FCA What’s Behind: behind the scenes of research and development
Delivering the high standards of quality, safety, reliability and comfort that characterise every FCA Group vehicle requires an incessant job that is often done behind the scenes: FCA What’s Behind is the video project that reveals its details
Getting behind the wheel of your own FCA Group car has become part of everyday life. Starting the engine and setting off is a comfortable automatic gesture behind which, however, lies complex and detailed work involving hundreds of people around the world. Developing a car requires engineers and technicians to guarantee quality, safety, reliability and comfort in all conditions.
The FCA What’s Behind project describes for the first time the many activities that contribute to the development and quality checks carried out on cars. This unprecedented documentary series expands the geographical and thematic horizons of enthusiasts, professionals and motorists. The episodes range from the Arjeplog glaciers to South African deserts, where the products are tested under the most extreme conditions, including FCA centres of excellence like the Balocco Proving Ground (Vercelli), the Orbassano Safety Centre (Turin) and the Turin Research Centre.
Emblematic places and global benchmarks for research and development include testing centres, circuits, plants and offices – and all are working to deliver the total quality expressed, for example, in driving pleasure, aerodynamics, emission and fuel consumption reduction, and the most appropriate drive systems.
Therefore, for the first time ever, FCA has taken cameras “behind the scenes” for an exceptional and exciting report.
