TOKYO: Nissan Motor Co said today it had discovered misconduct related to exhaust emissions and fuel economy measurements in final vehicle inspections at most of its factories in Japan.

The Japanese automaker said in a statement it had found that the testing environments for emissions and fuel economy were not in line with requirements, and that inspection reports were based on altered measurements.

Nissan said it would take appropriate action to prevent future occurrence.

The company did not say how many cars were affected by the falsifications, which come after a damaging scandal over subpar inspections last year. — AFP/Reuters
