Moose test revealed an unexpected defect Jaguar I-PaceOctober 15, 2019
When driving around an obstacle, the front wheel locks
A video was posted on the Web how the Jaguar I-Pace electric crossover passes the moose test, during which the car was found to have problems with wheel lock during a sharp detour of obstacles.
The test, in which the car has to be sharply tuned at high speed to avoid an obstacle, is considered one of the most difficult. It is the “moose test”, as a rule, that reveals the greatest number of shortcomings, and this time they were found at the I-Pace electric crossover.
During the passage of the track, the car hit the cones at any speed from 70 to 80 kilometers per hour, and in one attempt, the front wheel was blocked at the crossover. And if hard-going rearrangements can be attributed to the features of the system of directional stability, then it should not have anything to do with locking the wheel.
Recently, a similar test tried to pass the Toyota RAV4 crossover. The first attempt was unsuccessful for the car – already at 68 kilometers per hour the car began to slide and stand on two external wheels. After that, he was sent for a “retake”, which he dealt with at a more decent level: journalists managed to disperse the RAV4 to 76 kilometers per hour.
