It is the Range Rover Sport that first benefits from these various devices including an Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) laboratory and two anechoic chambers: “silent” electric road. allowing engineers to test high-speed vehicles, and equipment to evaluate the individual performance of components, such as batteries or electric motors.
For example, services and features such as Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, 4 and 5G, adaptive cruise control, wireless charging and passive location tracking will all be tested for EMC through the facility. mention the brand. Note that despite the limited success of the i-Pace, the forerunner of electric SUVs, Jaguar Land Rover has released hybrids only recently and it is bearing the brunt of the automotive problem.
Let’s hope that this investment allows this flagship brand to quickly compete with the Americans, which already offers a number of 100% electric 4×4 models with advanced electronics –such as Rivian, F-150 Electric, Tesla Cybertruck or Hummer EV.
