Japanese automaker Toyota has recently announced a global recall of close to 1.4 million units of the Prius and CT200h models over concerns of a faulty airbag inflator mechanism and fuel emissions control units. Of the total number, Toyota India has recalled about 170 units of the Prius which were manufactured between November 2009 and October 2014.

The company has announced the recall campaign for inspection and installation of retention brackets on the curtain shield airbag inflators in the affected units of the Prius. The company will also inspect and replace the fuel suction plate sub-assembly on the affected Prius models. Customers will be intimated by the dealers in due course. They can also contact the nearest dealer or call the customer assistance centre for details.

Back at the 2016 Auto Expo event, Toyota had showcased the new-generation Prius which is built on Toyota’s new generation architecture. The current model comes with a 1.8-litre petrol engine which generates 178bhp of power. Mated to a CVT transmission, the car comes with three driving modes – Eco, Power and normal.
