The CO2 performance variability was discovered by UK's Vehicle Certification Agency.

Britain's largest vehicle maker said they will carry out free repairs on the models.

Recalls of cars to fix safety defects happen fairly often, but full product recalls because of exhaust emissions are rare.

If you own one of the vehicles above and are not sure whether your auto is affected by this recall, contact your local Jaguar or Land Rover dealership.

Tata Motors shares fell 2 percent in morning on Thursday after subsidiary JLR recalled some cars due to excessive Carbon dioxide emissions.

Land Rover models affected are the 2.0 litre petrol versions of the Land Rover Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque, with the 2.0 litre diesel in the Evoque also in the frame.

The manufacturer said that some of the models will need physical repairs in a dealership, while some will need software updates.

JLR is yet to reveal why some models exceed Carbon dioxide limits; the 2.0-litre petrol and diesel motors were understood to officially conform with the latest emissions limits when they were introduced as part of the Ingenium line-up that arrived in 2015.

For this Friday's render, our artist made a decision 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 Range Rover Evoque models will reportedly need new tyres.

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

At the same time, global agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions prompted government to announce the ban of new fossil-fuel cars. "This includes vehicles that are damaging our environment".

"Affected vehicles will be repaired 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".

JLR's recall is not likely to have a material impact on the auto maker's finances.
