WLTP DRIVING CYCLE
We will be sharing new fuel consumption figures based on the new European fuel consumption test, the WLTP driving cycle (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure). By testing cars with extra optional equipment and across a greater range of driving profiles, we can give you fuel consumption figures that are a closer representation of real-world driving behaviour than the current fuel consumption test, the NEDC.
What does it mean for you?
The new WLTP driving cycle takes into account the situations that you see every day. So if you need to estimate your daily consumption, you’ve got a much more accurate method than the current NEDC standard.

||20°C - 30°C
|Stationary time proportion||13%||25%|
|Cycle length||ca. 23km||ca. 11km|
|Influence of optional equipment and air-conditioning (AC)||Optional equipment is taken into account for weight, aerodynamics and VES (Vehicle Electronics Systems) requirements (no-load current). No AC||Not considered at present|
What is the Driving Cycle?
The WLTP driving cycle is made up of several phases, which are based on the everyday driving profiles of motorists from around the world.
