Introducing the WLTP

Introducing WLTP

Fleets have another acronym to learn: WLTP, or the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure. This is the new testing regime to measure both the fuel consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of new cars. It was introduced for new models on 1st September 2017. It will apply to all new cars sold from 1 September 2018, replacing the old New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).

What does it mean for you?

WLTP is designed to be more accurate than the NEDC – meaning that its figures will be more representative of how cars actually perform on the road. This has very real effects for fleets and their drivers. For example, it could change the amount that you have to pay for taxes linked to CO2 emissions, such as Company Car Tax and Vehicle Excise Duty. There will be other effects too.
