Fuel consumption testing on products manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors Corporation.

- Immediate actions taken
- Models affected are only sold in Japan
- Testing addresses 'fuel consumption' not 'emissions'
- External enquiry will quickly make findings public

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) in Japan has announced that it has discovered fuel consumption testing data submitted to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) has been improperly presented in order to improve fuel consumption rates. The testing method was also different from that required by Japanese law.

The company has acted quickly to apologise to its customers and stakeholders and will put in place a committee of external experts to thoroughly and objectively investigate the issue. In line with the company's open and transparent policy, it has pledged to make these results public as soon as this is complete.

Lance Bradley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK says: "Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has acted quickly and decisively. We understand that such issues are of great concern to consumers. I would like to reassure everyone that there is no evidence to suggest that UK or European models are affected."

MMC has immediately halted production and sales of the four cars, which are the Mitsubishi eK Wagon, Mitsubishi eK Space, the Nissan Dayz and Nissan Roox, which are manufactured for Nissan by MMC. 

The cars in question are only sold in the Japanese domestic market.
