Things don’t get any better for JLR right now. They have endured yet another blow after it has emerged that regulators found 10 models were emitting more of the greenhouse gas than they had been certified to emit. This will Affect 44,000 cars in the UK over carbon dioxide emissions.
A JLR spokeswoman said.
“JLR is facing a number of challenges at the moment, including a slump in demand for diesel cars and a sales slowdown in China”.
This is a voluntary recall of certain 2016-2019 MY Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles fitted with two-litre diesel or petrol engines.
The affected models are:
- Some two-litre 2016 to 2018 Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport cars
- Certain two litre Range Rover Evoque, Sport, and Velar cars
- Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF cars.
Depending on the model, they will require physical repairs in a dealership, while others will need software updates, the spokeswoman said.
“Affected vehicles do not consistently achieve the expected levels of CO2 emissions during the course of Conformity of Production (CoP) testing and as such are being rectified to ensure the correct CO2 performance is dependably achieved.
The modifications made to affected vehicles will be made free of charge and every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to the customer during the short time required for the work to be carried out.”
What should affected owners do? If you own an affected car, you should be contacted shortly. You will be asked to go to an authorised garage/dealership so the repairs and software update can be carried out
With this, the Brexit uncertainty, and in January the confirmation they are cutting 4,500 jobs, with the substantial majority coming from its 40,000 strong UK workforce it is a worrying time for JLR!
