Volkswagen India is finally recalling the nearly 3.24 lakh diesel cars that were affected by the diesel-gate emissions scandal, which broke out last year.
The recall was expected to begin in early 2016. The recall will now be a long process since the approvals are supposed to be received from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI).
A report on CNBC-TV18 suggests that the company's first measures have been proposed to the authorities, and the company is currently awaiting approvals from ARAI.
In India, the Diesel Gate affects not only Volkswagen, but Skoda and Audi too. As of now, the company plans to update 1.9 lakh Volkswagen cars, 88,700 Skodas, and 36,500 Audi cars with the new software. The final number of updates could slightly be higher.
