The recall includes vehicles such as the Land Rover Discovery, Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar F-Pace. The scope of repairs involves software updates as well as physical alterations, with some Range Rover Evoque models possibly requiring new tyres.

The British auto brands have issued a voluntary recall after the Vehicle Certification Agency found that 10 models were emitting more Carbon dioxide than they were officially certified for. 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 alerts for each auto all say the same thing: "Certain vehicles fitted with 2.0-litre diesel engines may emit excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition". Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover celebrated the XJ's 50 anniversary a year ago when it announced on multiple occasions plans for an all-new vehicle.

The timing of this recall will be even more embarrassing than the average recall for Jaguar Land Rover, which only last week was proudly touting the environmental credentials of its 2.0-litre diesel engine.

"Jaguar Land Rover must now act quickly to tell affected customers so that they can have their vehicles modified appropriately". However, it did say all of the repairs would be carried out free of charge, and it's aiming to "minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out".

An industry source said around 44,000 cars will be recalled once remedial action has been agreed between the manufacturer and the authorities.

Land Rover Discoveries with the 2.0-litre Ingenium engine are among the models being recalled. Among them is Jaguar Land Rover, the business comprising the two iconic British brands.
