Fuel Economy Scandal
The Japanese Transport Ministry found that Mitsubishi overstated the fuel economy for some of its vehicles by as much as 8.8%. On average, fuel economy on affected models was 4.2% lower than advertised. Mitsubishi responded to the Transport Ministry’s findings by conceding that it had a “lax approach to compliance.”
Mitsubishi has admitted to using improper fuel-economy test methods since 1991. Earlier this year, Mitsubishi admitted that it falsified fuel economy data relating to four of its “minicar” models, which it primarily sells overseas.
