Mercedes E-Class gets higher CO2 emissions due to WLTP

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz has increased the official CO2 emissions for the E-Class as a result of new WLTP emissions testing.

The revised figures - obtained via the new testing cycle then converted back to an NEDC equivalent - have been announced alongside a larger choice of petrol and diesel engines.

Official emissions for the E-Class saloon have increased from a base-level 102g/km to 122g/km.

The popular E 220d AMG Line now officially emits 127g/km, rising from 112g/km under the old NEDC test cycle.

All new cars launched since September 2017 have been required to be tested under the new regime and the Government has set a target for all manufacturers to re-test existing models by September 2018.

The revised test is designed to represent the real-world emissions of a vehicle and therefore produces an increased figure.

Using the Fleet News Company Car Tax Calculator, you can see all the changes across the model line-up.

Mercedes-Benz has also published revised figures for the GLC SUV.

Volvo published revised figures for its entire model line-up last week and more manufacturers are expected to release figures in the coming months, prior to the September deadline.

Alongside the revised emissions figures, Mercedes-Benz has introduced a new, more powerful, diesel engine to the range.

The E 400 d, which replaces the E 350 d, uses a new 3.0-litre straight six turbodiesel engine with an output of 340PS and 700Nm. It delivers 48.7mpg emits 154g/km of CO2. Acceleration from zero to 62 mph takes 4.9 seconds.

    I have comented here before, and risk being a stuck record, however the Goverments is wrong and has to change to confirm with the EUU statement. This says local governments must adjust thier taxation policy so the consumer does not pay more: http://wltpfacts.eu/wltp-how-much-car-tax/ We are faced with 20% tax payers having to pay an additional £200 - £400 BIK a year. The Autumn statement has to correct this, it is unfair to penalise drivers for the VW Diesel gate issues.

    The GLC also went from 129 to 161 over a weekend. Both NEDC figures but new one 'calculated' Going to hurt sales as its 5% higher up the BIK, certainly went off my list.
