VW Group to begin emission recall in India by September end

Volkswagen announced in December 2015 about its decision to recall 3.24 lakh cars from India as part of the global emission recall. This recall included Volkswagen, Skoda, and Audi.

But for the recall company needs to seek approval of the proposed technical solution from government authorities which has been granted by the government. And now the company is gearing up to recall the affected cars from Sept end this year.

The Volkswagen had earlier stated that the 1.2-litre and 2.0-litre diesel engines will undergo a software update and the 1.5-litre unit will undergo a hardware change as well which includes placement of the plastic filter inside the engine’s air intake.

For the recall, authorized dealers would be contacting the owners of the affected cars and expenses involved in the process would be taken care of by the company. The first model to be recalled is the previous generation Skoda Superb.
