2017 Chrysler Pacifica: America's first plug-in hybrid minivan

Fri Jun 02, 2017 3:56 pm

I always love to read the reviews. Here is another one by LATimes.
FCA’s Chrysler division has beaten its competitors to market with the country’s first plug-in hybrid minivan.

But is this the answer to the question no one has been asking? Does anybody want one?

Chrysler’s gasoline-powered Pacifica fights for market share with Honda’s Odyssey, Toyota’s Sienna, Dodge's Grand Caravan, Nissan’s Quest, Kia’s Sedona and a number of other contenders -- including its own Town & Country minivan.

The company has done well with this van. Chrysler sold 62,336 Pacificas last year, and is on pace to beat that for 2017, with 35,479 units sold through April.

The bump in sales may be coming from the new hybrid version, though Fiat Chrysler Automobiles doesn’t break out sales numbers by model, and only started delivering the hybrid Pacificas in April.

Saw another post about the second-row seats here in the Chrysler Pacifica forum.
The second-row seats have their own climate control station, individual seat-back entertainment screens and multiple device plug-ins.
The 2nd-row seats cannot be stowed because of the battery pack underneath. But this is a feature only for the hybrid version. In the non-hybrid version, these seats can be folded and tucked away.

$2,500 savings for fuel cost, it is a good deal for five years.
