MINI Range

Emissions.

BMW Group is ready. WLTP. Together for a better future.

In 1992, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC for short) was introduced. Since then, this procedure has been used to determine the fuel consumption and emission values of vehicles. However, the conditions of this laboratory test are disadvantageous in determining realistic consumption and emission values. Therefore, from September 2018 all cars must have been homologated under the new WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure) test cycle which is designed to better replicate real life driving conditions.

BMW Group has now published revised fuel economy and emissions data for its entire range of vehicles in accordance with the new test procedure (WLTP). This means the full range of BMW and MINI vehicles sold in the UK is now fully compliant with the new test regime well ahead of the deadline. Despite the more stringent test requirements, the MINI range has increased on average by just 5g/km.

Fleet buyers can have confidence that the full range of BMW Group vehicles is compliant with the new testing requirements and that the figures supplied for all our vehicles are future-proof providing certainty in terms of future cost.
