India's largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki has proactively recalled 63,493 certain petrol Smart Hybrid (SHVS) variants of Ciaz, Ertiga and XL6 vehicles, the company said in a statement to the Bombay Stock Exchange late Friday.

The vehicles were manufactured by an overseas global part supplier between Jan 1 to Nov 21 this year for a possible defect with the Motor Generator Unit (MGU) and such vehicles will be retained for replacement of the same free of cost, the statement said.

Customers of suspected vehicles can also visit the company website and fill in the chassis number to check, reports Xinhua.

In August, the company had voluntary recalled 40,618 units of the WagonR manufactured between Nov 15, 2018 and Aug 12, 2019 to inspect a possible issue of fuel hose fouling with metal clamp.

In May 2018, Maruti Suzuki recalled 52,686 units of Swift and Baleno models, which were affected by a faulty brake vacuum hose.
