As SEAT progresses with the WLTP transition, the following type approval timings will apply:

Passenger vehicles (M type and Category N1 (i)):

•     From September 2017, all new model introductions will be subject to WLTP type approval and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) testing
•     From September 2018, all new sales will have received type approval under WLTP
•     From September 2019, all new registrations were subject to RDE testing

Light Commercial Vehicles (Categories N1 (ii), N1 (iii) and N2):

WLTP figures are now available for customers. NEDC CO2 values derived from the WLTP test were used for taxation for the tax years 2017/2018; 2018/2019 and 2019/2020. It is only for new cars registered after 1st April 2020 (6th April for CO2), that the WLTP values will be used for taxation purposes.
