Volvo has recalled more than 7 lakh cars all over the world. The reason for this is the problem in automatic emergency braking AEB. Due to this feature, if the driver is unable to press the pedal in time when there is another car ahead of the Volvo car, then the sensors of the car detect the other car and the brakes are applied automatically.
Volvo says that AEB is not working in cars made between November 2018 to March 2020. Software updates will help to fix this problem. The owners of the affected cars will be notified from May 1, 2020. After that, the Active Safety Domain Master software will be updated. The company is recalling the XC40, XC60, XC90, S60, S90, and V range cars all over the world.
India is also not untouched by this recall. Volvo India is also recalling cars. The 1891 cars of the company have been affected by the problem in AEB in India. These include V90 CC, S90, XC60, XC90, S60 and XC40. Notices have been sent to dealers about this.
However, due to the effect of Corona virus, this operation can be delayed. Volvo India sales and production have not been affected by the Corona virus. Work has resumed in the company’s China facility, while Sweden and US factories will remain closed until April 14.
