Electrified efficiency in a minivan won’t come cheap, with Chrysler tacking a steep premium to the price of its new Pacifica Hybrid.
The electrified people mover will start at $41,995 in the U.S. before any federal, state or local incentives, and a whopping $56,995 in Canada before any provincial rebates. Chrysler says the federal rebate alone in the U.S. could bring the price down to $34,495, and $42,495 in Ontario, the Canadian province with the largest rebate.
Chrysler says the hybrid minivan is good for as much as 30 miles (48 kilometers) of pure electric driving, and a combined range of 530 miles (853 kilometers). Regardless, that’s a lot of dough for a minivan. But get past the sticker shock and the Pacifica Hybrid packs a lot of content into its steep MSRP.

Available in two trims in the U.S., the Pacifica Hybrid Premium gets standard leather seats that are heated up front, tri-zone automatic temperature control, a power tailgate, rear park assist, blind-spot monitoring, active noise cancellation, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen running the Uconnect infotainment system.
The $44,995 Platinum trim adds Nappa leather seats that are ventilated in the first row, a heated steering wheel, a 13-speaker Alpine audio system, 3D navigation, power sliding doors, a rear seat entertainment system, and an advanced safety suite that includes forward collision warning, rain-sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, a 360° camera, and parallel and perpendicular park assist.
It also features a fully-transferable warranty that’s good for up to 10 years or 150,000 miles on the battery, and 15 years or 150,000 miles on emissions components. The standard three-year, 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty is standard.
Canadians, meanwhile, will only be offered the Platinum model. The warranty north of the border is good for up to 10 years and 160,000 kilometers on the battery, while the powertrain gets a five-year, 100,000-kilometer warranty. A three-year, 60,000-kilometer warranty also applies.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid goes on sale in December.
