Worldwide Autonomy Programme
Launched in 1994 and based in Italy, this special project aims to develop equipment that can be fitted into cars to enable easier access, and greater comfort and independence for physically disabled drivers and passengers. Throughout the programme, FCA has designed devices for both private and light commercial vehicles, such as anatomic cushions, revolving and sliding seats, and special fittings for wheelchairs.
For example, the new Dobló and some of our larger commercial vehicles can be adapted to house a wheelchair behind the front seats. FCA offers three options for customers with disabilities: our own in-house programme Autonomy Choices, the Motability scheme, and wheelchair accessible vehicles.
