Vehicle Testing (WLTP)

The Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) – the new fuel consumption and emissions testing scheme being adopted in the European Union to replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) – will be used for tax purposes from April 2020. However, an unintended tax increase has arisen from the transition to WLTP owing to the new testing procedure which produces higher CO₂ emissions figures.
