Chrysler introducing 1st-ever plug-in hybrid minivan

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Chrysler is making history by introducing the first-ever plug-in hybrid minivan.

The 2017 Pacifica Hybrid has a gasoline engine like the regular Pacifica, but can travel about 30 miles on battery power alone. For many families, that means a day's worth of driving - carpools, shopping, etc. - can be done without using a drop of gasoline. For longer trips, it drives just like a regular vehicle.

Pricing will be announced next week, but Chrysler says the final cost to buyers will be "surprisingly low."

The L.A. Auto Show opens to the public on Nov. 18. For more information, visit
