MG to recall 14,000 Hector SUVs to update DCT software

iCAT found variations in Hydrocarbon and NOx emissions in BS6 Hector DCT test cars.

MG Motor India will be updating the DCT software on 14,000 Hector SUVs after they failed in the conformity of production (CoP) tests.

The CoP tests were conducted by the International Centre for Automotive Technology (iCAT), Manesar. When tests were conducted on samples (Hector DCT BS6) picked up from the company, iCAT found variations in Hydrocarbon and NOx emissions.

It is said that iCAT found that the issue could be fixed just by updating the software and the same would be formally recommended to MG.

In response to the recent developments, MG has stated that it would reach out to customers of the affected vehicles to get the software updated. This process of reflashing the software in all 14,000 units is expected to be completed by December 2021 depending on the Covid-19 situation.
