It notified JLR, which in turn informed the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), which deals with recalls in the UK.

Britain's largest carmaker will have to carry out free repairs on the models. In turn, the auto 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 recall is to be the first carbon dioxide-related recall for JLR.

The recall affects 10 different models of petrol and diesel vehicles fitted with 2-litre engines including some Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport cars, Range Rover Evoque, Sport and Velar cars, and Jaguar E-Pace, F-Pace, F-Type, XE and XF cars.

For this Friday's render, our artist chose to take a stab at envisioning the revamped XJ using as foundation the latest design language seen on models such as the I-Pace and more recently on the XE facelift. Some vehicles will need physical changes to be made, while others will only need a software update.

Most of these vehicles are petrol but there are some diesels models as well.

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".

In a statement, the manufacturer said: "Jaguar Land Rover is conducting a voluntary recall following the identification of Carbon dioxide performance variability with certain Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles fitted with 2.0L diesel or petrol engines". 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".

The recall comes at a challenging time for the company.
