The recall is to install a software upgrade to reduce emissions.

The company announced that it will recall around three million cars across the European region to help reduce diesel emission. Daimler will install new software for cars running with OM 607, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines (mainly used in the A-class and B-class models) that will help lower their nitrogen oxide output.

Recent allegations of cheating emission tests were levied against Daimler in Germany. German transport ministry officials met with Daimler representatives last week, including head of technology development, Ola Kaellenius. The recall, set to cost about 220 million euros, is being “carried out in close cooperation with the German regulatory authorities” and will take about one hour per car, with the first Cars set to receive updates in the coming weeks.

Daimler hopes that this move will “strengthen confidence” among its customers in the long term as the brand also revealed that it is planning to add cleaner and more efficient diesel engines to its range in the near future.
