How do you charge the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid?
It’s super simple to charge your Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. Simply plug the charger cord in to the vehicle's power outlet. It comes with a Level I 120-volt AC charging cord set, which requires a conventional 120-volt AC grounded wall receptacle along with the portable charging cord set.
You will find the charging cord set by opening cargo area storage bin on the driver side. Inside the bin, you’ll find the charging cord in a storage bag. Keep in mind, that this cord set is for Level I charging only.
Before you begin charging, it’s important to ensure that your vehicle is turned off and in park. Once you begin, plug the AC plug of the charging set into the grounded wall receptacle. Then, take the charge connector and place it in the vehicle’s charge inlet. A “click” will be heard when inserted correctly, and the charge active indicator lights will cycle from left to right. Once your vehicle is fully charged, the lights in the charge indicator will show all five bars. You’re now ready to go.

How does the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid technology system work?
It is pretty complex, but we'll try to simplify it for you. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid utilizes two electric drive motors, a planetary gear set and a one-way clutch internal to its transmission. Each electric drive motor has a primary function. One motor is used for charging the high-voltage battery and starting the gas engine while the other is used solely for electric drive operation. The Pacifica Hybrid is unique in that given the one-way clutch, the charging/starting motor can also be used in dual motor electric drive. This additional functionality maximizes efficiency and also allows for optimum all-electric drive vehicle speed. The V6 engine is seamlessly integrated into the powertrain and contributes toward high-voltage battery charging or vehicle propulsion automatically based on driving conditions. Both motors are constantly working to best integrate electric power versus gas (until charge is depleted) or vice versa. The system is consistently monitoring to provide you with maximum fuel efficiency.
