The emissions scandal surrounding Mitsubishi Motors has widened as the firm said further models may be involved.
At a press conference, the company’s president Tetsuro Aikawa said there may have been more car models that incorrectly measured fuel efficiency data than initially thought.
Meanwhile, US safety authorities have asked the company for more information.
Shares in the company have lost 40% of their value since the scandal emerged.
On Friday the stock closed at a record low of 504 yen.
So far, at least 600,000 Japanese vehicles have been affected in four models: Mitsubishi’s ek Wagon and eK Space, as well as Nissan’s Dayz and Dayz Roox, which Mitsubishi produces for Nissan.
“We believe there were four car models where we saw improper data breaches and we believe there were other car models that were not properly measured,” said President Tesuro Aikawa.
Fuel efficiency measurement issue has a media spot light.
“We are trying to sort this out.”
