Mitsubishi’s False Fuel Economy Data

Posted by: Xavier Kwan onJune 16th, 2016


It has been nearly two months since Mitsubishi admitted to falsifying fuel economy data on some of their vehicles in Japan. Well, now its starting to look like the originally disclosed number of impacted models was lower than they stated. Details will soon be released on which models were further affected, but their US division vehemently denies that any of their vehicles have false fuel economy data.

From the fall out of the fuel economy scandal, there will be some shuffling around at the top. It is expected that Tetsurao Aikawa, President of Mitsubishi, and Ryugo Nakao, EVP, will resign. The Chief, Osamu Masuko, will continue in this role to provide business continuity as Nissan absorbs 34 percent of Mitsubishi.
