Those who are waiting for their brand new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrids may get some good news in the next couple of weeks. On April 17, the auto manufacturer starting delivering its first plug-in minivan to some dealers in the United States. This is five months after production began on December 1, 2016. This has been a highly anticipated minivan, and while delivery was delayed, most buyers are sure to be happy nonetheless. While there was no given reason for the delay, it could have been for a host of reasons.

Fiat Chrysler wanted to produce the highest qualify minivan that is both comfortable and roomy, and with a plug-in hybrid, there are obviously other things to keep in mind and worry about. The company, back in January, said that it would start shipping the hybrids sometime in the first quarter, which just ended in March, so the company is only slightly behind schedule.

The technologically- advanced Pacifica Hybrid is coming off the line with the highest qualities possible. Fiat Chrysler is confident that its buyers are going to fall in love. With the plug-in version, you can do your errands, take kids to school and even use your van for a date night, all without using gas. The company really began ramping up production on this environmentally-friendly minivan on Friday, April 7. This means that if you are waiting for one, you won’t have to wait long as they will soon come fresh off the assembly line.

It’s getting harder and harder to find a vehicle made in the United States or Canada, but Chrysler is building this one at its Windsor Assembly Plant. A self-driving Pacifica Hybrid minivan was showed off at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this year, and this is just another example of what Chrysler has in store for the future. And, if you think self-driving minivans aren’t going to be available for another decade, you may be surprised to know that autonomous cars, trucks, SUVs and minivans may be here sooner than you may think.

The gas-powered Chrysler Pacific replaced the Town & Country, and it’s been a big hit. Just this March, Fiat Chrysler sold over 9,000 Pacifica minivans, and at the auto show in Detroit, it was named the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year. To test drive a Chrysler Pacifica, you should do so at Chapman Chrysler Jeep. By checking out a current gas-powered or plug-in model, you can see what the company has to offer.

If you want the plug-in version, you should know that it can get 33 miles on a single charge, which should be sufficient considering most people’s commutes are shorter than 30 miles. It has a rating of an impressive 84 miles per gallon when both electric power and gasoline are used, and the company recently said that the lithium-ion battery can be recharged in about two hours. This is a huge benefit as older batteries used to take overnight to charge, which made it very difficult to rely on a electric car.

 

The Jeep brand is envied by all other SUV makers, and most people in the industry strive to be more like Jeep when it comes time to designing SUVs.
