A total of 16,582 Volvos are being recalled in China due to a problem with the software in the Vehicle Connectivity Module (VCM), according to the State Administration for Market Regulation. The recall affects both imported and domestically made models including XC90, S90, V90CC and XC40, manufactured between 2016 and 2018, the administration said in a statement, Xinhua news agency reported.

The software in the VCM of the affected vehicles may have an error causing the failure of vehicle positioning. As a result, the vehicles will not provide location information to emergency personnel in the event of an accident. Volvo Automobile Sales (Shanghai) Co and two manufacturers of Volvo in China will update the defective software free of charge for affected owners.

Volvo Cars, owned by China's Geely, also said earlier that it has no current plans to go for a stockmarket listing, more than two months after the Swedish carmaker postponed its flotation blaming trade tensions and an automotive stocks downturn.

The Swedish carmaker had also announced a deal with Swedish communication services company Ericsson which would let industrialised Ericsson Connected Vehicle Cloud (CVC) platform enable the carmaker's digital vehicle services in over global 120 markets for the next five years.
