Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid

Introduced in early 2017, the Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid was the first of its class in the U.S. market to provide 33 all-electric miles that, combined with gas, give 30 MPG of city/highway driving.

Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid EV Charging Overview

The 16kW/h lithium-ion battery pack can be charged with a Level 1 or Level 2 Type 1 J1772 EV charger at a maximum acceptance rate of 6.6 kW/h with a 240-volt outlet. There are many questions about EV charging for Chrysler Pacifica PHEVs, so we have produced the guide below to answer any questions you may have.

EV Charging times for Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid

We have produced the table below to estimate the Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid’s charge times from empty to full and compare different common residential plug types for both Level 1 and Level 2 charging.

Plug Type Battery Size (KwH)  Level  Charge Rate AEFA Charge Time
5-15 (regular 3 pin) 16 Level 1  1.5 KW/hour @ 12 amps ~10.5 hours
14-30 (4-pin electric dryer type) 16 Level 2 5.5 KW/hour @ 24 amps ~3 hours
14-50 (4-pin) 16 Level 2  9.6 KW/hour @ 40 amps ~2.5 hours
Plug Type Battery Size (KwH) Charge Rate AEFA Charge Time
Level 1 – 5-15 (regular 3-pin) 120V 16 1.5 KW/hour @ 12 amps ~10.5 hours
14-30 (4-pin electric dryer type) 240V 16 5.5 KW/hour @ 24 amps ~3 hours
Level 2- 14-50 (4-pin) 240V 16 9.6 KW/hour @ 40 amps ~2.5 hours

To preserve the battery’s longevity, the preferential charge range is 20% to 80%, which will avoid any potential reduction in battery performance but slower charging rates outside this range.

Why upgrade your Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid charger?

Most Chrysler Pacifica PHEV owners seek the fastest charge time for their PHEV. To speed up the charge time, we recommend upgrading from a manufacturer’s Type 1 Level 1 EV Charger to a Type 1 Level 2 240-volt EV charger. Faster charge times will allow owners to utilize more electric miles, saving money on expensive gas miles and providing the full benefit of electric driving with added acceleration and cleaner green driving.

Connector type and charging rates

The Chrysler Pacifica PHEV can be charged with a Type 1 J1772 charger connector from the convenience of your own home, at work, or at a public charge point. Wherever you charge, the Chrysler Pacifica maximum alternating current (AC) charge rate is limited to 6.6kW/h. Therefore, with a 40amp/9.6kW EV charger, the car will only take the charge it is rated for at 6.6kW/h.

EV Home Charger Options for your Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid

At EV chargers, we have a variety of charger types to suit all EV owners. Our most popular EV charger type is the NEMA 14-50 Plug type. You can select the 32A, which is the fastest the Pacifica will charge at, or the 40A in case you upgrade your car in the future and want more speed. Our chargers are adjustable, so they can be dialed up or down depending on your needs. Another popular option is the NEMA 14-30 EV plug that can charge at 24A. This is also a Level 2 240V EV charger, but it’ll charge slightly slower. Please refer to our charging table at the top of this page.

Best places to charge a Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid

This will depend on the PHEV owner’s preference and lifestyle. However, most Chrysler Pacifica PHEV owners will opt to charge at home to benefit from cheaper overnight charging rates and added convenience. The PHEV can alternatively be charged at work or any public Level 2 charging stations. Depending on the location, overnight stay locations often have charging facilities available that can be used with a 14-50 Level 2 EV charger.

Cost of charging a Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid

Charging your Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid will depend on a number of factors, such as location (residential or commercial), the time of day you chose to charge, the State you’re charging in, or the charting power. Each of these factors will determine the cost to charge at any given point. For example, in locations such as California, electricity is more expensive than the U.S. current average of 20 ¢/kWh. However, we have estimated the below costs based on the U.S. average tariff.

PlaceAvg. costCost/mile 
Home (empty to full)*$2.40.15¢
Commercial chargers**$6.240.39¢
Place Avg. cost Cost/mile

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I charge my Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid at a commercial charging station?

You can charge your Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid at Level 2 commercial charging stations, however, PHEVs are not suitable for charging at DC Fast chargers.

A Level 2 240-volt EV charger is the fastest charging option, at either 32 amps or 40 amps. We offer these chargers as Level 2 14-50 and 6-50 EV chargers.

The Chrysler Pacifica PHEV uses a Type 1 J1772 connector.

As a Level 1 charger only admits 120V of power, the charge time of 10.5 hours generally limits the ability to fully charge and restricts utilization of electric miles. Depending on EV owner preferences and lifestyles, this may not be sufficient.

As Level 2 chargers can fully charge the Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid in 2.5 hours, a Level 2 14-50 (240V) EV charger is the most popular option.

The main benefit of Level 2 charging is the ability to utilize advantageous charging times due to higher voltage output. This results in lower costs when using cheaper overnight charge rates and the added convenience of having a fully charged all-electric range at your disposal.

Each PHEV has a specific power acceptance rate, which for the Chrysler Pacifica PHEV is currently limited to 6.6 kilowatts per hour. However, future upgraded models could potentially exhibit advanced power acceptance settings to allow faster charging.
