The Japanese government, specifically its Transport Ministry, have told its four top auto manufacturers (Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, and Mitsubishi) to submit a report on whether their vehicles are fitted with ‘Defeat Devices’, following Volkswagen’s diesel emission scandal, according to a report on a wire news service.
The report cited Transport Minister Akihiro Ohta, in saying that, “We are collecting information to understand what happened in its entirety. By studying our inspection system, we’re going to see if the current regime is sufficient.”
The top four Japanese car manufacturers are not the only ones being told to submit a report, but also importers of European brands there as well. The reports were told to be submitted to the ministry by this Friday.
