Jaguar Cars moves testing site to Thompson, Manitoba

BRAMALEA, ON, July 31 /CNW/ - After twenty years of operation in the city of Timmins, Jaguar Cars will be moving its cold weather testing site to join the Ford family in Thompson, Manitoba starting the winter of 2003/2004. Ford Motor Company has been conducting cold weather testing in the Thompson region since the mid 1980's. The site, located on the grounds of the Thompson Airport, was chosen for its predictable extreme cold temperatures and airport accessibility.

Volvo Cars and Land Rover have already adopted the Thompson site for their extreme cold weather testing.

"We are pleased that Jaguar is moving their test site to join us in Thompson," said Robert Mull, Director, Vehicle Evaluation and Verification, Ford Motor Company. "The consolidation of these brands under one roof will provide operational and cost efficiencies, and will allow the brands to share best practices."

Jaguar Cars will also join Volvo cars in Kiruna, Sweden to conduct additional testing starting the winter of 2003/2004.
