Jaguar Land Rover announced the opening of a new engineering test centre in Dubai. The company has set up a 11,120 sq. ft. facility in the Al Barsha area of Dubai which will offer a range of tests including durability, calibration and hot weather testing for heat and humidity.
The Jaguar Land Rover engineering team at the new centre, which replaces a smaller facility in Dubai, will also be responsible for testing powertrains, chassis, heat and ventilation systems as well as the off-road and sand driving capability of Land Rover’s Terrain Response system.
Jaguar Land Rover Director of Engineering Technical Services Martyn Hollingsworth said: “Our new facility in Dubai is four times the size of the previous test centre and will enable us to enhance our testing of future products and technologies. The engineering team is focused on the quality and durability of our products and an important part of this is rigorous environmental testing of our vehicles to ensure they can withstand even the harshest conditions.”
Jaguar Land Rover now has network of four global test facilities which include Nurburgring, Germany, Arjeplog, Sweden, Phoenix and International Falls, USA, and Dubai, UAE.
