The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will provide 30 miles of electric driving and 530 miles of range when it arrives in early 2017 as the only plug-in hybrid minivan available in the U.S. market, Fiat-Chrysler (FCA) announced.

FCA provided full specifications and offered test drives for journalists of the vehicle on the first day of AutoMobility LA, the trade show that preceds the Los Angeles Auto Show, on Nov. 15.

The 2017 Pacifica Hybrid joins the gasoline-powered Pacifica introduced in the summer that will replace the Chrysler Town and Country.

The Pacifica Hybrid will retail for at least $41,995 and will be eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit, which brings its base price to $34,495 before state or local incentives. The price does not include a $1,095 destination fee. FCA will offer the vehicle in the Premium and Platinum trim grades.

The Pacifica Hybrid offers several notable differences from its gasoline-powered sibling, including send-row captain's chairs instead of bench seating to accommodate the hybrid powertrain as well as a different front grille and wheel styling.

The hybrid also includes technology features such as a smartphone app. The vehicle can can deliver relevant vehicle information, such as charge status and scheduling, charging station locations and an "efficiency coach" to improve vehicle efficiency.

It offers more than 100 standard and available safety and security features, including 360-degree Surround View camera, ParkSense parallel and perpendicular park assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Hold and Forward Collision Warning-Plus.
