Jaguar Land Rover recalls 44K cars over emissions

Syndicate Post image

Jaguar Land Rover has been forced to recall more than 44,000 cars for repairs after United Kingdom regulators found some models were emitting more carbon dioxide than previously thought.

The vehicle maker will contact owners to arrange repairs, a JLR spokeswoman said.

Affected models include some 2.0-litre 2016 to 2018 Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport models; certain 2.0-litre Range Rover Evoque, Sport, and Velar cars; and Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF cars.

It affects Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles fitted with either a 2.0-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engine.

The repairs could include software updates as well as physical alterations, with some Range Rover Evoque models possibly requiring new tyres. The company will contact the owners of the affected vehicles to arrange for free-of-charge repairs.

While the recall is not expected to have a major financial impact on the company, it comes at a time when Britain's largest carmaker has already been battling Brexit-related headwinds for the automotive industry.

The company aims to achieve £2.5 billion in cost reductions and cashflow improvements over 18 months as well as long-term strategic operating efficiencies.

In a statement, Jaguar Land Rover said: "Affected vehicles are being rectified to ensure the correct Carbon dioxide performance is dependably achieved". The conclusion by regulators is another blow the British auto manufacturer which is dealing with a slump in diesel sales in Europe and sluggish sales in China.

However, weaker market conditions continued to weigh on sales in China, which posted a decline 47.6 percent YoY, JLR said.

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.
