For families looking to electrify their commutes, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid may be the easiest way to enter the world of EV driving. Tom Voelk and his family take this roomy minivan long distance to discover the flexibility of plug-in hybrids. And if you don’t learn how awesome vans and plug-in hybrids can be, you’ll discover some great vacation spots in California and Nevada. Full disclosure- Chrysler provided the vehicle for this 10-day trip and Visa gift cards for gas, charging and incidentals as part of a manufacturer’s event. Opinions and editorial, as always, are mine (plus the observations of dozens of people that ended up riding in the Pacifica Hybrid on this trip.).
