The Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP)

There is a new European Union vehicle testing regime called the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (“WLTP”.)  This replaces the New European Driving Cycle (“NEDC”) test procedure for establishing the official fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures for new vehicles. The WLTP applies to all vehicle manufacturers.

The WLTP is a laboratory-based test but it seeks to provide more realistic testing conditions and a more accurate basis for assessing a vehicle model’s fuel consumption and emissions figures. The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association has a website at http://wltpfacts.eu which contains lots of useful information. Click into the lnk for more details..

This has had a affect on delivery times for most new cars, especially petrol variants as manufacturers are having to put their cars through testing and some are making technical adjustments.
