FCA to pilot auto-switch to electric mode for hybrids

Fiat Chrysler (FCA) said on Wednesday it will begin testing automatic switch to the electric-only mode for its hybrid plug-in vehicles.

The project, dubbed "Turin Geofencing Lab" comes as the carmaker is starting to produce alternative-engine models which will have integrated sensors that will allow the car to recognize when it's entering a restricted traffic zone.

The company cooperates on the project with the Turin authorities and public transport agency GTT.
