Introduction to WLTP
Reflecting real world consumption and emissions values
New consumption values apply as of September 2017 for new to market vehicles. These will be calculated using the new WLTP standard. WLTP stands for Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure. This is a worldwide standardised testing procedure for estimating fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. Find out what this means for you and your SEAT.
Anyone wanting to buy a car may want to check the consumption and CO2 emission values. Read more to find out how these will be calculated using a new testing procedure in future.
How much fuel does a vehicle consume? Like other manufacturers, SEAT now aims to answer this question more precisely with the new and standardised WLTP driving cycle. The new test cycle for measuring fuel consumption is perceived to be more closely oriented on everyday driving behaviour. As of September 2017, this replaced the current NEDC standard.
WLTP stands for Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure. This worldwide harmonised testing procedure for light-duty vehicles describes a new testing method to estimate a vehicle’s fuel consumption. This procedure is based on real recorded driving data. In future it will help to simulate realistic driving even under laboratory conditions. That is why WLTP not only takes into consideration various situations and speeds but also a vehicle’s different equipment variants and weight classes.
Using real driving data collected worldwide, WLTP aims to deliver more realistic consumption values.
