Cool too cold for discovery 3?

I had to call emergency service twice as my Discovery 3 (diesel) did not start.
I put in special diesel in the mountains and an additive for low temperatures.
Note, it was at night "only -16 degrees C" and during the day around freezing point.
In the afternoon the car started after trying several times but not in the morning.
I never had this problem and the truck started without problems in other years at lower temperatures. the battery was switched 2 years ago and the car winter serviced 2 weeks ago.
this problem ruined my winter holiday.

I am considering to get a less electronic truck such a Defender (which i used to have before).
any ideas and thoughts
