The Sustainable Lightness of Plastic

Plastics are known for being light and malleable, but they can also be incredibly robust, sustainable and intelligent. It all depends on their composition.
At FCA’s Global Materials Labs, researchers are continuously studying new formulas for plastics that will improve the safety, performance, look and comfort of our cars… and are also eco-compatible.
​Simply put, they are creating the recipes that will be used to make the cars of the future.

Innovating with Materials

Researchers at FCA’s Global Materials Labs study ways to give new properties and applications to existing materials. New materials are created and tested in the lab and the performance characteristics of existing materials are enhanced.
​Intelligent plastics and resins that are conductive, surfaces that are dust resistant, non-shiny or even that repair themselves… the cars of the future are already here!
