Jaguar Land Rover to recall 44,000 cars over CO2

Jaguar Land Rover is recalling around 44,000 cars in the UK over issues with incorrectly stated CO2 emissions.

Jaguar E-Pace 148bhp Diesel S

The recall is said to include the Jaguar E-Pace

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.

The BBC said affected models comprise:

  • Some 2.0-litre 2016 to 2018 Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport cars.
  • Certain 2.0-litre Range Rover Evoque, Sport, and Velar cars.
  • Various Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF models.

A spokesperson for Jaguar Land Rover confirmed the recall to Fleet World, adding: “These vehicle specifications are no longer in production, and we will continue to invest in class-leading petrol and diesel technologies.

“Affected vehicles will be repaired free of charge and every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out.”

The recall comes a week after newly published data for the Air Index database found three Jaguar Land Rover models were actually well below limits for NOx emissions, ahead of new Euro 6 schedules.
