Mitsubishi Motors and Nissan will resume the sales of the cars that were embroiled in the fuel efficiency scandal, after the Japan's Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Ministry officially allowed it. These news concern more precisely the eK Wagon, eK Space and the Dayz and Dayz Roox models Mitsubishi manufactures for Nissan.
Mitsubishi has submitted revised mileage results that were already based on current parameters issued by the ministry. The authorities decided to issue the automaker a stern reprimand, after checking emissions, which passed the standard, and finding that the manipulated mileage data did not affect the safety of the vehicles.
As part of its effort to win back the public’s trust, Mitsubishi has said that it will pay each Japanese owner of a vehicle involved in the fuel efficiency scandal a compensation for the extra fuel expense and falsifying the mileage data. Mitsubishi Motors expects to declare a net loss this year due to the scandal. The total cost for the compensation is expected to reach $600-million, which will siginificantly hit its bottom line.
