FCA What’s Behind: international previews of the first two episodes far north and far south
Yesterday saw the international presentation of the FCA What's Behind project: showing for the first time "a backstage view" of the research and development phases of FCA automobiles.
For the first time, FCA opens the doors of its operative centres around the world. Launched the first two episodes: from minus 40°C in Sweden to heat testing in South Africa, FCA is seen testing its latest models in extreme conditions. Places and settings constitute the first theme sections of the FCA What's Behind series: the iceworld of northern Sweden and the deserts of South Africa provide the subject for the first two episodes of this docuseries, while subsequent monthly episodes will offer visits to other FCA centres of excellence such as the Proving Ground of Balocco (Province of Vercelli), the Safety Centre and the research centre "Centro Ricerche Fiat" of Orbassano (Province of Turin).
Once it has explored the places where the history and future of the FCA Group is written every day, What's Behind will explore more specific topics including engine efficiency, technology, attention to detail, comfort and driving pleasure, plus aerodynamics and traction modes.
The FCA What's Behind will highlight the places, people and technical aspects involved: opens the doors of the Group to reveal the vast amount of work and expertise that goes into developing each model.
