The Chrysler Pacific Hybrid creates a new choice for the minivan category as a plug in hybrid minivan and it’s the only one like it in its class.
It compares well to its competitors, with a sleek design that is more eye catching than the Sienna. The hybrid system comes with two electric motors that will provide 250 total horsepower. It has a CVT transmission as well. You can get a little bit more horsepower with the non-hybrid version.
Where the hybrid version stands out is in the MPGs. On gas alone the minivan gets 32 mpg city/highway, but adding in the electric power it can get up to 84. The Pacifica can travel 33 miles just on the electric power alone, which is a lot considering the size of the vehicle that can haul eight adults.
There is plenty of cargo space, as a minivan should have, and the third row can still seat adults rather comfortably.
