Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Design Studio Decides To Help KidsJune 20, 2020
The Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles arranged a sale of sketches of their cars. The proceeds will help destitute Italian children affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The coronavirus pandemic continues to ramp up in many parts of the world. At the time of writing, 8.63 million cases of COVID-19 have been reported worldwide, resulting in nearly half a million deaths. Italy was one of the first countries to be severely affected by the coronavirus.
Even worse, the adverse effects of the pandemic will continue to be felt, especially by children. Because of the forced quarantine measures, children have to drastically change their habits, including stopping going to school and stop visiting other public places that are very important for child psychology.
The Italian-American concern FCA and Save the Children, an international organization that works to protect the future of children from major risk groups, decided to join together to find a way together to help children in this difficult period.
To contribute, FCA Design Studio sells 136 copies of the most iconic designs from each brand in the FCA group (Fiat, Jeep, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Abarth and Fiat Professional). Among them there are sketches of the electric performance of the urban kid Fiat 500, the sports sedan Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, Lancia Delta Integrale, the daring little car Abarth 595 and the legendary military SUV Jeep Willys.
“Car design is a way to express the emotions of everyone who sees and appreciates it,” said Klaus Busse, head of FCA Centro Stile. “That’s why design is so resonant among children and youth. For us, the designers who made the sketch of the future car, the process of creating a sketch becomes a powerful means of communication with people. “
For only 20 euros per sketch, you can contribute to a charity event. The proceeds from sales will be used to purchase educational materials, as well as to finance the education of thousands of children in Italy.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the FCA recalls approximately 67,000 Jeep Cherokee. FCA on Thursday, June 18, announced a global recall of 67,248 copies of the Jeep Cherokee. Models that were released between April 14, 2014 and October 10, 2016 are being withdrawn.
