COULD THE WLTP CHANGE OR ALTER YOUR SALES TARGETS?Back

As you know new cars from September 2018 will have their fuel consumption and Co2 plus NOx gas re-evaluated by the new WLTP measurements, as the current discredited NEDC system will be dropped.

Some current vehicle models may not pass the new system and we are hearing from some manufacturer that they will be deleting some low-volume variants from their ranges. The reality is that if a model will not be passing the new standard it either needs to be registered by this August 2018 or be derogated by the brands manufacturer to be sold and registered up to the 31 August 2018.

Derogation will allow a volume of 10% of 2017 registrations for that brand and this will apply to stock vehicles built before June 2018.

All manufacturers will be dealing with this issue differently dependent on stock levels and ability to get their vehicles/models re-type approved to the new WLTP standard.  Therefore, dealers need to discuss with their suppling manufacturer there plans, and will there be stock shortages or forced self-registration of old non-compliant models,
