Can the complete electric portion of the of the hybrid Pacifica be turned off so you only drive on the gas engine and never charge the battery with gas of home plug in. With a major issue with the electric portion of the hybrid being rumored causing all undelivered hybrids being returned to the factory, this might be a prudent thing to do. If the issue is with the battery packs, there is lots of history (cars, planes, etc.) of lithium packs catching fire especially with a cell failure. If I had a hybrid instead of a gas only van that is what I would do until this whole quality issue is resolved.
