We develop sustainable mobility

​​​​Responding to the customer's mobility needs through ever more sustainable solutions is one of the auto industry’s most complex challenges.

To offer sustainable solutions to a broad customer base, we are committed to reduce the environmental impact of our vehicles over their entire life cycle, while responding to consumer demands in each market where we do business.

We work toward this commitment while recognizing and accommodating the different economic, geographic and fuel requirements of each market.

In 2016, FCA started production of the new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, the industry's first electrified minivan.

 

It earned a fuel economy rating of 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe), from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and is expected to provide an estimated range of 33 miles solely on zero-emissions electric power

An all-electric concept vehicle, the Chrysler Portal, was unveiled in early 2017 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (U.S.). The Chrysler Portal Concept is a forward-thinking interpretation of a next generation of family transportation, focused toward the millennial generation.

Since 1997, the Group has sold more than 720,000 natural gas-powered cars and commercial vehicles. In 2016, FCA was confirmed among European leaders, with more than 31,000 natural gas vehicles registered, representing a share of about 45%. In 2017, the production of the 300,000th natural gas-powered Fiat Panda marked an important milestone in helping protect the planet through avoidance of roughly one million tons of CO2 emissions

In Brazil more than 329,000 Flexfuel and TetraFuel vehicles were registered in 2016, accounting for approximately 90% of vehicles licensed by the Group in this market. FCA participates in the government’s INMETRO vehicle fuel consumption monitoring program (PBEV - Brazilian Labeling Program Vehicle). For PBEV 2016, 113 Fiat vehicles were involved.

As driver expectations change and mobility scenarios evolve, FCA devotes resources to research, development and experimentation of innovative technologies, including a growing number of connectivity and mobility solutions and autonomous vehicle technology.

We are dedicated to develop sustainable solutions and mobility innovations through our research and development centers throughout the world.

The Group’s research and innovation activities involve approximately 20,600 individuals at 87 locations worldwide. In the EMEA region, Product Development departments located in Turin and Modena (Italy) are the primary R&D facilities. In the NAFTA region, research and development activities are primarily carried out at the Chrysler World Headquarters and Technology Center in Auburn Hills (U.S.), and the Automotive Research and Development Centre in Windsor (Canada).

Vehicles today are more flexible and customized than ever before, and are designed for both city and country driving. Looking toward the future of mobility and the potential response to a changing market environment, FCA has launched various initiatives that illustrate the Group’s commitment to meeting these new challenges.

Enjoy is a car-sharing service that offers a fleet of high efficiency vehicles to urban drivers. It was launched in Milan (Italy) by ENI at the end of 2013, in partnership with FCA which has provided more than 2,100 vehicles.

Our vehicles may also be made more environmentally sustainable by getting customers involved and improving their driving behavior.

Eco:Drive is an FCA software system that offers personalized tips on driving styles with the objective of contributing to a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions. By the end of 2016, more than 111,800 customers in Europe had used the eco:Drive software.

The new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid offers an “efficiency coach” - a display that guides owners to drive more efficiently and maximize the time spent in battery mode. It also directs the driver on how to optimize energy consumption while accelerating, and provides guidance on braking to take full advantage of the regenerative braking that contributes to charging the battery.
