I was reading an article about the Hybrid trim levels. Seems there are two versions.
Limited and Touring.

I saw an MSRP price on the Limited of $31,200.
A VERY excellent price if the $7,500 fed incentive is applied.

Keep hearing models to be delivered closer to end of 2016. Ugh.

Anyone have news as to the options of the trim levels and the Touring pricing?

Any guesses on how to get one of the first ones off the line?

Thx, jeff

I highly doubt that MSRP is correct. Seems at least $20k off the mark, to me. Maybe that is the price after the rebate, but even that seems very low.

Not sure how that would make sense since the MSRP of the non-EV Pacifica in Limited trim is $42,495 (Chrysler website, Build and Price). The Touring L Plus is $37,895. From what I have read, those are the only 2 trim levels that the hybrid model will be available in. With the $7500 incentive, I would expect at the very minimum the MSRP of the 2 models to be $49,995 and $45,395. With the added fuel savings, it's likely they can and will be able to increase the price even more. The only downside I am aware of of the hybrid model is the loss of the stow-n-go seats for the second row since that's where the batteries are. Where did you see an MSRP of $31,200? I am anxiously waiting for a price and have started bugging local dealers to keep me updated when they find out more info on the plug-in hybrid model. There was one article I saw that said the hybrid should arrive in dealerships by November. I am hoping it's sooner than that.

I'm skeptical too, but wouldn't that be cool?!

I sent along a request for HYBRID pricing verification with the author of the article. I will post what I receive.

I have to agree here. Never has a hybrid model been cheaper than its counterpart model. Ever.

I'd guess a minimum of 50K for the Limited. Even that sounds to low considering the tax rebate.

Here is article that has that lower end pricing - but it is based on the assumption that the hybrid will also come in with a low end trim option.

Here is a site that shows pictures of the hybrid - but not sure if you can tell which trim package from the pictures

I think that there will be quite a few features that are standard in the Limited that will not be standard in the Hybrid Limited. From what I have seen there will not be an 8th seat option in the hybrid...

You lose (at least some of) the stow and go seats to battery storage and there's no 8th seat option, probably also because of the battery system.

There's no way that $31k for the limited hybrid is correct. Absolutely no chance whatsoever. It's MSRP will definitely be > $43,000 and probably close to $50,000 or more.

Right now pricing is what I'm a bit concerned about. Even with the $7500 government rebate (which do they take that off the initial cost or how is that going to work?) and our trade-in, I fear this thing is going to cost as much as a house where I live and really impede our ability to get one. They want to market it to Millennial families, it needs to be priced accordingly. Especially since I just read yesterday that the sales of gas guzzling trucks and SUV's have skyrocketed this year because of the price of fuel being lower.

I got a tax rebate a few years ago when they were still giving them away for the new VW TDi diesel engines. It does not affect your purchase price at all. When you file your taxes the year following your purchase you will receive the $7,500 back then, from the government. It will be added into your normal tax return check/direct deposit.

Good information to know. Thanks for that. I had a hunch.

I really can't see this being under $40,000. Especially with the Limited being over 40 itself. Are they leaving features out of the Hybrid that will be in the Limited because otherwise the pricing these sites keep posting don't make any sense.

One thing I do know is the fact that Chrysler is staying so hush-hush about this is worrying. For me, I need to know whether this is going to be what we go with or not when we have our kid late this year so the timeline is ticking before we have to make a decision.

One thing to note if you look at the Pacifica brochure is that the Hybrid Limited is not equipped anywhere near what a regular limited is. Its standard features line up closer to a Touring-L. I would hope to see it close to 40K with the standard feature list being what it is. I really wish they would get off their rears and release this thing already. If it performs well I plan on purchasing one. I really hope that reviewers have already done their tests and are just under embargo.

I doubt we'll see 40K for the Limited Hybrid, but I'd really like to see the Touring Hybrid hit that price point (before tax incentives)! It would be a terrible shame to see the hybrid models priced out of the affordability range of most middle-class families, particularly in light of the $1.3 billion taxpayers ended up bearing from the 2009 bankruptcy.
