You charge it at home for 2 hours and drive 33 miles on electric battery power. If you read this in about 5 years, this may not be a news to you, but now it is great news. Ride in comfort short or long trips. Parks itself. Accelerates and brakes itself, even warns you if you have a car close by, in front, behind, on the side. Get close to the line and it will pull your wheel in. I know, right, future man? It has been a month since we bought it, we drive it every day, we have still a third tank full!
We've put 800 miles on our new van and have yet to fill the tank up from the full tank that the dealer provided. The van takes approximately 12 hours to fully charge on a 120V wall outlet and will travel 40 miles solely on electricity. This is basically as far as we travel in a days time for preschool, groceries, friends, and errands. Once you run out of battery the gasoline engine kicks in however, it is so subtle that you cannot even feel or hear the difference. The interior rivals that of a high end luxury vehicle and the technology is second to none. We can even remote start the van through an app on our smartphones! The trip computer is telling me that we are averaging 48 MPG on the gas engine, so even if you run out of electricity the van is extremely fuel efficient due to the hybrid technology. This is my first Chrysler product that I've ever owned, but I'm seriously thinking about buying another after owning this for a month. This is the ultimate family hauler, and I'm so glad that I waited for this van instead of going ahead with an Odyssey or Sienna. Don't think twice, just buy this van!
