I think you meant September 2018-
For those who don't know (as I didn't-looked it up)
'Wlvtp' means 'worldwide harmonised light vehicles test procedure'
Basically a change in statutory test methods for consumption, emissions and pollutants.
It's NEW models that have to comply from 1st September 2017. But ALL vehicles (i.e. existing models) have to comply from 1st September 2018.
The following statement is from a VW Website:
'Since autumn 2017, the WLTP gradually replaced the NEDC. Passenger cars and light commercial vehicles are subject to different deadlines.
The new WLTP test procedure will be gradually introduced in the European countries with different deadlines for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.
The first deadline for the WLTP in the passenger car segment was September 1, 2017. From this date, type approval for new models requires consumption and CO2 emission values to be measured using the WLTP. From September 1, 2018, the WLTP applies to all new vehicles - including all ongoing models that received type approval on the basis of the NEDC. As a result, manufacturers must label these vehicles with WLTP values from this point in time.'
I stand corrected, regarding old/new
I can see this causing confusion and frustration for future car buyers-Imagine buying second-hand cars from certain periods. I also read somewhere there would be an 'amnesty' for current 'end of line' models in the car industry.
