Jaguar Land Rover recalls 44K cars over emissions

Jaguar Land Rover recalls 44K cars over emissions

Jaguar Land Rover is recalling 44,535 cars made between 2016 and 2019 in the United Kingdom because they emit excessive levels of carbon dioxide. JLR will be contacting the owners to arrange repairs.

The timing of this recall will be even more embarrassing than the average recall for Jaguar Land Rover, which only last week was proudly touting the environmental credentials of its 2.0-litre diesel engine.

Physical repairs will be needed on some, while others will only need their software updated.

Land Rover models affected are the 2.0 litre petrol versions of the Land Rover Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque, with the 2.0 litre diesel in the Evoque also in the frame.

According to the BBC, the voluntary recall covers 10 diesel or petrol-engined models, which were found by the Vehicle Certification Agency to be emitting more emissions than stated.

JLR is believed to be working with the UK's Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) on a fix and the timing of the recall notice. The DVSA in turn notified the European Commission's rapid alert system.

The EU recall note says that the vehicles affected "may emit excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition".

An industry source said around 44,000 cars will be recalled once remedial action has been agreed between the manufacturer and the authorities.

The company said in a statement affected vehicles are being "rectified" to "ensure the correct Carbon dioxide performance is dependably achieved".

Natalie Hitchins, head of home products and services at consumer group Which?, said: "Consumers must be able to fully trust the claims of vehicle manufacturers, particularly after the emissions scandals of recent years".

"Jaguar Land Rover must now act quickly to tell affected customers so that they can have their vehicles modified appropriately".
