Why does my new car have miles recorded on the odometer?

Enhanced regulatory requirements and increasing product complexity mean there's a growing testing requirement within our production processes.


Changes to regulations (for example relating to emissions tests) and comprehensive testing of the increasing number of new driver assistance systems not only means testing more cars in production, but also testing them over longer distances prior to customer delivery.  Whilst this additional testing is necessary to achieve the premium quality of all our cars, one consequence is that when delivered to our customers, new cars may have travelled slightly longer distances than customers may have expected in the past.
