Japanese Automakers Suzuki, Mazda, Yamaha Falsified Data, Government Says

TOKYO – Japanese auto manufactures Suzuki, Mazda and Yamaha falsified emissions and fuel economy data of their vehicles, authorities said on Thursday.

The announcement was made by Japan’s transport ministry after an inspection it ordered at 23 Japanese car manufacturers last month, following similar admissions by Nissan and Subaru.

According to an official statement, inspections carried out at Suzuki, Mazda and Yamaha showed that valid fuel economy and emissions data was recorded despite irregularities in the tests.

After the ministry’s statement, Suzuki President Toshihiro Suzuki apologized for the problems caused by the falsification of data, saying the company had failed to train its staff in an extensive and comprehensive manner.

The transport ministry instructed the companies to adopt measures to prevent falsified data from being recorded again but said it would analyze each case and take appropriate steps.

Earlier this year, Nissan and Subaru had admitted to having falsified data on fuel economy and exhaust emissions.

In 2016, Mitsubishi also said it had systematically falsified fuel consumption data in some of its vehicles, which sparked a crisis in the company and led to its purchase by Nissan.
