With a very fast response, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation reported that none of the vehicles sold in the united States are affected by the irregularities in the test data of fuel consumption, for which the problem is initially circunscripto to the japanese market.
Mitsubishi Motors America in partnership with Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, carried out an internal audit of all the vehicles that are marketed in the united States in order to determine the fuel consumption data presented in a timely manner to the EPA. After reviewing in a comprehensive way models marketed between the years 2013 and 2016, determined that none of them is affected by the fraud, since the data are correct and comply with the procedures established by the EPA.
