Mercedes-Benz EQV concludes Arctic testing
In temperatures as low as -20degC, the testers drove over lakes and roads normal for that region, and in measured the effects of extreme cold on the handling, ergonomics, and comfort.
The testing was augmented by 'cold cell' facilities checking of how the drive components worked, and investigated the thermomanagment of the complete vehicle.
The conclusion of the engineers was that the EQV, due for market launch in the second half of this year, performed 'very well'.
