text size: A- A+
The new facility is located in the Al Barsha area of Dubai, UAE, and will not only be used for hot weather testing. Chassis durability and calibration will also be examined, all in one of the hottest environment known to man. Heaters and ventilation systems will be pushed to extremes, and Land Rover's reputation as the off-road king will be put agains the endless dunes of sand.
“Jaguar Land Rover has ambitious plans for growth, and since 2008 we have been investing to enhance our engineering capability to help us deliver an unprecedented number of new and refreshed Jaguar and Land Rover models,” said Jaguar Land Rover Director of Engineering Technical Services Martyn Hollingsworth.
“We are delighted at the expansion of Jaguar Land Rover’s test facilities in the Middle East. Dubai offers some unique and very challenging environmental conditions, so if a vehicle passes our tests here we know it will perform in any hot weather environment. The new facility will be crucial to the company’s continued success as every model for the European and MENA markets will be certified here in Dubai following thorough testing before going into global production," Robin Colgan, Managing Director Jaguar Land Rover MENA (Middle East and North Africa) continued.
