Chrysler, Kango Announce Kid Ride-Sharing Partnership

“Kango is excited to partner with Chrysler to make its new Pacifica Hybrid minivans available to our eligible drivers,” Sara Schaer, Kango’s CEO, said in a statement. “In addition to being a green vehicle with the best mileage of any minivan, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will help us meet the growing demand for shared carpool rides for groups of kids going places. Drivers save money on gas. Kids are delighted with the minivan’s kid-friendly features. It’s a win for everyone.”

Kango will deploy its fleet of Pacifica Hybrids this fall, but only in California. Right now, Kango only operates in six counties in the San Francisco Bay Area, though it plans to expand.
