Maybe a battery pack under the minivan floor can insulate some life to that dying market segment

Re: 2017 Plug-In/BEV Minivan?

I hope it's PHEV.
An electric minivan would be kind of useless, if you think of minivans as a great traveling vehicle.

=======================

Every sub-$50,000 car on the market will have to answer to the Ford from now on, no matter what badge it brings to the table.

This is what I was hoping we would be seeing by now about the Flex or Edge or Explorer or MKX...

Re: 2017 Plug-In/BEV Minivan?

Everything I have read said it will be PHEV. It will use a hybrid combo of the Gen 2 Pentastar V6 (variable intake, GDI) with the 9-speed and an electric motor likely sandwiched between.

Hyundia and Kia both use the regular auto
