Mitsubishi Emissions Scandal

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has admitted to intentionally falsifying fuel mileage data to make mileage appear better than it actually is.


The affected models are the Mitsubishi ek Wagon and ek Space and the Nissan Dayz and Dayz Roox. It is still unclear whether the scandal will spread to cars tested and sold outside of Japan:


“Based on what we know so far, Mitsubishi’s issues are focused on about 600,000 cars sold in the Japanese market. However, there is a possibility that the affair may spread outside Japan, as a similar car-testing method was used in the US, and Mitsubishi will look into vehicles sold in other markets as well. When the VW scandal broke on September 18 last year it was initially confined to about 500,000 cars in the US that were fitted with defeat devices. But the number soon climbed to some 11 million vehicles worldwide…”
