WLTP and your fleet

From 1 April 2020, a new way of testing passenger cars’ CO2 emissions and MPG performance will be introduced. The new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) replaces the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) procedure, which was established in the 1980s. With the switch to WLTP on 1 April 2020, new company cars registered on or after 6 April 2020 are expected to see an increase in the amount of BiK and Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) paid, as well as how Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is calculated. All electric cars, new and existing, will be subject to zero BiK. We are still awaiting confirmation of the full WLTP CO2 emissions data from all manufacturers, however, our current data analysis shows on average vehicle CO2 emissions will be increasing around 20% for Petrol and Diesel engines.
