Jaguar tested its new SUV in ungodly conditions, so you don’t have to
Jaguar has announced its new performance SUV is designed to withstand the world’s most extreme conditions.
The E-PACE SUV, which will be fully revealed later this month, withstood temperatures of -40°C and +48°C, from the Arctic Circle to Dubai, during an extensive 120,000 testing regime involving 500 engineers.
The 25-month test program took place across four continents. It included driving 5,000 feet above sea level and taking more than 400 laps of the Nürburgring.
The firm said the tests, which also involved 125 prototypes, will ensure “E-PACE can withstand a lifetime of use in the hands of the most active and demanding customers.”
