    Toyota said that during the latest test, it was discovered that the horsepower output performance of engines was measured using electronic control units with software that was different from those used for mass production. Such was done, TMC stated , “so that results could measure to make values appear smoother with less variation.”

    The Japanese automaker noted that owners of the affected models need not to stop using their vehicles as the company firm that the products meet engine performance output standards

    “However, we deeply apologize to our customers who have been supporting affected vehicles and waiting for a long time, and also to all other stakeholders for the significant inconvenience and concern that this has caused,” Toyota said in the statement.

    Further, TMC said that TICO will provide detailed explanations to authorities regarding the new findings and “proceed with measures under their guidance in the hopes of regaining the trust of customers and other stakeholders as a manufacturer worthy of certification.”

    “We recognize the gravity of the fact that the repeated certification irregularities at TICO, following those at Daihatsu, have shaken the very foundations of the company as an automobile manufacturer,” TMC said.

    Earlier, the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism has officially revoked the model certification of select models from Toyota, Daihatsu, and Mazda
