Chrysler launched production of the Pacifica Hybrid at it Windsor Assembly Plant, Ontario last Monday (November 29th).
Here we can see that process underway (above video), and as a bonus, there is some extra "running footage" of the Pacifica on the road below.
The plug-in hybrid Pacifica is assembled at the same production line as the conventional version.
After $7,500 federal tax credit, Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid starts at $34,495 (+DST). The plug-in minivan is expected to arrive in January, but we would not count out a few deliveries before this year expires.
2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid:
- 33 miles of all-electric range and 84 MPGe fuel economy
- all-electric mode capable of over 120 km/h (75 mph)
- 16 kWh battery, which of course qualifies the van for $7,500 in federal tax credit money
- batteries are liquid-cooled (same basic system as the Bolt EV – cells contact an aluminum fin that conducts the heat to a cooling plate), consists of six 16-cell modules
- NMC cathode and graphite anode chemistry, with one of the highest densities for any PHEV at 193 W·h/kg
- 2-hour charging capability
- 3.6-liter Pentastart V6 petrol engine; in this case with a lowered output to 248hp with 230lb ft of torque, and two electric motors
- second-row seats also can be removed, but the battery takes up the area normally reserved for “stow-n-go” seating
