Hybrid Setup of the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
The hybrid power of the Pacifica Hybrid begins with a 3.6L V6 engine. Meanwhile, one electric motor is mounted to the front of the engine, where you’d normally find the alternator, while a second is found in the transmission, taking the traditional torque converters place. A lithium-ion battery pack powers the electric motors. This hybrid powertrain gives the Pacifica a 520-mile driving range, 82 MPGe, and an all-electric driving range of 30 miles. Additionally, the Pacifica Hybrid offers drivers 230 lb-ft of instant torque backed up by 260 horsepower. As standard equipment, the Pacifica Hybrid is equipped with front-wheel drive powered by an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. However, all-wheel drive is available, giving drivers more all-weather confidence.

How is the Pacifica Hybrid Recharged?
Being a plug-in hybrid, the Pacifica Hybrid is primarily recharged by a power cord. Upon purchasing a Pacifica Hybrid, owners get a Level I EV charger. This plugs into a wall outlet and gives a full charge in roughly 12 hours. Meanwhile, owners can purchase a Level II EV charging station. This is professionally installed and cuts the time for a full charge down to as little as two hours. While it is necessary for the Pacifica Hybrid to be recharged by a cord, it uses brake regeneration to recharge the battery on the go. This takes the kinetic energy created by the friction between the brake pads and rotors, translates it into electrical energy, and sends it back to the battery to maintain or increase the charge. This happens by reversing the EV system when pressure is removed from the gas pedal. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the pads are squeezed against the rotors, creating friction. This kinetic energy is turned into electricity and wired back to the EV battery.
