It’s safe to say that designing a car is no easy feat. Modern vehicles are built with more electrical and mechanical features than the average consumer will ever know, and Chrysler in particular is always experimenting with innovative new features. But now, thanks to a partnership with Chrysler and Google Maps, gearheads and automobile amateurs alike will have the chance to get an up-close-and-personal look at the processes and machinery involved in the construction of a quality new car. Using the Maps functionality, users can take a virtual tour of the factory assembling the praiseworthy new 2015 Chrysler 200, soon to be sold at our Chrysler dealership near Winslow, ME. And the best part? They don’t even have to go outside to do it!
Chrysler and Google Maps joined forces to create the tour of Chrysler’s Michigan factory, which is powered by Google Maps and includes video clips, a navigation tool and informative short films. By navigating to www.chrysler200factory.com you can take the tour, which begins with a 30-second film introducing you to the virtual tour guide. Once that’s complete, you can follow the path of the tour, pausing in some places to watch videos and interact with exhibits. You’ll get a unique view of the new Chrysler 200, clicking and dragging the screen to see it from all angles and explore the factory at your own pace. Even the short films can be controlled, making you feel like a director of sorts. Don’t miss the fascinating video of factory robots building the 200 all around you as you pivot around the frame!
“Just as we pioneered a completely new Chrysler 200, we are pioneering a new way for consumers to research a vehicle,” said Olivier Francois, Chrysler chief marketing officer. “The Factory Tour is an opportunity for us to prove to consumers that the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 is not one ever built before.”
There are many moving parts inside the advanced cars of this day and age, and it seems there’s a solution for every possible need just a button’s touch away. We recommend you take this cool tour to get a better understanding of the science and manpower it took to build that Chrysler sitting outside your house. Getting an insider’s look at the factory and the complex machinery within is really a treat, and it’s fun to realize you can do it all while still in your pajamas! When you’ve completed the tour, leave us a comment to let us know what you thought about it!
