Scandal-stricken car brand fires director to save itself

The Toyota-owned Daihatsu brand is now trying to save itself by firing its director and chairman.

Both the director and the chairman of the board of the scandal-ridden Daihatsu brand, which Toyota owns, have been replaced. Fired on gray paper, in other words.

The firings come after it was revealed last year that the brand has been cheating and manipulating the emissions from its passenger cars for 30 years.

Reuters writes that.

However, Toyota is not much better itself. Recently, board chairman Akio Toyoda, who has also been the brand's director, had to apologize for fiddling with data at the parent company. Read more about it here .

But back at Daihatsu, they are now trying to save the business by replacing the absolute top positions.

According to Reuters, however, Toyota denies that there are layoffs. Instead, it says that 'it is by mutual agreement' that Daihatsu is now changing.

However, it is not only with passenger cars that data is fiddled with in the Toyota group. The Hino Motors truck division was already caught cheating in 2022.
