Kolkata, May 13 (IANS) Tata Motors’ British luxury car unit Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Monday opened a new engineering test centre in Dubai to conduct extreme hot weather vehicle research, testing and development.
With temperatures in the desert typically reaching 48 to 50 degrees Celsius in the summer months, the new 11,120 sq. ft. facility in the Al Barsha area of Dubai will offer a comprehensive range of tests including durability, calibration and hot weather testing for heat and humidity, a company release said here.
The engineering team at the new centre will also test powertrains, chassis and heat and ventilation systems, it said.
JLR 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.”
