2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid brings green option to family ride

July 17th, 2017 by

Chrysler has done it again! The American auto maker introduced North America to the minivan in the early 1980s — and now Chrysler dealers are again revolutionizing the family van by giving us the country’s first-ever hybrid minivan.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid brings money-saving efficiency and a fun style to family transportation. And these groundbreaking vehicles will be arriving soon at Blue Ridge Chrysler of Martinsville.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has a hybrid engine that can go up to 30 miles in all-electric mode.

This cool new family ride provides a great green choice for parents looking to do something good for future generations.

The new hybrid Chrysler Pacifica is powered by an electric motor and a gasoline engine. It automatically switches between the two for the best of both worlds. It’s Earth-friendly power and efficiency.

Go 30 miles all-electric

The 2017 Pacifica Hybrid has a surprising driving range of 30 miles in all-electric mode. While it might not look like much on paper, that’s a long way as far as reducing your carbon footprint!

Most carpools to school or shopping errands to town are far less than 30 miles roundtrip, so it is entirely possible to operate in electric mode on most typical days.

And you’ll have a combined driving range of up to 530 miles between fill-ups for those long weekend road trips.

A lithium-ion battery warranty that goes on and on and on

Your Chrysler dealer is proud of the lithium-ion battery that drives the hybrid nature of the latest Pacifica. In fact, they stand behind the battery with a 10-year or 100,000-150,000 mile warranty (depending on which stat you live in).

Plug and Play!

The lithium-ion battery can be fully charged in as little as two hours with the available 240-volt Level II charger. That means you can drop off the kids at school, come home and recharge and then be out running errands again by lunch without ever using a drop of gasoline!

Don’t worry, you can use your typical 120-volt wall outlet as well — it’ll just take a little longer. The Pacifca’s lithium-ion battery even self charges through regenerative braking, which captures energy from the brakes when they are applied.

Public charging stations are beginning to pop up across the country, so there’s a good chance of keeping your battery charged and avoiding gas pumps.

So visit Blue Ridge Chrysler of Martinsville today and test drive the country’s first truly green option in minivans.
