A minivan is, arguably, the most versatile vehicle you can own. For transporting people and stuff, you won’t find a more practical solution. Now, add the fuel economy and extended range offered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Stir in the environmental and peace of mind benefits of burning less fossil fuel as you motor your family across the countryside.
You can see where this is headed. While hybrids were once relegated almost exclusively to small cars that would turn in eye-popping fuel mileage numbers, Fiat Chrysler’s decision to equip its newest minivan with a plug-in hybrid option seems eminently sensible. That is just one of the reasons there is a lot to like about the Chrysler Pacifica minivan in its plug-in hybrid versions.
