Executive Analysis for European Emission Standards and Testing Procedures : Use of Advanced Powertrain Technologies will be the Key Strategy to Adopt New Test Procedures

The research service focuses on the globalized vehicle testing procedures. It focuses specifically on the World Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) and the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), showing their unique parameters and the CO2 emission results achieved by their implementation in various models. The research service provides a comparative analysis of various test procedures, impacts of various technologies on WLTP and NEDC results, key technologies favoring the shift in testing procedure, challenges in adopting a new test cycle, and future trends and upcoming technologies which will help in adoption of WLTP. The base year is 2015 and forecast is provided till 2020.

Key Highlights

Adoption of the World Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure:

- Adopting World Harmonized Test Cycle will be an excessive leap from New European Driving Cycle as OEMs will need to implement technologies that would help in real time driving conditions.
- WP29 forum is expected to launch the date of implementation of WLTP by the end of September 2015.
- Real time testing conditions will help UNECE and ACEA to regulate emission levels for all OEMs and will help in reducing emission levels in highly urbanized areas. 2 Emission Regulations and Proposals:
- Stringent emission regulations in Europe for all OEMs as Euro 6c norms are imposed by 2017 and OEMs will focus to reduce the average fleet emissions to g/km by 2020 using NEDC.
- US Tier 2 Bin 5 and CAFÉ emissions norms will be the key driver to adopt high end powertrain technologies.
- China and India will enforce Euro 5 equivalent emission standards by 2017, and will always be compliant to NEDC. 3 Breakthrough in Powertrain Technology:
- OEMs are making heavy investments to develop low production cost technologies to be implemented in their fleet. Adopting WLTP will drive technologies such as downsizing, multiple boosting systems, Direct injection engines, hybridization and exhaust systems.
- OEMs will look to optimize these technologies to obtain sustained results in WLTP. 4 Engine Modularity:
- Standard downsized engine platforms with advanced technologies will reduce % CO2 emissions in the WLTP cycle.
