Zerohedge is a Russian propaganda outlet. Maybe true, maybe misleading, maybe a stinking lie.

Is Kyodo news out of Japan also propaganda, or are they legitimate?

If true, that's really sad.

For those who didn't follow Nissan's history before Ghosn came to power, see https://www.titantalk.com/threads/nissa ... tar.21966/. He did a hell of a job turning around the company but ever since his arrest and ousting, things have really gone downhill w/Nissan but some of that started before the arrest. The Nissan-Renault Alliance relationship has apparently become very strained.

I suspect the company would be in better shape if there weren't these distractions.

The Reuters News service is reporting the same although they may be relying on the Kyodo news service.
This move is on top of an earlier decision to slash 5,000 jobs

Somebody has to pay for the battery issue mismanagement.
Nissan, so you think you saved tons of money by f-ing over your customers (specifically EV adopters)?
Now get the payout you truly deserved.

I think that punishments should fit the crime, and, equally important, have something to do with the crime.

As an EV adopter, I'm grateful for Nissan's efforts. Not perfect, but better than the competition. Save your ire for Fiat, Ford, GM, Honda, Toyota and such.

Telsa doesn't work for physical reasons, and I dislike the reality distortion zone.
