It is currently the only minivan in Canada that qualifies for a full $5,000 federal Electric Vehicle purchase incentive, in addition to any applicable provincial or territorial incentives. This milestone also aligns with Stellantis’ Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, emphasizing the automaker’s commitment to delivering clean, safe, and affordable mobility solutions.

- The Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid employs a dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) paired with a modified 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 gasoline engine.
- The vehicle features seamless driving experiences with built-in regenerative braking technology and a Max Regeneration mode for enhanced efficiency.
- The minivan provides seven-passenger seating and has more standard safety features than any other vehicle in its class.
The production of the 100,000th Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid is not just a milestone for Stellantis’ Windsor Assembly Plant but also a significant marker in Chrysler’s transition to an electrified future. “The Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid jump-started the Chrysler brand’s electrified journey, and we continue to build on this foundation to deliver the first all-electric Chrysler vehicle in 2025 and an all-electric Chrysler brand portfolio in 2028,” said Chris Feuell, Chrysler brand chief executive officer at Stellantis. The vehicle continues to lead in its segment, offering a blend of efficiency, innovation, and safety, thereby setting a strong precedent for future electrified models from the brand.
