VW recall issued to get Indian EA 189 engine in line with EU standards

VW recall issued to get Indian EA 189 engine in line with EU standards

VW India has issued a statement yesterday clarifying that the recall in India is only to get its EA 189 diesel engine in line with Euro4 standards. 

In the meetings that were held, VW has added that its cars sporting the EA 189 diesel engine in India are not equipped with the ‘defeat device’ which is why they were able to sustain selling their cars in India. Further meetings are expected to happen in the future between the Indian government and the ARAI to come to a common conclusion on the matter. 

VW India presses that their voluntary recall for all the cars with the EA 189 engines are being carried out only to be in line with the latest technical updates on the EA 189 diesel engines which was announced by Volkswagen AG for the European markets.

The 'flow transformer' that Volkswagen will use on the EA 189 engine


While the 2.0-litre engines will get a software update, the 1.5-litre and 1.6-litre engines will now get a ‘flow transformer’ that will be fitted in front of the air mass sensor. In addition, a software update will also be performed on these engines. The solution that is required for the 1.2-litre engines will be announced shortly. All customers will be informed directly by their respective brands and the solutions are expected to be implemented from the first quarter of 2016 in a step-wise manner. VW maintains that the changes that will be made will not affect the handling, technical safety or the roadworthiness of the car and will be at no cost to the customers. The car maker will continue to produce and sell the cars equipped with the EA 189 engines in India.

It’s obvious that VW India is taking all the steps they need to retain the Indian consumer’s trust.
