Mitsubishi Motors office raided over fuel economy tests

Mitsubishi

Japanese officials have raided an office of Mitsubishi Motors following the revelation that the carmaker had falsified its fuel economy data. The officials searched its plant in the central Japanese city of Okazaki.

Mitsubishi has admitted that employees altered data to flatter mileage rates on more than 600,000 vehicles.

A government spokesman said they were treating it as an “extremely serious case” and that it had ordered the company to submit a full report. The authorities have set 27 April as the deadline for Mitsubishi Motors to hand over the report on the inaccurate testing.

Volkswagen to buy back 600,000 cars in framework deal over emissions scandal

Volkswagen, the US government and private lawyers have reached a deal for the automaker to buy back some of the nearly 600,000 diesel cars that cheat on emissions tests and spend just over $1bn to compensate owners, according to a person briefed on the matter. The “deal in principle” includes a maximum amount of spending, but the final details, like how much each owner would get, are still being worked out, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the deal has not been made public.

Supermarket price war drives petrol stations to postwar low

The number of petrol stations in Britain has plunged to its lowest level in 70 years. Almost three forecourts closed every week last year, according to research published by the Energy Institute. This left just over 8,470 sites remaining. It was the fastest rate of closure for at least three years and represents a dramatic decline since the early 1950s when about 40,000 filling stations crowded the roadsides. Experts said that the drop was due to falling oil prices combined with a supermarket price war that has seen many independent retailers priced out of business.
