“Volkswagen India is analysing the issue and will propose technical measures to ARAI to solve this inconsistency at the earliest. Once approved and confirmed by the competent authorities, Volkswagen India will implement the measures and resume the production and sales of the relevant vehicle,” the company said in a statement.

The company also added “This problem impacts only the manual gearbox version of Vento with 1.5-litre diesel engine and is not connected to the global NOx emissions topic. All vehicles in the customer hands are technically safe and roadworthy. All other diesel models and variants of Volkswagen India, including Vento 1.5TDI with Automatic Transmission (DSG) and all diesel Polo cars, conform to the norms and will continue to be produced and sold in India.”

The 1.5-litre TDI powering Vento offers a max power of 103.5 bhp at 4400 rpm and a peak torque figure of 250 Nm between 1500 - 2500 rpm. The powertrain is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox that provides power to the front wheels. The same powertrain will be incorporated in a the upcoming compact sedan, Volkswagen Ameo.
