Toyota announced that Masahiro Inoue, who presently oversees Toyota’s Latin America and Caribbean division, will assume the role of Daihatsu president on March 1.

After decades-long, embarrassing safety test fraud, Japanese automaker Toyota named a new head for its Daihatsu unit on Tuesday.

The main manufacturer of well-known “kei” minicars acknowledged in December that it had been falsifying test results since at least 1989 for 64 models, some of which were marketed as Toyota vehicles.

Toyota announced that Masahiro Inoue, who presently oversees Toyota’s Latin America and Caribbean division, will assume the role of Daihatsu president on March 1.

The company also announced that Soichiro Okudaira, the current president, will resign and that the chairmanship will be eliminated.

“Daihatsu will change its management structure to steadily implement measures to prevent similar problems from happening and promote the building of foundations for the future,” Toyota president Koji Sato told a press conference.

The firm added that it believed the “root of the certification irregularities was that Daihatsu placed a burden on its workplaces that exceeded their capacities.”

Daihatsu halted all plant activities after making its statement in December, however, some have since resumed.
