Jaguar Land Rover is recalling 44,000 vehicles in the United Kingdom due to some of its vehicles emitting higher Carbon dioxide emissions than were officially stated.
Britain's largest vehicle maker said they will carry out free repairs on the models.
The recall applies to certain versions of the Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF, as well as the Land Rover Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Evoque and Velar, with models from between 2014 and past year affected.
Neil Barlow, head of vehicle engineering at the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), which administers vehicle recalls, said: "DVSA's priority is to protect everyone from unsafe drivers and vehicles".
A new report by industry journal, Automotive News Europe, the European Union's Safety Gate Rapex claims JLR vehicles with 2.0-litre engines (both petrol and diesel) may emit "excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition". 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. It added that this included corrective repairs and software updates, while certain 2016-17 Range Rover Evoques would require the fitting of new low-rolling resistance tyres that "enhanced the efficiency of the powertrain, thereby lowering C02 emissions".
Emissions have come under more scrutiny since Volkswagen's diesel scandal. The UK is set to roll out their ban from 2040. "This includes vehicles that are damaging our environment".
JLR's recall is not likely to have a material impact on the vehicle maker's finances. The company will contact the owners of the affected vehicles to arrange for free-of-charge repairs. Indeed, JLR posted a loss of $4-billion in the third quarter of the 2018-19 financial year leading to concerns the company is running out of money.
