Every year, Fleet World hosts its annual WLTP Challenge – an event designed to reveal the real-world fuel efficiency of many of the UK’s most popular vehicles.
However, the focus will this year expand beyond pure fuel efficiency and will highlight the role of telematics in helping motorists to be safer, greener and more efficient road users.
What is the WLTP Challenge?
WLTP stands for the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Testing Procedure and aims to give real-world figures for fuel consumption, CO2 and other pollutant emissions and the energy consumption values of alternative powertrains. It aims to provide a clearer indication of on-road performance against laboratory-only testing for vehicles.
Fleet World states: “The Challenge sets out to find out whether WLTP figures are now an accurate representation of real-world fuel economy, and provide reassurance to drivers.”
