PVS talks... Real World Driving Emissions

PVS talks... Real World Driving Emissions

In the Autumn Budget 2017, the government announced that it would legislate in a future Finance Bill, for the WLTP system to be introduced from April 2020.
As of the 6th April 2018 the company car tax rate for a diesel certified RDE2 will be equivalent to that of a petrol car with the same emissions band. Any diesel car not certified RDE2 (Real World Driving Emissions Stage 2) will be subject to a 4% supplement, and from September 2018 the WLTP (World Harmonised Light Vehicle Testing Procedure) approval will be mandatory for new cars.
This paper is designed to explore how the WLTP and the RDE2 supplement will affect official performance and emissions figures to try and remove the uncertainty surrounding potential legislation changes for company car drivers, fleet managers and fleet owners.
