Mum­bai: Volk­swa­gen In­dia has re­called 3,877 Vento sedans over in­con­sis­tent car­bon monox­ide emis­sions on some man­ual ver­sions. It has also de­cided to tem­po­rar­ily halt sales of man­u­al­trans­mis­sion, 1.5-litre diesel Vento sedans with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. The re­call in In­dia is not con­nected to 11 mil­lion ve­hi­cles af­fected glob­ally by the con­tro­versy over ni­tro- gen ox­ide emis­sions. Some Ven­tos with man­ual gear­boxes oc­ca­sion­ally ex­ceeded lim­its dur­ing tests by the Au­to­mo­tive Re­search As­so­ci­a­tion of In­dia (ARAI), the com­pany said in a re­lease. Volk­swa­gen In­dia is analysing the mat­ter and will pro­pose tech­ni­cal mea­sures to ARAI to re­solve the in­con­sis­tency at the ear­li­est, it said.

Group unit Skoda has halted sales of its Rapid model, which is sim­i­lar to the Vento, but hasn’t an­nounced any re­calls. “The is­sue in con­cern does not af­fect the Skoda Rapid,” a com­pany spokesper­son said.
