Volkswagen’s cup of woes
continues to spill like crazy. Volkswagen India will recall 3877 Vento cars
with 1.5-litre diesel engine and manual gearbox due to inconsistent Carbon
Monoxide (CO) emissions that were observed to be sometimes exceeding the
threshold limits during the Conformity of Production (COP) tests done by ARAI.
In a press statement the
company said that at the same time, Volkswagen India is temporarily holding
back sales of the manual gearbox version of the Volkswagen Vento with 1.5-litre
diesel engine with immediate effect.
Volkswagen India is analysing
the issue and will propose technical measures to ARAI to solve this
inconsistency at the earliest. Once approved and confirmed by the competent authorities,
Volkswagen India will implement the measures and resume the production and
sales of the relevant vehicle. The same technical measures will also be implemented
in the impacted vehicles that are already with customers.
This problem impacts only the manual gearbox version of Vento with
1.5-litre diesel engine and is not connected to the global NOx emissions topic.
All vehicles in the customer hands are technically safe and roadworthy. All
other diesel models and variants of Volkswagen India, including Vento 1.5TDI
with Automatic Transmission (DSG) and all diesel Polo cars, conform to the
norms and will continue to be produced and sold in India, the statement
