The new Co2 emission testing cycle
Updated in March 2019
On 1 September 2018 a new system to test the Co2 emission for cars became effective. Given the Co2 value drives so many aspects of managing company cars, the new Co2 values will certainly impact each organisation.
> Update on the impact of WLTP: NEDC CO2 can be used <
The system steps away from the NEDC testing cycle applied till now. The more static NEDC testing cycle was replaced by the new WLTP testing cycle, which is a more dynamic and realistic method to determine effective Co2 emissions. The shift includes adding real life environment testing to the current Labo-environment only testing.
The new WLTP test cycle will take more factors into account and will therefore result in a more differentiated Co2 value within same car, model and motorisation, which was not the case today.
