What is WLTP?

Are the WLTP rules too confusing? In this article we explore how they can actually benefit you!
We know how the story goes - you buy a car that has an official fuel consumption figure of 65.6mpg, but find yourself managing just 52.1mpg all the time. It’s a drag and you’re paying out more than you expected. What gives?Measuring these figures can’t be easy for the testers involved, but it’s hoped that it’s just about to get a whole lot easier.For more than thirty years, the New Driving Cycle (NEDC) has been used to carrying out fuel economy and European new car emissions tests. As of September 2017, however, a new test has replaced the dated NEDC. It’s called the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test (WLTP).In case you were wondering what it’s all about and what it will mean for you as a driver and car owner, OSV has got you covered with our article all about the WLTP.
