The EPA NYCC test has been developed for chassis dynamometer testing of light-duty vehicles (CFR 40, 86, App.I). The test simulates low speed urban driving with frequent stops.
The following are basic parameters of the cycle:
- Duration: 598 seconds
- Distance: 1.18 miles = 1.89 km km
- Average speed: 7.1 mi/h = 11.4 km/h
- Maximum speed: 27.7 mi/h = 44.6 km/h
