Chrysler has truly transformed the minivan by “electrifying” its popular seven-seat Pacifica to create this plug-in version. The 2017 Pacifica Hybrid goes up to 33 miles on an electric charge and then another almost 500 miles thanks to its powerful 3.6-liter V6. The Pacifica has never been your grandmother’s van and its slimmer silhouette makes it one of the best-looking minivans ever.

On a road test, we discovered this quasi EV’s performance is every bit as fun as the petrol-powered Pacifica or maybe even better as the instant-torque acceleration makes for a smooth and powerful start. Steering, handling and braking are exemplary on the 2017 Pacifica Hybrid. The tight turning radius make it drive more like a car than other minivans and adds to the fun quotient. Plus, we appreciate the safety features such as 360-degree cameras and adaptive cruise control.
