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.

Auditors attempting to assess how down and dirty Carlos Ghosn’s spending habits were have reportedly become very interested in a YouTube video of a party held at the Palace of Versailles in 2014.

Nissan-Renault Relationship Has Not Improved, Despite Assurances to the Contrary

If Nissan and Renault were a living, breathing couple, they’d be the duo all of your other friends whisper about.
