Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Minivan Named Best Green Car to Buy

The pile of accolades for the Chrysler Pacifica minivan just keeps on growing–the vehicle was just named the 2018 Green Car Reports Best Car to Buy.

Green Car Reports editors considered the Pacifica’s new technological advances, its practicality and its overall impact on the environment before making their decision.

“The Chrysler Pacifica wins because it’s a one-of-a-kind vehicle: The sole seven-seat minivan with a plug-in hybrid powertrain sold in the U.S. this year,” John Voelcker, senior editor at Green Car Reports, explained in a statement. “Not only does it offer all the virtues of the well-received Chrysler Pacifica, it offers substantial real-world electric range–30 miles or more in most cases–and much better fuel economy when operating as a hybrid.”

The Pacifica minivan has already received numerous awards thanks to its 84 miles per gallon range and 33 miles of all-electric range.

“The virtues of the basic Chrysler Pacifica are well-documented: it’s stylish, with an interior design far more elegant than you’d expect, plus excellent controls and interactive displays and more family-friendly features than we have space to cover,” Voelcker continued. “Adding a plug-in hybrid powertrain to that package, at a price that’s essentially offset by the full federal income-tax credit, makes a very good vehicle exceptional.”

Out of all the current Chrysler models for sale, none other has inspired such high praise from critics and regular drivers alike. The Car Connection (a sister site of Green Car Reports) named the Pacifica the 2018 Best Minivan to Buy and chose the Pacifica Hybrid as the 2018 Best Hybrid Vehicle to Buy. The Car Connection uses a 10-point rating system which analyzes vehicles for things like safety, comfort, utility, fuel economy, performance and styling. Only the best of the best come out on top.

Across the board, the Chrysler Pacifica was the most awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017 thanks largely to its total reinvention of what a minivan can be.

The Pacifica is bold, highly functional and efficient beyond your wildest dreams. The vehicle is also equipped with over 100 available safety and security features, comes with a top-of-the-line Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system, and packs more cargo space than any large SUV or minivan currently on the market.
