Mitsubishi admits manipulating fuel economy tests

  Mitsubishi Motors has admitted falsification of the fuel consumption testing data to present better fuel consumption rates.
“MMC conducted testing improperly to present better fuel consumption rates than the actual rates; and that the testing method was also different from the one required by Japanese law,” Mitsubishi Motors said issuing a statement. The Japanese car maker said that the applicable cars are four mini-car models, two of which are the “eK Wagon” and “eK Space” which have been manufactured by MMC; and the other two are the “Dayz” and “Dayz Roox” which have been manufactured by MMC and supplied to Nissan Motors Corporation (NM) since June 2013.
Up until the end of March 2016, MMC has sold 1,57,000 units of the eK Wagon and eK Space and supplied 4,68,000 units of the Dayz and Dayz Roox to NM. “We have decided to stop production and sales of the applicable cars. NM also has stopped sales of the applicable cars, and MMC and NM will discuss compensation regarding this issue,” Mitsubishi Motors announced.
