Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will get a LG Chem battery

2017 Chrysler Pacifica in red

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid minivan that will have an EPA electric range of 30 miles and a 7 or 8 seats configuration.

 

Go camping, fold down the seats and you can sleep in there.

 

LG Chem will supply the 16 kWh battery and the battery management system (BMS) to protect it.

The South Korean battery maker is the now supplier of batteries for Detroit’s Big Three automakers (Ford, GM and Chrysler).

  1. well well well who would say that FIAT group is also working on electric vehicles. They are being forced to move this way but glad to hear they are at least starting. Would be great if they would consider making a BEV of this car with a 70 kWh battery.

    1. Keep dreaming… Everytime I hear about FIAT and BEV in the same sentence, I just see “compliance” all the way…

  2. Fur sure it is just a child born out of compliance but as I said it is better than nothing and if demand exists they will be dumb not to follow up creating a BEV edition.

  3. BEVs demand is extraordinary… yes, it suffers from hype and trend, but if prices were sensible then we could say goodbye to ICE cars a lot sooner than we unfortunately will…
    Brands are waking up, i agree, but they stick with profits and to the winning formulae of ICEs… it’s sad but lets just not loose hope… it’s what drives us, the EV believers 🙂

  4. It’s a shame Fiat’s lack of commitment regarding BEVs. A Fiat 500e with CCS would be great in Europe.

    Currently Fiat 500e is build in Mexico and sold in USA with a 24 kWh battery made with Samsung SDI cells. Maybe an improved Fiat 500e is planned with LG Chem cells.
