F CA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) is not at the forefront in the race for electromobility, electrified models or pure electric cars are missing, with a few exceptions, in the model range of the group brands Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Maserati and RAM. Due to tight budgets, the company management is likely to join forces with an industrial partner.

In contrast, when it comes to autonomous driving, FCA is a big step ahead of some other companies. The Google sister company Waymo Chrysler Pacifica has been using hybrid vans for use in the USA for some time. Waymo has even ordered 62,000 more cars from FCA. The supply contract for the fleet provides furthermore that Waymo makes its technology for autonomous driving for FCA accessible so that you can develop on this basis also own models

Mike Manley, the new FCA Chief Executive Officer and successor to the late Sergio Marchionne, said: “The new facility at the Chelsea Proving Grounds will help successfully implement the company's five-year plan set up earlier this year . With our ability to test autonomous and advanced safety technologies, we can offer our customers the functions they want across our entire brand portfolio. ”

The new test center is not just for testing fully autonomous Level 5 cars. FCA wants to test all levels of autonomous driving here. The development of systems such as a motorway assistant, which is already available in various models from other manufacturers, should also be accelerated with the new options.
