Jaguar Land Rover is recalling more than 44,000 cars after it was found that many of its models were emitting more carbon dioxide (CO2) than is legally permitted.

The British vehicle giant is recalling 10 different models across the Jaguar, Land Rover and Range Rover brand.

The recall affects a range of models sold in the United Kingdom between 2016 and 2019 powered by 2.0-litre petrol or diesel engines. Some vehicles will need physical changes to be made, while others will only need a software update.

A statement from JLR reads: "The modifications will be made free of charge, and every effort will be made to minimize inconvenience to the customer".

There's several model lines potentially affected by the impending recall, including the Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, XE, XF, Land Rover Discovery Sport, Range Rover Evoque, Velar, and Sport. It is now working with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), which is following up on VCA's work, to "ensure that the recall is administered and managed in line with the recall procedures to ensure the vehicles are rectified as soon as possible", the agency said. 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.

The European Commission's rapid alert system warned that JLR's cars "may emit excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition".

JLR's recall is not expected to have a material impact on the company's finances, but comes at a challenging time for the carmaker.

Meanwhile, JLR's retail sales in February 2019 fell 4.1 percent to 38,288 vehicles YoY, dented by weak customer demand in China. Its CEO, Ralf Speth, has repeatedly warned the United Kingdom government against a "bad Brexit deal", which could cost the company billions per year.
