Vehicle models in Vietnam unaffected by power output data manipulation in Toyota subsidiary

January 30, 2024

Vehicle models distributed in Vietnam are not among those affected by power output data manipulation from a Toyota Motor Corp. subsidiary, according to the Japanese automotive manufacturer’s website and internal communications. In response to the scandal, Toyota on Monday announced the suspension of vehicle shipments with the affected engines. The 10 affected models, including the Hiace, Fortuner, and Innova, were sold in various markets, including Japan, Europe, and the Middle East. The data manipulation dates back to 2017, according to Toyota Industries, when the company doctored fuel injection volume in engine output tests to enhance the appearance of torque. Local media claimed that a third-party panel’s report blamed the corporate culture at Toyota Industries, citing a lack of will to actively increase compliance.
