PHEV minivans: fourth quarter of 2016

by David Zatz on

Did you want a plug-in hybrid-electric Chrysler Pacifica this year? There will likely be a wait, with production pushed back slightly, to the fourth quarter of 2016.

The company’s first home-grown retail-sale hybrid, and the second in its history (after the Durango/Aspen which came from a GM-BMW-DCX partnership), will likely be closely scrutinized by critics and quality mavens alike.

They will also be the basis for one hundred minivans produced for Google as test autonomous-driving cars.

News of the delay came out at an FCA presentation in Windsor, Ontario on Friday.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades.
