Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced that it will recall 44,000 cars due to engines producing excessive CO2 emissions.
The UK Vehicle Certification Agency identified 10 JLR models that were emitting to a higher-level of CO2 emissions than permitted, leading to a voluntary recall from the manufacturer.
The affected cars — a mix of petrol and diesel-powered vehicles — are all powered by two-litre ‘Ingenium’ units. The full list of potentially affected vehicles can be seen below:
- Land Rover Discovery
- Land Rover Discovery Sport
- Range Rover Evoque
- Range Rover Sport
- Range Rover Velar
- Jaguar E-Pace
- Jaguar F-Pace
- Jaguar F-Type
- Jaguar XE
- Jaguar XF
Some cars will need physical repairs to resolve the issue, while others will be fixable via a software update. If your car is one that needs to be called in for repairs relating to the recall, you will be contacted by JLR.
The British firm released a statement on the recall, which read: “Jaguar Land Rover is conducting a voluntary recall following the identification of CO2 performance variability with certain Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles fitted with 2.0-litre diesel or petrol engines.
“Affected vehicles will be repaired free of charge and every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out.”
This news comes in the midst of a difficult time for Jaguar Land Rover, which has announced the cutting of 4,500 jobs in recent times, and is struggling under the uncertainty brought on by Brexit.
