VW Polo deliveries in India suspended temporarily due to a technical reason

VW Polo deliveries

The company issues a statement clarifying that the issue is not related to the EA189 dieselgate.

VW Polo deliveries in India have been temporarily suspended due to what the company calls as a technical reason. Without divulging much on the issue, VW India has released a statement saying the problem affects only cars that were produced in a specific period. The problem is being evaluated and more details are expected to be released in the coming days.

The official statement reads:

Volkswagen India has confirmed a temporary hold on deliveries of its carline Polo due to a technical reason which is currently under evaluation. This concerns a limited number of cars out of a specific production period. Volkswagen further confirms that deliveries for the non-impacted Polo range continues as per schedule.

Volkswagen would like to clarify that the temporary hold on deliveries is not related to the ongoing EA 189 diesel engine topic.

The company has not revealed the nature of the technical reason behind the delivery suspension.

The company has recently issued a mandate to all its dealer partners across the country to stop ‘physically’ delivering the new Polo cars to the customers. The mandate covers all the variants of the premium hatchback.

The findings of the evaluation could trigger a voluntary recall of the cars. With ARAI assessing the impact of the emission test scandal in India, the last thing the company needs is a possible defect in one of its products.
