    The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid stunned many critics with its smooth powertrain and high fuel economy, but with gasoline prices quite low and the hybrid premium fairly high, it hasn’t set the retail world on fire. It did find one happy customer, though, with room for more: self-driving firm Waymo...

    Either ahead of the Jeep K8, or replacing it, is the Jeep Yuntu, a PHEV concept to be shown in Shanghai. The Yuntu bears a definite resemblance to the K8 we revealed last week; it has LED headlights and, apparently, suicide doors. Since the Chrysler Pacifica rides on a very similar platform...

    FCA has created a new “building wrap” for its Auburn Hills headquarters tower, celebrating the impending release of the Pacifica hybrid — still predicted to deliver 80 MPG-equivalent when running on electricity (which it can do for around 30 miles when fully charged). The plug-in hybrid was...
