Mercedes-Benz faces massive recall in Europe

Mercedes-Benz faces massive recall in Europe

Daimler AG seems to be in a spot of bother with a massive recall of 7,74,000 vehicles in Europe. The huge number of vehicles are being recalled as the company has been accused of fitting emissions defeat devices in certain diesel models by German authorities.

As a result, the German manufacturer will have to update the engine software in the affected models. The ordered recall follows Daimler's decision to voluntarily recall three million vehicles in the EU last year to perform software updates and improve emissions performance. The updates were meant to bring older cars into compliance with Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission regulations.

The affected car models are only sold in Europe and include the Mercedes-Benz Vito commercial van, C220d sedan, and GLC220d crossover SUV. While there are no fines imposed, the software fix will reportedly cost the German automaker $118 million.
