- Battery ServiceIt is pretty complex, but we'll try to simplify it for you. The Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid utilizes two electric drive motors, a planetary gear set and a one-way clutch internal to its transmission. Each electric drive motor has a primary function. One motor is used for charging the high-voltage battery and starting the gas engine while the other is used solely for electric drive operation. The Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid is unique in that given the one-way clutch, the charging/starting motor can also be used in dual motor electric drive. This additional functionality maximizes efficiency and also allows for optimum all-electric drive vehicle speed. The V6 engine is seamlessly integrated into the powertrain and contributes toward high-voltage battery charging or vehicle propulsion automatically based on driving conditions. Both motors are constantly working to best integrate electric power versus gas (until charge is depleted) or vice versa. The system is consistently monitoring to provide you with maximum fuel efficiency.
