South Korea’s Environment Ministry has banned sales of 2 Nissan Motor models after the company submitted falsified emissions data.
The ministry said on Monday that it canceled the certification of the Infinity Q50 and Qashqai models.
The ministry fined Nissan’s South Korean arm about 2.65 million dollars. It also filed a complaint with prosecutors.
Nissan Korea has already admitted using fabricated emissions figures. It says that it respects the ministry’s decision and will sincerely accept an investigation by prosecutors if requested. (NEWSONJAPAN)
