Can we Expect an Electric Chrysler Pacifica in Canada?

Can we Expect an Electric Chrysler Pacifica in Canada?

The Chrysler Pacifica is a superb minivan. A van that redefined what was thought to be an out of date genre and made it relevant again. It seems the work isn’t done as Chrysler are mooting an electric Chrysler minivan. Could this be an electric Chrsyler Pacifica

 

Chrysler CEO Christine Feuell said in an interview at the 2022 New York auto show that the automaker was considering bringing an electric minivan to market.

 

When asked about what they were planning, Feuell said "I think it's safe to say that we are looking to reinvent the minivan in our future lineup."

 

While that doesn’t exactly give us much, it shows us that Chrysler are seriously considering updating their lineup.

 

As electric is the future direction of driving, it stands to reason, an electric minivan will form part, or all of that direction.

 

Unfortunately, we don’t expect any new minivan before 2025. The good news is that Chrysler is engaged in developing new cars between now and then to widen their range of two. We are also unsure if this will be an electric Chrysler Pacifica or a new mini-van all-together!

 

2022 Chrysler Pacifica

 

The Pacifica was updated in 2021 and has been refreshed to bring it right up to date. While there isn’t much competition, that competition is fierce. That puts a lot of pressure on the Pacifica to deliver.

 

Fortunately, it more than delivers.

 

It’s a good looking minivan with an aero look, low front end, modest hood, steeply raked windshield and a long roofline. As minivans go, it’s a great design.

 

Inside, the Pacifica can seat 7 or 8 depending on the configuration.

 

The cabin is cavernous, with plenty of space for everyone, lots of storage and cubbies and the ability to fold the rear rows down to create a huge cargo area.

 

Stow n’ Go is present and correct and will allow you to fold the seats all the way into the floor. This provides a completely flat surface to use for trips to Ikea or anywhere else you might need that kind of space.

 

Under the hood

 

The 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is driven by a 3.6-litre V6 or a V6 plus electric motor in a PHEV.

 

The Pentastar V6 delivers 276 hp to a 9 speed automatic transmission with AWD as an option.

 

The hybrid uses the same engine detuned to 260 hp alongside an electric motor and battery pack. This is good for 30 miles of electric-only range.

 

Both models deliver decent performance, smooth acceleration and reasonable gas mileage. More so with the hybrid for shorter journeys.

 

As minivans go, the 2022 Chrysler Pacifica is as good as it gets. It’s well thought-out, spacious, very capable and one of the most flexible family vehicles you can buy!
