At Route 46 Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM, we are always trying to stay ahead of all the latest news and rumors from the automotive world. Recently we started to hear murmurs from within the industry that a new electric minivan/SUV may be coming from the experts at Chrysler. Let's take a closer look at what could be the most innovative vehicle of 2017.

The All-Electric Chrysler Pacifica

According to Bloomberg, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is planning to introduce an all-electric version of the Chrysler Pacifica minivan. The unveiling should take place at the CES 2017, which runs January 5-8 and is being held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Currently the only all-electric vehicle that FCA offers is the 2017 Fiat 500e, which is only available in California and Oregon, so this addition would be a quite exciting addition to the lineup. Another rumor has it that the electric Chrysler Pacifica is an offshoot of the recent FCA partnership with Google.


What's Available Now

As of this moment, the closest thing to an all-electric Chrysler Pacifica available is the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, which just so happens to be the first hybrid minivan on the market. This highly economical minivan has a 3.6-liter Pentastar gasoline V-6 engine with an Atkinson combustion cycle and a 16 kW Lithium-Ion battery pack that has a two-hour charge time with the available Mopar 240V charger or 12 to 14 hours on 110V. It has an all-electric range of 33 miles and up to a 530-mile total driving range. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid offers drivers a number of other benefits including:

  • Electrically Variable Transmission
  • A 10-Year/150,000-Mile Limited Battery Warranty
  • 80 MPGe* when using both electricity and gas
  • Uconnect 8.4 touchscreen that allows you to monitor both hybrid and electric performance
  • Mobile app that shows driving history, charging progress, and locates local charging stations
  • Available hands-free sliding doors, Alloy Nappa leather Trim seats, 360° Surround View Camera, and Adaptive Cruise Control with stop and go
  • Uconnect Theater that features dual 10.1-inch HD touchscreens with a Blu-ray player

Until the release of the all-electric Chrysler Pacifica, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is your best option if you are looking for both a durable and roomy minivan that also gets outstanding gas mileage.
