Mitsubishi workers intentionally falsified fuel mileage tests, automaker admits
Mitsubishi's transgression only affects Japanese car market, however, on same website, you can read about Mini's big scandal:
Mini Cooper gas mileage overstated, U.S. regulator says
38 miles per gallon estimate at highway speeds reduced to 34 mpg
Other reports say 5 - 10% over-estimate.
Mitsu will pay to play, but I am more annoyed by the company decision to blame employees rather than take corporate responsibility.
Actually, this story reminded me that I stopped buying Mitsu two decades ago after I learned that the corporation had been selling rebadged Hyundais without disclosure. Sounds like their senior management still stinks.
No news is good news. Unfortunately for Mitsubishi, there is news:
Mitsubishi: We've been cheating on fuel tests for 25 years
Paraphrasing: "The engineers submitted fuel consumption data based on calculation rather than real-world testing, which is required by the transport ministry's regulations."
That's the most important takeaway from this video for me. Everyone dupes their testing, however submitting completely fictional numbers is a different deal. "Completely fictional" in that I assume they have used very favourable conditions for their calculations.
Could they all be at it?
