Nissan admits falsifying exhaust emissions data on cars made in Japan
Nissan's share price dropped 4.56 percent to 1,003.5 yen after it said it would make a statement on exhaust measurements following a report of falsification. It made the statement after the market had closed. The firm vowed a "full and comprehensive investigation" into its latest fake data scandal.
Nissan admitted today that data on exhaust emissions and fuel economy had been deliberately "altered", dealing a blow to the Japanese car giant's efforts to recover trust after an inspection scandal last year. Image source: Reuters
