Mitsubishi Motors to brief on falsified fuel economy data
TOKYO – Mitsubishi Motors Corp on Tuesday said it would hold a media briefing later in the day after providing information to Japan’s Transport Ministry on its falsification of fuel economy data.
The Japanese automaker said that its Chief Operating Officer Tetsuro Aikawa will attend the briefing scheduled for 0730 GMT or 4:30pm Tokyo time.
Mitsubishi said last week it overstated the fuel economy of four domestic models, including two produced for Nissan Motor Co, affecting 625,000 vehicles sold in Japan. -Reuters
