Winter vehicle endurance tests are an important area of our business, helping car manufacturers to analyze the behavior and characteristics of their vehicles in cold climate conditions. Icemakers have great experience in coordinating both short-term and long-term projects of this nature and can help find the best solutions for our customer’s requirements.
Endurance tests are vital for the automobile industry to evaluate the durability and performance of cars in demanding conditions. Car endurance tests simulate real-world usage, putting the cars through rigorous testing to identify weaknesses. The testing involves driving over extended periods of time, covering substantial distances, and exposing it to various challenging road conditions, altitudes, temperatures, and weather scenarios.
Endurance tests in the automobile industry allow manufacturers to ensure that their cars meet industry standards and customer expectations by validating their quality, endurance, safety, and functionality. By conducting thorough and repetitive tests, manufacturers can identify areas for improvement to implement the necessary modifications and enhance the overall reliability and durability of their cars.
Icemakers can take responsibility for recruiting test drivers with extensive experience of car endurance testing. We also handle the scheduling and other personnel-related administration.
Car endurance test projects are usually carried out on public roads, in order to accumulate mileage on the test vehicles and evaluate their overall performance, or the performance of specific components or systems. The vast public road network in the Winter Test Region offers a wide selection of testing environments, ranging from city traffic to remote and winding mountain roads. Depending on the specifications outlined by the customer, Icemakers can assist in finding suitable routes for any car endurance test project.
Icemakers can take care of coordinating your project, working as a central connection point between you and other parties involved in the project, such as local suppliers of goods and services needed for the car testing process.
Icemakers can help you with the administration required before, during, and after the project. Logistics, customs handling, temporary Swedish registration of test vehicles and processing of third-party invoices are just a few examples of administrative duties we can assist you with.
