WLTP | Hughes Group


The Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) laboratory test is used to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions from passenger cars and vans, as well as their pollutant emissions.

From September 1, 2017 more realistic tests were introduced to certify new vehicles against Euro 6 emission limits.

WLTP will apply to all new type approvals and from September 1, 2018 applying to all new car and van registrations.

The WLTP is based on real-driving data, designed to better match on-road performance.

WLTP will introduce much more realistic testing conditions e.g.longer test distances, variable speeds, optional equipment and the impact on C02 – this will ensure that lab measurements better reflect the on-road performance.


Post September 2018: all vehicle types recertified to NEDC 2.0.

September 2019: any unsold NEDC certified vehicles must be registered.

Post April 2020: anticipated taxation legislation change which may affect B.I.K. and VED.
