Common sense look at the insanity of owning a Tesla – for anything other than owning a toy.
I still think the Pacifica Hybrid is the only practical version of PHEV out there.
Most people know the cost of driving a car that runs on regular gasoline. You take the price of the fuel per gallon, and divide it by the Miles Per Gallon (MPG) number that your car yields. The resulting number is the “cost per mile” in variable fuel cost terms.

There’s so much wrong with this it’s hard to know where to start. First congrats on your purchase, you won’t be disappointed!
That seeking alpha article you linked to though is nonsense put out by a short selling tool trying to get the stock to drop so he can make money. I won’t go through every point that is wrong with that article because it would be a lot to cover and I doubt anyone would want to read it on here, also Ben Sullins covers it very well in this video if you’re interested:
I’m watching the Pacifica forums, and so far, lots of FORD stories (found on road dead).
I’ve tried two dealers, and neither even has one to test drive. Once I even called ahead, showed up, and found out the one vehicle was sold and I couldn’t test it.
Chrysler is bombing all around on this one, and it’s already May.
Great review. The van will only do well in Ontario due to subsidies. That’s fine, if you are ok with your government keeping 6000+ Windsor autoworkers employed. I am.

You get green plates in Ontario worth car pool lane bucks too ($80/month). Feel good keeping your fellow Ontarians working and your tax dollar grant warm!
I hope it sells well here.
I always liked Jim. Here’s his take on the Pacifica.
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid not only might be the best all-round hybrid you can buy; it might also help resurrect the minivan segment.
