The highly anticipated 2017 Chrysler Pacifica hybrid is currently on the production line at the company’s plant in Windsor, Ontario, and the first unit was completed this past December 1st. It represents the very first electric vehicle to be assembled by the manufacturer at the plant, which has been turning out minivans for the past 33 years.
Since the first minivans rolled off the plant’s production lines back in 1983, the facility has produced 10 million of the 14.3 million minivans the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Group has produced over the past three decades.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica offers a range of 53 km in fully electric mode, and of 917 km in total – making its combined fuel consumption rating a paltry 2.6Le/100 km.
The Chrysler Pacifica recently earned another in a long list of awards, this time from AJAC, which named it Best Large Utility Vehicle.
