From September 2018, all cars must have been homologated under the new WLTP test cycle (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure) which is designed to better replicate real life driving conditions. Among the changes this involves redefined, significantly stricter test conditions and higher speeds together with a substantially longer test duration (30 instead of 20 minutes).
BMW Group has now published revised fuel economy and emissions data for its entire range of vehicles in accordance with the new test procedure (WLTP). This means the full range of BMW and MINI vehicles sold in the UK is now fully compliant with the new test regime well ahead of the deadline. Despite the more stringent test requirements, the BMW range has increased on average by just 8g/km while the MINI average increase is just 5g/km*. BMW’s market-leading electric and plug-in hybrid range performed particularly well with the top-selling BMW 530e Saloon increasing by just 3 grams to 49g/km.
*For Spartanburg production models (X3, X4, X5 and X6), technical changes are effective from 01 August 2018.
