The European test cycle that determines a vehicle’s fuel economy and emissions output has been said to be optimistic, but indicators are that officials and the industry intend to revise test procedures for more realistic results.



This news came out of the Cars 21 summit held last week between European Union officials and auto industry chiefs.



Autocar quoted an attendee repeating what was presumably a general feeling that “a new driving test cycle and test procedure for measuring fuel consumption and emissions should be developed that is more representative of real-world driving.”



Little more is known at this point, but a preliminary plan said to be slated for 2014 is reportedly on the table as Europe also contemplates imposing fleet-wide CO2 emissions restrictions by 2020 limited to an average 95 g/km.
