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.
