Pacifica hybrid: high on gasoline, too

by David Zatz on

The actual gas mileage numbers for Chrysler’s Pacifica Hybrid minivan weren’t ready until after production started — but we have them now.

The company already reported that the EPA figure for running on electricity was 84 MPGe, around 5% higher than Chrysler’s estimate. The total range is 33 miles on electricity alone. So what if you want to drive the full 570 miles you get on a full tank and battery?


According to the EPA’s web site, the combined city/highway mileage on gasoline is 32 mpg. That includes times when the regenerative braking adds power to the battery, which is then spent boosting acceleration as needed. The EPA did not release the city and highway figures separately on their web site.

The hybrid starts at $34,495, well equipped, after a $7,500 U.S. tax credit, and is to arrive at dealers “over the next several months.”
