None of the mini-car models at the centre of this week's Mitsubishi false fuel mileage admission are sold in New Zealand.
However the parent company has found the same testing method called into question this week has been applied to other models manufactured for the Japanese domestic market.
Because of the seriousness of the issue Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is also investigating products manufactured for overseas markets.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia said this investigation would be conducted by a committee of experts operating independently of Mitsubishi Motors.
In the meantime the local companies will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia (MMAL) has been informed of a certification process issue affecting four mini-car models manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors for the Japanese domestic market.
