About Chrysler Town and Country Van
In Windsor, Ontario, Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans featuring Stow ‘n Go and Swivel ‘n Go seats are constructed.
The Town & Country was constructed by two plants: Saint Louis Assembly from 1989 to 2001 and Windsor from 2001 to the present. Windsor Assembly will take over as principal producer of the RT in May 2006, but will not fully take over until 2009, when they phase out present Pacifica production (CS). In October 2008, the Saint Louis Assembly minivan factory was closed, leaving Windsor as the sole manufacturer of the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan.
Beginning with the 2006 model year, China Motor Corporation built Town & Country minivans for the Taiwanese market in Yangmei, Taiwan under license. They are based on the Chrysler Grand Voyager 3.3L engine sold in Europe, with minor modifications for the local market, such as LED taillights and backup cameras. In 2007, production ceased, and the line was transferred to China, where Southeast continued to construct the vehicle under the Chrysler Grand Voyager and Dodge Grand Caravan names until late 2010.
Chrysler Voyager/Grand Voyager automobiles were built in Austria from 1991 to 2007 and were sold out in Europe and a number of other global markets. Since 2008, Ontario has also developed the European-Version, albeit diesel engines are still available and the trim is different. The cars resemble the North American Town & Country Model from the outside, but are marketed as the Chrysler Grand Voyager.
The Town & Country is also available in Mexico, Venezuela, and, beginning in 2011, Brazil, where it was formerly sold under the Chrysler Caravan brand.
Chrysler introduced a plug-in hybrid version of the Town & Country in September 2008, along with a similarly engineered four-door Jeep Wrangler and an all-electric sports vehicle. The Town & Country prototype had a range of 40 miles (64 kilometers) on electric power alone. However, in November 2009, Fiat SpA announced the closure of Chrysler’s ENVI electric vehicle division and announced that these cars will be withdrawn from future development plans.
In April 2012, a two-year demonstration program with 25 flexible-fuel plug-in minivans began. Auburn Hills, Michigan and Charlotte, North Carolina received the first Town and Country. The demonstration project, which costs US$26 million, is partially funded by a US$10 million grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE). The plug-in hybrid minivans are powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar engine that runs on E85 and is linked to a front-wheel-drive system with a two-mode hybrid transmission. The plug-in hybrid is powered by a 12.1 KWh liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery that generates a combined 290 horsepower. The vehicle’s total range is 700 miles (1,100 km).
In late 2016, Chrysler introduced a plug-in hybrid version of their next-generation minivan in the United States.
