Jaguar Land Rover has put its I-Pace battery-electric SUV through testing in Arctic driving at minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit at its facility in Arjeplog, Sweden, the company has announced.

The company brought potential customer Tony Westerland to the facility to test the vehicle, after he raised questions about the vehicle's stability and traction on ice and snow.

While plugged into power, customers will be able to prepare the car’s battery and cabin temperature ahead of a journey without tapping into the battery’s range. Pre-conditioning the car ensures maximum range, performance and comfort whether temperatures are freezing cold or extremely hot. Setting up preferred charging times and pre-conditioning schedules can be done from either the on-board Jaguar InControl system or the Jaguar InControl Remote smartphone app, according to the company. 

Jaguar Land Rover will unveil the vehicle on March 1 and bring it to the Geneva Motor Show on March 6. It will go on sale later this year.
