Mitsubishi, Japanese automaker manufacture four Kei models, such as eK Space, eK Wagon, Dayz Roox and Dayz, among which Dayz Roox and Dayz were acknowledged as Nissans. These are micro cars, which were promoted with superior fuel-economy figures than the ones actually manufactured.

Kei cars are super-narrow track sedan that comes equipped with an engine with the maximum capacity of 660 cc and they are exempted from parking limitations and taxes. These Kei cars manufactured by Mitsubishi are as funky as they appear, but while Mitsubishi was developing their substitutes, engineers observed variations in the shapes for air and turning resistance that offered more beneficial fuel expenditure rates than the real rates.

Principally, none of this is pertinent to the U.S. division of Mitsubishi, except the business finds supplementary divergence with its exported models. A board of external specialists is examining the matter. At present, a sum of 625,000 sedans is involved, and selling of these cars is already in progress in Japan. However, it is praiseworthy that Tetsuro Aikawa, the president of Mitsubishi Motors bowed genuinely at the Wednesday press meeting. BBC reports that Tetsuro Aikawa said that he was solely responsible even for something as slight as gas mileage.

However, as a second-level Japanese auto manufacturer in terms of manufacture and sales, Mitsubishi is no alien to huge scandals. At the stature of the Mitsubishi sales in the United States during 2002, the notorious plan of the company, the 0-0-0 scheme, meaning zero advance payment, zero Annual Percentage Rate, and no payments for the first year of acquisition, imploded after lots of buyers defaulted. In 2004, Katsuhiko Kawasoe, the ex-president of Mitsubishi Motors was arrested in Japan for plotting automobile imperfections just four years after the business admitted to an additional 20-year scheme that had shown the way to a then-substantial recall of 1 million sedans. We are confident that Mitsubishi does not want to be a superstar in a Gung Ho sequel.
