Tata Motors' Jaguar Land Rover recalls 44,000 cars over CO2 emission levels

The recall is thought to be the first Carbon dioxide related recall for JLR.

JAGUAR Land Rover is recalling more than 44,000 cars in the United Kingdom, after 10 models were found to produce higher-than-certified amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2).

The recall affects a range of models sold in the United Kingdom between 2016 and 2019 powered by 2.0-litre petrol or diesel engines.

The country's biggest auto manufacturer said the vehicles are emitting more of the greenhouse gas than expected.

Affected models include some 2.0-litre 2016 to 2018 Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport models; certain 2.0-litre Range Rover Evoque, Sport, and Velar cars; and Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF cars. The scope of repairs involves software updates as well as physical alterations, with some Range Rover Evoque models possibly requiring new tyres.

For this Friday's render, our artist made a decision to take a stab at envisioning the revamped XJ using as foundation the latest design language seen on models such as the I-Pace and more recently on the XE facelift.

This recall comes after it was reported that the Land Rover Discovery TD6 outperformed a number of other cars in new independent pollution tests, revealing it produced low NOx.

The auto maker will contact owners to arrange repairs, a JLR spokeswoman said.

At the same time, global agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions has prompted multiple governments to announce plans to ban the sale of new fossil fuel-powered cars, with the United Kingdom to do so from 2040.

JLR also declared that it shall be contacting the owners of the affected vehicles in order to arrange free-of-charge repairs.

"The DVSA's priority is to protect everyone from unsafe drivers and vehicles".

While today's announcement is far from the largest recall the industry has seen in recent years, the cost of carrying out work on 44,000 cars will come as a blow to the brand.
