The new WLTC test cycle not only takes into account a large range of operating conditions of the engine, but also brings about fundamental changes in weighting operating states. Virtual Vehicle and Renault therefore use an innovative friction measurement and calculation method for the Energy dCi 130 engine in order to analyse engine friction in detail, particularly with regard to the new test cycle.
