WLTP: More realistic consumption figures.
The new WLTP driving cycle takes into account situations that are closer to everyday life than the NEDC standard. It allows you to assess daily consumption better.
The Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) was introduced on September 1st, 2017 for new vehicle types. 12 months later it became binding for all passenger cars and thus succeeded the previously used New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). While it is still a lab test, WLTP was introduced with the intention of providing customers with fuel consumption data closer to real driving behaviour and creating a new level of transparency.
WLTP takes into account:
- More realistic driving dynamics and external temperature
- Greater test distance
- Higher average and maximum speeds
- Less holding times
- More braking and acceleration
Optional equipment also has an impact on figures determined using the WLTP driving cycle.
You can find the WLTP values for the Opel vehicle of your interest in the Configurator.
