Chrysler shows off Pacifica Hybrid, its first hybrid minivan
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid debuted in January, and it got prominent play at the Washington Auto Show. Chryslerês first hybrid minivan, it has a 33-mile all-electric range.
The Pacifica Hybrid is a better value than the gasoline equivalent, said Matt McAlear, head of minivan product marketing for Chrysler. Itês priced at $41,995, but would cost $34,495 with the $7,500 federal tax credit. Another distinction: Itês the only hybrid with 18-inch wheels. It can be charged at home in 14 hours (using a remote charge with a smartphone) and charged at a Level 2 public charging station in two hours. Batteries are stored under the second row seats.
The Pacifica Hybrid will be available in all 50 states, and every Chrysler dealer can service it. It will be available at the end of March, 2017. Chrysler is confident it will attract new buyers, McAlear said.Download Bulletin PDF
