Most of us who live in a somewhat urban area have seen the cleanest air in decades but sadly I think people will like at the price of gas (low right now), the price of the car (gas car is cheaper they do not think of maintenence and long term costs) and stay with gassers as well. Seems like such a good chance to show what an EV world woud look like.

The EV world is coming in more permanent fashion. The improvements in battery technology isn't slowing down. 8% a year. Each year EVs become more compelling and more oil wells dry up. The big oil companies investment portfolio shows a trillion dollars in renewable energy investments. Much less is being invested in oil now. https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-Gene ... arket.html

Thanks for the link. COVID-19 for sure woke the pre baby boomers about air pollution increasingly as a factor in premature deaths. Baby boomers are dying too fast to be a large force for renewable energy.

This does not look good for Nissan.

The full impact of this pandemic will be a wild card for Nissan and other auto makers for the next several years. Before the pandemic Carlos said Nissan would be in bankruptcy by 2022. Where he has inside info or if it is just sour grapes time will tell.

If his claims of mistreatment are true then I wouldn't expect any success from the corrupt and spineless leadership he left behind.

From what I was just reading this evening it sounds like Nissan is at sea in a storm with broken mask and ripped off rudder. Maybe Nissan should have had a game plan before kicking Carlos to the curb. If he is as evil as Nissan now claims why did they not remove him years ago?

I read yesterday Nissan plans to downsize soon by cutting another 20,000 employees world wide but the article did not talk any details but I gathered there are no details yet. Nissan did say planning was hard because they are currently clueless as to what sales projection to use due to the impact of the virus pandemic stopping most sales at this time. A lot of Nissan rental cars are expected to hit the market soon as well.

Indeed there's been speculation in the media that Nissan will cut 20K jobs but Nissan corporate hasn't announced that yet. We'll see.

And, there's been this:
