Both the WLTP and the NEDC are emission testing
procedures. These are designed to replicate as much
as possible, how a car is typically used on the road. The WLTP is the latest set of standards while the NEDC was its predecessor.
Both NEDC and WLTP
represent a series of tests required to certify that
all new vehicles on the market abide by regulations.
Since September 1, 2017, the WLTP standards have
been in effect for all new models of vehicles,
gradually replacing the NEDC standards (New European
Driving Cycle) which had been the reference since
The conditions of the WLTP Driving cycle
tests are stricter than those of the NEDC protocol
but they do not consider very possible usage of a
vehicle in real life.
For example, a thermal window
of 5-15 degrees may be used during testing as
opposed to the variance of actual real-world
Testing results can change over time.
It also cannot be ruled out that the relevant
authorities may request alternative emission
strategies for example the application of different
thermal windows which may alter emissions results.
