"Jaguar Land Rover is conducting a voluntary recall following the identification of Carbon dioxide performance variability with certain 2016-2019 MY Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles fitted with 2.0L diesel or petrol engines", said James Scrimshaw, PR manager for JLR Australia.

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.

Physical repairs will be needed on some, while others will only need their software updated.

JLR also declared that it shall be contacting the owners of the affected vehicles in order to arrange free-of-charge repairs.

Regulators found 10 models were emitting more of the greenhouse gas than they had been certified to emit.

One of the alerts issued said: "Certain vehicles fitted with 2.0L diesel engines may emit excessive levels of Carbon dioxide and may not conform with the certified condition".

Natalie Hitchins, head of home products and services at consumer group Which?, said: "Consumers must be able to fully trust the claims of auto manufacturers, particularly after the emissions scandals of recent years".

Speaking with CarAdvice, JLR's local arm confirmed there are 1731 units affected in Australia - 958 Land Rovers and 773 Jaguars.
