The share price of Mitsubishi motors had a great drop and still there is no chance of it to rise up again.

The issue came to light after Nissan Motor Co, which markets a model made by Mitsubishi, found a discrepancy in fuel efficiency test data.
JPMorgan auto analyst Akira Kishimoto estimated the cheating could cost Mitsubishi more than 50 billion yen ($450 million), including payments to consumers, the costs of replacing parts, and compensation to Nissan.
In addition, there can be a huge loss of sales from around the world.
Japan's transport minister have told the company to submit the full test systematic report within a week.
