To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to introduce a British fuel efficiency test for all motor vehicles sold in the United Kingdom which exactly simulates real driving conditions and which does not use a rolling road nor overinflated tyres.

We will continue to work with the EU to produce testing that more accurately reflects real world driving conditions. The current laboratory test - the New European Test Procedure - is expected to be replaced in 2017 with a new test - the World Light duty Test Procedure - that will more closely replicate the design of modern vehicles and the way they are driven.
