Will the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests work? Or, will automotive manufactures find a way to cheat the new tests (again)?
The Volkswagen Emissions Scandal brought to light the stark realisation that car manufactures are capable of – and happy to – cheat.

Many are understandably wondering whether the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests will really work.
We’ve been waiting for it to happen – several other manufactures have already been investigated by the authorities on suspicion of misleading emissions data following on from the Volkswagen scandal.
Following internal investigations, Mitsubishi Motors has admitted their employees have manipulated emissions data which has led to their offices in Japan being raided by the authorities.
In a scandal that has an almost identical feel to the Volkswagen Emissions scandal, bosses at the Japanese car giants have released statements confirming that employees have misrepresented data.
