To celebrate this important production milestone, the Jeep brand is now opening the virtual doors of the Melfi factory in Basilicata where the first FCA model to be manufactured in collaboration between Italy and the USA is assembled. By searching for “SATA - Società Automobilistica Tecnologie Avanzate S.p.A. - FCA Italy” or just “FCA SATA Melfi” on Google Maps, visitors can explore the entire production cycle of one of the most advanced automotive plants, where almost 8,000 employees and 968 robots produce the Jeep Renegade and FIAT 500X to a silver medal certification standard, according to WCM (World Class Manufacturing), an international methodology for optimizing the manufacturing cycle.

Making the experience as immersive as possible, a total of 3,924 pictures were taken over the course of three days. Stitched together using a special algorithm, which creates an immersive 360° horizontal and 290° vertical environment, these images are used to offer 327 different panoramic viewpoints, each of which consists of 12 HD photos.

Users thus have the possibility of "moving" inside the plant and exploring the details that interest them – with the same intuitive dynamic offered by Google Street View – as they travel through the factory's four productive units: stamping, body-in-white, painting and assembly. They also have the option of in-depth investigation of certain processes via seven 30-second video clips.
