get 33+ miles on battery power alone, and then after that an average of 45 MPG in stop and go traffic because of the regenerative power.“It’s an idea that we’re kind of surprised hasn’t happened sooner — a hybrid minivan.”
They list the major downsides as:
1. Not being able to choose electric only driving - the Pacifica's computer chooses when and how often the gas engine kicks in. If you have a heavy foot, obviously more often!
2. The battery pack takes up the stow-and-go section for the second row seat which makes the van less convenient than the non-plugin hybrid version if you plan to haul large loads.
