New standards induce market contraction

In September 2018, the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) was introduced in Europe. As a consequence of the new regulations and lengthier certification procedures, manufacturers slowed down vehicle deliveries. This was reflected in the overall decrease in the sales volume of cars registered in 2018. Diesel vehicles were most affected by the introduction of the new standards.
