Nissan Will Axe 10 Percent of Its Products Following a Catastrophic First Half of 2019
https://jalopnik.com/nissan-will-axe...g-a-1836834390Nissan’s plan for the future includes the unceremonious dumping of about 12,500 employees, and a reduction in production capacity by about 10% within the next two years.
Fiat hasn't improved Chrysler's image.
Renault hasn't improved Nissan's image.
Those views seem somewhat justified, too!
I have a friend that always says, "Sewers always suck down, never up!" If you hang with the wrong crowd, they are most likely going to drag you down with them. Merge with an inferior company - guess what might happen?
I think we should blame all this on Scotty Kilmer! A day seldom goes by without Scotty bashing Fiat-Chrysler & Renault-Nissan.
On a more serious note: It really comes down to leadership. Most things start at the top whether we want to admit it or not. If you read any automotive news at all, it's quite apparent Nissan has had major leadership issues. It's not a surprise this company is struggling. It lacks direction!
If I was in the market for a small car, SUV, hybrid, pickup truck, etc..., I wouldn't even bother visiting a Nissan showroom. Unless things change soon, I see Hyundai/KIA surpassing Nissan. Combined (Hyundai/KIA) aren't that far behind them already.
