Tata Motors’ JLR recalls 44,000 cars over Carbon dioxide emission levels

Adjust Comment Print

Jaguar Land Rovers (JLR) voluntarily recalled almost 44,000 cars in the United Kingdom as they were emitting higher than certified levels of carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions.

For Jaguar it's again the 2.0 litre petrol in the Jaguar XE, XF, F-Pace, E-Pace and F-Type being recalled, and the 2.0 litre diesel in the XE and XF too.

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

The UK-based luxury car-maker said on Thursday that it will contact the owners of the affected vehicles to arrange for free-of-charge repairs after regulators found 10 models were emitting more of the greenhouse gas than they had been certified to emit.

The problem was first identified by the UK's Vehicle Certification Authority, which discovered a discrepancy between the stated Carbon dioxide emissions and the actual Carbon dioxide output of the affected cars during conformity testing.

Among the models affected include the Land Rover Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Velar and Evoque made between 2016 and 2019.

The alerts for each auto all say the same thing: "Certain vehicles fitted with 2.0-litre diesel engines may emit excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition".

The emissions recall comes at a hard time for the company.

In January the firm confirmed it is cutting 4,500 jobs, with the substantial majority coming from its 40,000 strong United Kingdom workforce.
