Automotive Politics: Saikawa Stays as Nissan’s CEO, Renault’s Next Move

Nissan’s Hiroto Saikawa appears to be staying on as CEO, despite claiming late last year that he would soon step down. While not sensational news in itself, the decision is underpinned by growing animosity between the automaker and alliance partner Renault. Back in March, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance was doing damage control following the arrest of […] The post Automotive Politics: Saikawa Stays as Nissan’s CEO, Renault’s Next Move appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Nissan is bracing for a bad year. On Tuesday, the automaker held a press conference at its headquarters in Yokohama, Japan, to tell the world that it’s forecasting a 28-percent decline in operating profit this year. While that sounds bad, it comes on the heels of the company’s financial results for the 12-month period ending March […] The post Nissan’s Bad Year Greenlit for a Sequel appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Carlos Ghosn Re-released From Japanese Jail

The embattled ex-patriarch of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has posted an additional $4.5 million in bail. Beyond some new indictments regarding his alleged misappropriation of corporate funds, not much has changed regarding the case.

Nissan Supports Notre Dame Restoration, Ditto for Relationship With Renault

Nissan Motor Co. has pledged a donation of 100,000 euros ($112,000) for the restoration of the fire-kissed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. However, the company’s act of kindness is overshadowed by its rather interesting timing. Nissan’s relationship with partner Renault and the French government has grown strained since the arrest of former Alliance boss Carlos Ghosn — […] The post Nissan Supports Notre Dame Restoration, Ditto for Relationship With Renault appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ghosn Weirdness Intensifies

Happy to relegate Carlos Ghosn to the past, Renault has announced its former CEO will soon leave the company’s executive board, along with Cherie Blair, wife of former British prime minister Tony Blair. Annette Winkler, the ex-head of Daimler’s Smart brand, will be proposed as the new director at the company’s annual meeting in June, according […] The post Ghosn Weirdness Intensifies appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Eternal Underdog: Mitsubishi May Not Sell Enough Cars in the U.S. to Worry About Tariffs

While still an industrial giant on the global scene, Mitsubishi is a shadow of its former self in the United States. After leaning a bit too hard on its status as a value brand, annual deliveries went from about 346,000 units to just 58,000 between 2002 and 2012. Meaningful progress has been made since then, but […] The post Eternal Underdog: Mitsubishi May Not Sell Enough Cars in the U.S. to Worry About Tariffs appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Is Mitsubishi Finally Poised for a Comeback?

While Mitsubishi Motors isn’t in the same dire straits it once was, the brand has only recently stopped hemorrhaging sales after doing so for over a decade.
