Jaguar Land Rover will recall more than 44,000 diesel-engined cars after regulators found that they may emit “excessive” levels of CO2 emission.

The recall will apply to ten Jaguar and Land Rover models fitted with either a 2.0-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engine, and which emit more CO2 than their initial certification.

In turn, the car maker reported the issued to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, which handles recalls, and an alert was issued via the European Commission’s rapid alert system.

The EU recall note says that the vehicles affected “may emit excessive levels of CO2 and may not conform with the certified condition.”
