Common Misconceptions

Modern electrified vehicles perform just as well as traditional gas-powered vehicles where it counts, including speed, quickness, and torque. For example, the Chrysler Pacifica Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV) features an innovative dual-motor eFlite electrically variable transmission (EVT) offering
84 hp (63 kW) (Motor A) and 114 hp (85 kW) (Motor B).

Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) have the same limitations as conventional internal combustion engine vehicles when it comes to driving distance - the amount of fuel available. Having gas in the tank is required for both a gas-powered vehicle and a PHEV to function; however, the PHEV has an extra advantage - it can drive without using fuel as long as it has a sufficient battery charge.

At FCA Canada, we know a lot about Canadian winters, and our electrified vehicles are engineered to work in all kinds of weather conditions. Your Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has both an electric motor and a gas engine, so no matter what the temperature is, your vehicle will be able to drive. All of our electrified vehicles undergo rigorous testing to ensure the highest standards of safety and performance, so you can drive confidently every time you get behind the wheel.

Your electrified vehicle is engineered to drive safely in all driving conditions, including when it is raining. Just like the battery in a gas vehicle, electrified vehicle batteries are not adversely affected by rain in any way.

All FCA Canada vehicles, including our electrified vehicles, meet all Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. There is no cause for concern about the safety of driving a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) any more than driving a gas-powered vehicle. You should always exercise caution while driving and follow all driving laws, regulations, and safety practices, but the vehicle itself does not pose any additional danger to you.
