Jaguar Land Rover RECALL 44,000 cars for excessive CO2 emissions

In the United Kingdom, after concerns first emerged, JLR worked with Britain's Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA), the country's type approval authority, to identify the scale of the problem and the actions needed.

Britain's largest vehicle maker said they will carry out free repairs on the models. The manufacturer then contacted the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and an alert was made via the European Commission's rapid alert system.

Recalls of cars to fix safety defects happen fairly often, but full product recalls because of exhaust emissions are rare. It is thought to be the first carbon dioxide-related recall for JLR.

If you want to double-check if your vehicle is affected you can contact Jaguar on 0345 303 2303 or Land Rover on 0370 5000 500 with your car's VIN number.

The affected models affected are, some two-litre 2016 to 2018 Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport cars, some two litre Range Rover Evoque, Sport, and Velar cars and the Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF cars. Both petrol and diesel models are included in the recall. Although it does seem the Evoque may need new tyres.

Vehicle emissions have come under increased scrutiny in recent years following Volkswagen's diesel scandal, in which it was found to have installed software to trick emissions tests.

At the same time, worldwide agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions prompted government to announce the ban of new fossil-fuel cars.

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

European manufacturers are under pressure to reduce average emissions of new vehicles from 118.5g of Carbon dioxide per kilometre to less than 95g by 2021.

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