The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid took home two awards for the third consecutive year.
June 10, 2019 - Three FCA US vehicles earned four awards from the Automotive Science Group (ASG) in their 2019 Automotive Performance Index (API) study.
The 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid continued to be a leader in its class, taking home two awards for the third consecutive year: Best All-around Performance and Best Environmental Performance. The 2019 Jeep® Compass and 2019 Fiat 500L won the Economic Performance Award in their respective segments.
In ASG’s data-driven automotive assessment, the Pacifica Hybrid outperformed all minivan variants in its segment. The Pacifica Hybrid also earned a class-leading environmental performance rating, outperforming the average vehicle in its segment by 34 percent, producing 34 percent less CO2-e emissions during the first 6.5 years in its life cycle.
“The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid furthers FCA’s position in the ASG 2019 study with its 32-mile all-electric range and advanced gas-electric combination that not only reduces emissions, but also significantly reduces fuel costs by leveraging the increasingly cleaner U.S. power grid as a fuel source,” Colby Self, managing director at ASG, said. “The plug-in remains unrivaled in the minivan segment, providing the best all-around performance in its class since the model was first introduced in 2017.”
