The arrival of WLTP emissions testing means that all vehicles registered after the 31st of March 2020 will be taxed according to their full WLTP CO2 emissions. As a result of these changes to emission figures, BiK rates for company car drivers will change, as of 6th April 2020.
The Worldwide Harmonised Light-duty Vehicle Test Procedure, or WLTP, was designed to better replicate the kind of driving conditions that are commonplace on actual roads, and produce fuel economy figures that were much more representative. For decades, drivers watched in dismay as their cars failed to return anything like their official mpg ratings and cost hundreds of pounds more in petrol and diesel than expected, all because the NEDC tests did not return realistic results.
As the WLTP test is more stringent, as it is based on real-world driving, official CO2 emissions have risen, which will have the most impact on business users.
Please see below the potential changes to BiK based on an example of a Volkswagen Passat Saloon SE 2.0TDI Manual.
