The Jaguar I-Pace has undergone rigorous testing in extreme terrains and temperatures at the Jaguar Land Rover cold weather test facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, at temperatures as low as -40°C (-104°F), with some potential customers invited to view the EV as it was being put through its paces.

Tony Westerlund, a potential customer from Sweden, had some interesting questions on how the car would fare in Arctic conditions, particularly in terms of its stability and traction on the ice and snow. To answer his queries, Jaguar engineers invited Westerlund to Arjeplog to drive the car for the first time and see how it is being tested to ensure performance in extreme conditions.

“Not only will the I-Pace charge quickly enough for our customers to carry out their everyday lives, it will offer powerful and precise performance in a variety of conditions and climactic extremes,” said Ian Hoban, Jaguar Vehicle line director.

The Jaguar I-Pace will debut at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 8, 2018.
