Mitsubishi Motors Corp. denies a newspaper report from Japan which says the company has developed a new diesel engine that can drastically reduce emissions. “We are still developing it, just as other manufacturers are doing,” says a Mitsubishi spokesperson. Japan's heavy truck makers are developing new reduced-emission diesels as they gear up for a Tokyo mandate that will require all diesel vehicles to be equipped with particulate filters starting in 2003.
