Following the Japanese government’s request for four of its top car manufacturers to submit its diesel emission reports amid the Volkswagen’s scandal, Mazda has issued a formal public statement to reassure that its vehicles are fully compliant to all regulations and that illegal software such as ‘Defeat Devices’ are never used.
“In compliance with the law, Mazda works hard to ensure that every gasoline and diesel engine it makes fully complies with the regulations of the countries in which they are sold. Mazda never uses illegal software or defeat devices. Mazda’s customers may rest assured that their vehicles are fully compliant with all regulations.”
The statement goes on to say that the Japanese carmaker has always been committed to improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 and other emissions by developing new technologies to achieve “ideal combustion”.
“A number of countries around the world are investigating new homologation testing methods based on real driving conditions, such as Worldwide harmonized Light-duty Test Cycles and Real Driving Emissions. Mazda supports these initiatives and will cooperate with any requests from authorities.”
