When will the WLTP changes take place?

The change to WLTP will happen in 3 steps.

Step 1 - September 2017 - WLTP began offcially applying to new types of cars in September 2017. New types of cars are vehicle models that are introduced on the market for the first time.

Step 2 -  September 2018 - WLTP will apply to all new registrations from September this year.

This means that all new cars must be certificed according to the WLTP test procedure and no longer NEDC. There may be exceptions made for end-of-series vehicles to allow for a limited number of unsold vehicles (in stock and approved under the old NEDC test) to be sold for one more year.

Step 3 - September 2019 - This marks the final date that those aforementioned unsold vehicles can be sold.

From January 1st 2019

All cars in dealerships should have WLTP-CO2 values - this is to avoid confusion among consumers, in the view of the automobile industry.

National goverments should adjust vehicle taxation and fiscal incentives to WLTP values - this will show respect for the principle that WLTP should not have a negative impact on consumers.

During 2020

At this stage, the European Commission will convert today's (NEDC-based) CO2 targets to specific WLTP-CO2 targets of comparable stringency. These new WLTP targets will apply for monitoring car fleet compliance.
