Jaguar Land Rover recalls 44,000 cars over emissions levelsStaff Writer |
Britain The Vehicle Certification Agency found 10 models for the Land Rover and Jaguar
Jaguar Land Rover will recall more than 44,000 cars after UK regulators found some models were emitting more carbon dioxide than previously thought.
Jaguar Land Rover will have to carry out free repairs on the models once engineers from JLR and the DVSA agree on a suitable fix.
Jaguar Land Rover’s cars “may emit excessive levels of CO2 and may not conform with the certified condition”, according to the European commission’s rapid alert system.
It will affect versions of the Land Rover Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Velar and Evoque made between 2016 and 2019. Jaguar models affected include the E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF. Petrol and some diesel models will be part of the recall.
The repairs could include software updates as well as physical alterations, and some Range Rover Evoque models will need new tyres. ■
