The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) has launched a new website – WLTPfacts.eu – to explain the benefits of the new WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure), to examine the impact of the WLTP on the consumer, and to present policy recommendations for its proper implementation.
From September 2017, WLTP will officially apply to all new vehicles introduced on the market. One year later, from September 2018, WLTP will apply to all new car registrations in the EU.
Through a series of educational infographics, WLTPfacts.eu answers the most common questions about the WLTP in a clear and simple way. In addition to setting out the benefits of WLTP, providing a transition timeline and explaining the differences between the new test and the old NEDC procedure, the website also addresses pressing consumer concerns related to vehicle taxation and fuel consumption.
