What is WLTP standards?
The WLTP, as a whole, is a set of procedures necessary to vouch for the compliance of all newly released automobiles on the market. The goal is to make sure that all cars adhere to the anti-pollution requirements, generally known as the emission controls. The Euro 6 emissions regulations are currently in force. Same procedure is followed for the EV cars to test their range and the battery capacity. The WLTP standard is helpful for the consumer to understand the EV's efficiency & range.
