The Jaguar E-Pace is ready to present itself to the world on 13 July 2017, so Jaguar started revealing bits of the gruelling tests it went through during the development phase.

After some 150 prototypes and 25 months of testing and with over 500 engineers involved, the E-Pace is ready to withstand a lifetime of abuse from its most demanding and active customers. From the sub-zero Artic Circle to the scorching Dubai, the E-Pace has seen and conquered it all. Jaguar engineers have put the E-Pace to temperatures as high as 48°C to as low as -40°C and it didn’t even break a sweat.

Other tests include a 500 mm submersion, a 5,000 feet hike above sea level and went flat out around Walter’s Arena, a famous rally stage in the UK. Not forgetting that the E-Pace was intended to be a “dynamic and entertaining performance SUV”, the team put it round the Nürburgring Nordschleife more than 400 times to ensure that the E-Pace is worthy of the Jaguar badge.

While we wait with bated breath for its global unveiling, catch the E-Pace in action in the video below!
