Jaguar Land Rover recalls 44000 UK cars over CO2 emissions

Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover will recall more than 44,000 cars for repairs after United Kingdom regulators found faulty models emitting more carbon dioxide than advertised. Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover celebrated the XJ's 50 anniversary past year when it announced on multiple occasions plans for an all-new vehicle.

The repairs are expected to include software updates as well as physical alterations. However, it did say all of the repairs would be carried out free of charge, and it's aiming to "minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out".

This announcement was made after regulators discovered 10 models were emitting more than the permitted levels of the greenhouse gas.

The news comes a week after Jaguar Land Rover announced that its diesel vehicles had some of the lowest NOx emissions of any auto on sale today.

UK Parliament votes to delay Brexit but rejects second referendum
May is expected to again submit the withdrawal deal to lawmakers next week, though it has already been rejected twice. The following night, 13 ministers broke ranks and voted to take No Deal off the table.

Among the models affected include the Land Rover Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Velar and Evoque made between 2016 and 2019. The findings were then reported by JLR to the country's Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The most exciting version of JLR's 2.0-litre range produces 300hp in the F-Type P300 - although we're yet to learn whether that specific variant is included in the recall.

The European recall stated that affected cars "may emit excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition".

Speaking with Automotive News Europe, Greg Archer, UK director for the European environmental pressure group, said: "JLR has clearly been minimizing the declared Carbon dioxide and under estimating emissions". Earlier this year, it had confirmed job cuts of around 4,500 amid sluggish global sales. As of now, JLR is not saying what the fix will entail.
