Minivans make great dog cars. They have wide sliding side doors, large rear hatches, and low floors that are an easy jump for most dogs. They also have more cargo space than even the largest SUVs, so you can install multiple crates and still have room for passengers.

The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the best of the bunch, as its floor is almost completely flat. The anchors for its seats make excellent tie downs for crates and there is LATCH hardware at several seating positions to attach harnesses to.

You can travel up to 33 miles on electricity alone with the plug-in Pacifica Hybrid before the gasoline engine is required. When the battery charge is depleted, the Pacific Hybrid still gets an EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined, which is great for a minivan.

In our ranking of minivans, the Pacifica Hybrid holds a spot near the top. Depending on your tax situation, you may qualify for a federal EV tax credit when you purchase the plug-in hybrid minivan.

If you don’t want to make the investment in the Pacifica Hybrid, you should consider the non-hybrid Pacifica, which starts at $26,995. It’s available with fold-flat second- and third-row seats, which offer maximum flexibility for dogs and cargo.
