Jaguar F-Pace successfully completes extreme weather testing

Jaguar has successfully completed testing on the F-PACE crossover SUV, which will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Described by Jaguar Land Rover as one of the most demanding it's ever devised, F-PACE demonstrated high levels of durability at extremes of hot and cold. Tested first at a purpose-built facility in Arjeplog, northern Sweden, where temperatures plummet as low as -40 degrees Celsius, the SUV experienced high octane handling including tracks, mountain ascents, steep inclines, straights with differing levels of surface friction and off-road areas.

By contrast testing in Dubai was performed in temperatures in excess of 50°C in the shade. When vehicles are left in direct sunlight, cabin temperatures can reach 70°C, which means that Jaguar Engineers were able to successfully gauge performance levels of climate control systems and infotainment touchscreens to the test in extremes of heat and humidity.

Andrew Whyman, the vehicle programme director for the F-Pace, said: “We developed the F-Pace to offer the ride, handling and refinement demanded from a Jaguar, together with exceptional levels of ability and composure on all surfaces and in all weathers."

“Just as we paid obsessive attention to detail over the engineering of every single component, we've exhaustively tested the F-Pace in the most challenging conditions to ensure that it will exceed the expectations of our customers around the world."

Has this Jaguar programme set a new standard in vehicle testing? This uniquely challenging environment, and the attention to detail, has significantly raised the bar.
