Volkswagen to update  3 lakh recalled vehicle engines

 Volkswagen on Tuesday said it plans to update the engines of over 3 lakh vehicles that it recalled in India after a government-ordered probe found the German auto major using diesel engines equipped with a defeat device which help cheat emission tests.

“In the 1.2 litre (petrol), it will be a mere update on the engine management software and in the 1.5 litre we will have to change one small part that is air straightener,” Volkswagen Passenger Cars India Director Michael Mayer said.

When asked if the company aims to complete the exercise in 2016 itself, Mayer said: “We aim to but given the large numbers, we will have to see how the response of people is. But definitely we would like to do the majority of the cars in 2016.”
