The FCA Automotive Research and Development Centre (ARDC) at the University of Windsor in Canada has celebrated its 20th anniversary. To mark this occasion, the Ontario government announced that it will provide FCA Canada with up to C$85.8m in funding to support enhanced research at the ARDC; advanced training for the workforce at the Windsor Assembly Plant; and technology enhancements related to the production of the all-new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.
In cooperation with leading universities in Ontario, such as McMaster, Waterloo and Windsor, the ARDC conducts research into advance powertrains and light-weighting technologies. The facility is fully equipped with facilities for extreme weather testing, corrosion control and precision night-time headlight testing.
