Introducing the next-generation in affordable, convenient family transportation. The standard version of the minivan features multiple improvements over the outgoing Town & Country, however it’s the new 2017 Pacifica Hybrid that really sets the vehicle apart from the competition.
As you may have expected, the main difference between the 2017 Pacifica and the 2017 Pacifica Hybrid is the powertrain. While the standard version of the minivan features Chrysler’s 287 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar engine, the hybrid Pacifica features a de-tuned 248 horsepower and 230 lb-ft of torque version of the mill.
Than 3.6-liter V6 is linked up to a nine-speed-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, like the standard model. The Pacifica hybrid, however, offers much better fuel economy thanks to a 16-kWh battery providing up to 30 miles of electic range. When combined with the standard gasoline fuel economy ratings, the Pacifica Hybrid returns the equivalent of 80-miles-per-gallon.
In order to make room for the batteries, Chrysler has had to rid the 2017 Pacifica Hybrid of the standard vehicle’s Stow ‘N Go seating storage system. The Pacifica Hybrid is also set apart by its model-exclusive 17- and 18-inch wheels and of course the charge-port on the driver’s side of the vehicle.
Available in conjunction with the 2017 Pacifica’s Touring, “TOURING PLUS for fleets only” and Limited Platinum trim-lines, the 2017 Pacifica Hybrid should offer minivan buyers a more fuel-efficient alternative to the standard version of the people mover. Vehicles are available for order now!
The Mobile Power Station® is the first-of-its-kind electric, off-road utility vehicle with the capability of eliminating single-use diesel engine equipment with a clean, multi-functional workhorse.
The MPS is built for governmental fleet managers and meets the maintenance and emergency response needs of first responders, public works, airports, universities and resorts that are incentivized to turn to environmentally friendly machines that must work every day.
It boasts both high and standard flow hydraulics, including Type I, II and II tool circuits to provide quiet work tools in the field. The MPS accepts any CAT® or Bobcat® front end attachments and has a fully configurable bed that allows it to replace multiple fleet vehicles. This significantly cuts costs on machinery and ongoing maintenance. It can be geographically personalized, allowing fleet managers to purchase add-on resources and tools that best fit their needs.
The MPS is a superior choice for emergency response teams as it can be submerged to 3 feet to provide power where you need it most, including flooded areas. And with zero emissions and unprecedented performance from its electric drivetrain, the MPS stands in a category of its own.

The BYD 8Y is an all-electric yard truck for port, railyard, and warehouse operations. This zero-emission, heavy duty truck was designed and built by BYD for the freight industry. It can haul equivalent loads to diesel trucks and the electric motor, which is built by BYD and integrated into the rear axle, has greater horsepower and torque compared to conventional vehicles. The 8Y can operate for 10-15 hours between charges and can charge in as little as 1.3 hours depending on the power interface, allowing the truck to meet 24/7/365 operations. The first trucks were delivered to the Port of Los Angeles’s PASHA terminal in 2016, with additional deliveries to BNSF Railway, Port of Los Angeles, Port of San Diego, and Daylight Transport scheduled for 2017.
BYD’s K9S is a 35-foot all-electric transit bus, with a range of 145 miles. The K9S is tested by the Federal Transit Administration’s Model Bus Testing Program or “Altoona Testing.” All zero-emission BYD transit buses come with the industry’s only no-nonsense 12 year battery warranty. The primary propulsion components on the K9S are manufactured by BYD, including the batteries, high voltage components, and in-hub electric motors. Operating savings with the K9S result in annual savings of approximately $45,000 per year, resulting in a payback period for transit agencies of 4 years relative to CNG buses and 5-6 years relative to diesel buses.
