After failing production conformity (CoP) testing, MG Motor India has canceled an update to the shipping software for the 14,000 Hector SUV. All of these Hectors are BS6 dual clutch (DCT) SUVs.
The International Center for Automotive Technology (iCAT) in Manesar, Haryana, conducted a CoP test on some model models. The model models came from MG Motor’s Halol plant in Gujarat. The cars did not pass the CoP tests for the type approval of the DCT petrol version of the SUV.
iCAT found differences in hydrocarbon and NOx emissions when testing Hector DCT BS6 model models obtained from the company. The problem is believed to be due to a software bug that can only be fixed by updating the software and the same is officially recommended to MG.
The conformity of production test is a method of demonstrating the ability to successively create goods that accurately meet the vehicle’s specifications, performance and other criteria defined in the type-approval documentation prior to its entry into service.
MG stated that it hopes to obtain formal approval for the solution from the relevant authorities in the near future. Hector model owners will be notified in the coming days.
Morris Garages debuted in India in July 2019 with the Hector mid-size SUV and has already sold over 60,000 SUVs. The Hector has either a 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine that produces 143 hp and 250 Nm of torque, or a 2.0-liter MultiJet diesel engine that pushes 170 hp and 350 Nm of torque.
