JAGUAR LAND ROVER OPENS TEST CENTER IN DUBAI

Greg Emmerson
May 13, 2013

With the need for both off-road testing and exposure to harsh desert conditions, as well as hot weather testing, Jaguar Land Rover has opened a new engineering test center in Dubai, UAE.

With summer temperatures in the desert typically reaching 120°F, the new 11,120 sqft facility in the Al Barsha area will be used to conduct extreme hot weather vehicle research, development and testing.

The engineering team will also test powertrains, chassis and ventilation systems, as well as the off-road and sand driving capability of Land Rover's Terrain Response system.

Jaguar Land Rover has a network of five global test facilities at the Nürburgring in Germany; Arjeplog in Sweden; Phoenix and International Falls in North America, and now Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The new facility is four times the size of a previous Dubai center, giving the team access to some unique and very challenging environmental conditions.
