Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MUNICH, Germany - Nov 20, 2018 -
- All 2019 RAM 1500 Trucks imported officially by Auto Export Corporation (AEC) are approved under the new laboratory test procedure WLTP reflecting more realistic fuel consumption.
- Thanks to leading technological developments in vehicle homologation and certification, AEC is at the forefront for implementing the new standards.
“Our 20 years of experience in the homologation of North American vehicles for the European Market combined with industry leading technological developments implemented in early 2018 allow us to offer the entire range of compliant RAM Trucks to our customers and to keep our leadership on homologation of FCA vehicles,” explains Andrew Pilsworth, Chief Executive Officer of Auto Export Corporation (AEC), official importer of FCA for Dodge and RAM in the EU /EFTA.
WLTP is a more rigorous and longer test which delivers a much more accurate on-road basis for calculating a car’s fuel consumption and emissions than the outdated NEDC test method. This provides greater transparency to the customer, allowing them to make well-informed comparisons by demonstrating a greater approximation to real-world driving conditions.
AEC’s test results for all-new Modell Year 2019 RAM line-up with the 5,7L V8 Hemi® confirm a combined CO2 emission of 320 g/km under the new WLTP standards. According to the company’s CEO, AEC and its customers have not faced any delays with registrations in September, as the WLTP results were available well ahead.
Our 20 years of experience in the homologation of North American vehicles for the European Market combined with industry-leading technological developments implemented in early 2018 allow us to offer the entire range of compliant RAM Trucks to our customers and to keep our leadership on homologation of FCA vehicles.
Furthermore, AEC is committed to continue its technological advancements in the area of fuel economy and efficiency by developing WLTP-compliant alternative fuel options for the MY 2019 RAM early 2019.
