Abstract:
Electrified powertrains will play a growing role in meeting global fuel consumption and CO2 requirements. In support of this, FCA has developed its first dedicated hybrid transmission (the eFlite), used in the Chrysler Pacifica PHEV. The Chrysler Pacifica is the industry’s first electrified minivan. The new eFlite hybrid transmission architecture optimizes performance, fuel economy, mass, packaging and NVH. The transmission is an electrically variable FWD transaxle with an input split configuration and incorporates two electric motors, both capable of driving in EV mode. The lubrication and cooling system makes use of two pumps, one electrically operated and one mechanically driven. The Chrysler Pacifica has a 16kWh lithium ion battery and a 3.6-liter Pentastar engine which offers total system power of 260 hp with 84 MPGe, 33 miles of all electric range and 566 miles total driving range.
