Moltissimo dipenderà dalla futura struttura dell’alleanza RNM, il management Renault è anche pronto a ridurre quote ed influenza nella casa nipponica ma vuole accesso libero alle piattaforme. Nonostante le 2 case siano legate da ormai 20 anni la condivisione dei pianali va a rilento, ancora oggi non è completa.
Renault sta analizzando approfonditamente la presenza in Cina e in India, entrambi i mercati non hanno dato i risultati sperati.
Nella gamma la Twingo non avrà eredi diretti, forse ci sarà la Kwid elettrica. Talisman, Espace e Grand Scenic non dovrebbero avere eredi. La Koleos è in bilico.
E’ già stata approvata invece una nuova B-suv più grande della Captur.

Nissan's new CEO, Makoto Uchida, outlined a plan of attack for rebuilding the troubled automaker by reviving its U.S. business, cracking down on costs and increasing revenue through fresh product and next-generation technologies.

As for relations with estranged partner Renault, Uchida said he would focus on short-term gains that benefit all members of the Renault, Nissan, Mitsubishi alliance while protecting Nissan’s autonomy. He said he is not focused on changing the companies’ cross-shareholdings for now.

"Nissan has enjoyed growth over the years thanks to the alliance," Uchida said at a press briefing on Monday in his first comments as CEO. "I intend to continue our alliance efforts while maintaining Nissan’s independence."

Uchida’s comments were delivered at Nissan’s global headquarters and came day after he took office.

Uchida takes the helm at at a critical turning point as Nissan battles slumping profits, an aging product portfolio and soured relations with 20-year French partner Renault.

Uchida is part of a younger generation of new leaders tapped to tackle those challenges and revive Japan’s No. 2 automaker from the scandal that enveloped it following last year’s stunning arrest of former Chairman Carlos Ghosn on financial misconduct allegations.

Uchida said Nissan must still reform parts of its corporate culture and blamed much of sales and profit trouble on the unrealistic goals set by Ghosn during his time at the helm.

“By trying to hit over-ambitious goals, we caused a rapid decline in our performance,” Uchida said. “We have to set objectives that are challenging but achievable and understandable.”

Joining the 53-year-old Uchida on Nissan’s new leadership team is just-appointed COO Ashwani Gupta, 49, a former executive with experience at Nissan, Renault and Mitsubishi Motors. Backing them is Vice COO Jun Seki, 58, in charge of performance recovery and product planning.

Uchida replaced interim president Yasuhiro Yamauchi, who was selected in September to preside during the search for a successor to former CEO Hiroto Saikawa, who resigned that month.

Nissan’s board says Uchida’s top priority is to resuscitate profits.

He inherits a midterm revival plan from Saikawa.

That roadmap that involves cutting 12,500 jobs worldwide, consolidating the lineup and cutting global production capacity to 6.6 million vehicles a year from 7.2 million. Saikawa’s plan also calls for rebuilding U.S. sales to 1.4 million vehicles in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023.

It targets parent company operating profit margin of 6 percent that year.

Uchida said he would reexamine that plan with Gupta and Seki after they settle into their roles.

Uchida said the U.S. recovery is making progress, without giving details.

Uchida aims to control costs by streamlining investments and front-line operations. He plans to increase revenue by introducing new technologies and vehicles, such as a next-generation, full-electric crossover.

“The most important pillar of the business transformation is growth through new products, new technologies,” he said. “I want our employees to feel proud that they work for Nissan.”

Nissan’s operating profit fell 70 percent in the July-September quarter, following a 99 percent plunge in the April-June period. For the current fiscal year ending March 31, the company expects operating profit and net income to both fall by more than half.

Operating profit margin is forecast to dwindle to 1.4 percent compared with the 2.7 percent to recorded in the previous fiscal year ended March 31.

Another priority for Nissan and the alliance is streamlining r&d and product development.

Japanese media reported on Dec. 1 that Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi are in talks to set up joint venture dedicated to next-generation technologies, including electrified drivetrains and artificial intelligence. Executives from the companies discussed the idea last week in France.

At the same meeting, the companies decided to create a new position of general secretary for the Alliance Operating Board. That person will report to the alliance board and the companies’ CEOs and be in charge of coordinating major alliance projects.

“The board members all agreed on programs to significantly enhance and accelerate the operational efficiency of the alliance for the benefit of the three companies, including action plans to maximize the contribution of the Alliance to support each company’s strategic plan and operating profit,” the companies said in a statement.

The secretary general will be named in the coming days, they said.

French media reported that French-Lebanese engineer Hadi Zablit has been picked for the post, French media reported. Zablit, 49, is currently the alliance's business development chief responsible for the development of Common Module Family A-segment platform, new technologies partnerships, mobility services and product planning synchronization.

Renault, which has a 43.4 percent stake in Nissan after it saved the Japanese automaker from financial ruin two decades ago, has for years been pursuing closer ties with its bigger partner, only to be rebuffed by Nissan.

Il nuovo ceo di Nissan ha fornito i primi dettagli sulla ristrutturazione del gruppo. Molti sforzi verranno compiuti per risanare la regione Nord America. Si è parlato di ampliamento della partnership con Renault ma non di fusione.

TOKYO -- Veteran Renault engineer Hadi Zablit was named general secretary of the automaker's alliance with Nissan to accelerate business efficiencies across the companies.

Zablit, 49, is now a senior vice president of business development at the alliance.

He takes up the new position on Monday and will focus on maximizing the contribution of the alliance's scale to the profits of each company, the automakers said in a statement.

The announcement comes as Nissan and Renault try to mend ties amid falling profits a year after the arrest of former boss Carlos Ghosn. Nissan brought in a new executive team this week, while Renault is set to choose a new CEO in the coming weeks.

Renault has held a 43 percent stake in Nissan since the French automaker rescued Nissan from a financial crisis two decades ago. Their partnership has focused on using their combined scale to lower costs for research and development, procurement and production.

Both automakers and their junior partner Mitsubishi were shaken by the arrest of former chairman Ghosn last November on allegations of financial misconduct, which he denies.

This year, Renault tried to forge deeper ties with Nissan, only to be rebuffed by the Japanese automaker.

This week, Nissan's new CEO, Makoto Uchida, told reporters that the alliance had "to benefit each of its partners in terms of revenue and profit."

Uchida said closer capital ties with Renault were not a focus in the short term.

In a statement, the alliance said that it would announce further details of its efficiency plans in coming weeks.


Renault-Nissan says Zablit will focus on maximizing the contribution of the alliance's scale to the profits of each company.
Zablit, a French-Lebanese engineer, started his career at Renault in 1994 as a production process engineer in the powertrain division. He left in 2000 to work for Boston Consulting Group where he was the lead in the automotive sector for Europe, and co-lead for worldwide innovation practice.

Zablit returned to Renault in 2017. In his current role at Renault he is responsible for the development of the Common Module Family A-segment platform, automaker and new technology partnerships, mobility services, product planning synchronization and alliance investments.

L’alleanza RNM ha nominato un segretario generale per velocizzare la cooperazione tecnica tra i 3 costruttori. Il nuovo management giapponese sembra meno bastian contrario di prima però l’idea di una fusione tra i 2 gruppi non viene neanche presa in considerazione dai nipponici. L’urgenza più immediata è il rilancio di Nissan.

Renault's board wants Luca de Meo, who heads Volkswagen Group's Seat brand, to become the automaker's next CEO, French reports said.

De Meo won out over Patrick Koller, CEO of the supplier Faurecia, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Les Echos.

The board chose de Meo as their preferred candidate at its meeting on Tuesday, the reports said.

De Meo, 52, won the support of the French government, Renault's biggest shareholder with a 15 percent stake, AFP said.

However, a stumbling block to de Meo's appointment could be a non-compete clause he has with VW Group, Les Echos said.

De Meo, an Italian executive, emerged as favorite for the Renault CEO post because of his success in making the Spanish brand profitable. He also speaks French and started his career at Renault before working for Toyota and Fiat.

Renault's interim CEO, Clotilde Delbos, the automaker's finance boss, was not considered for the CEO job because she is relatively new to the industry and has only a financial background, reports said.

Renault has been searching for a new CEO since its board ousted Thierry Bollore in mid-October, as the French automaker and its alliance partner, Nissan, cleared out managers closely associated with the Carlos Ghosn era.

Il board di Renault avrebbe espresso la decisione di assumere De Meo come ceo di Renault ma non sarà facile dato che il manager milanese ha un contratto di non concorrenza con Vw.

Nissan will stop offering diesels in its next Qashqai compact SUV, a source close to automaker said, as it puts electrification at the forefront of its European strategy.

Along with gasoline-powered variants, Nissan will offer the third-generation Qashqai, which is due to be revealed next September, with the automaker’s e-Power system. The serial hybrid drivetrain, which is popular in Japan, lets a car function like an electric vehicle because its combustion engine is only used to charge the battery.

The Qashqai may also offer a plug-in hybrid option using a system from Renault-Nissan alliance partner Mitsubishi, media reports have said.

Nissan’s move away from diesels comes as European demand for the powertrain has declined to roughly 30 percent now from 45 percent in 2017, according to figures from industry association ACEA. Nissan's share is also about 30 percent now, down from 47 percent two years ago, according to JATO Dynamics.

“We have seen a significant drop in diesel,” Nissan Europe Chairman Gianluca de Ficchy told Automotive News Europe. “We are adapting ourselves to follow that trend.”

De Ficchy wants more than 40 percent of Nissan’s sales in Europe to be electrified models by 2022 to make sure it avoids EU fines that loom for automakers that fail to comply with tougher emissions regulations that start to take effect next year.

“We assumed the overall electrified market will be about 20 percent to 24 percent by 2022, but we want 42 percent in Europe,” he said.

Along with helping to meet CO2 targets, a high penetration of electrified models will be good for Nissan’s brand image, de Ficchy said.

“If you want a sustainable business model in Europe that meets both corporate and customer regulations, you need to be far above that average,” he said.

There are risks, however, the come with pulling the diesel from the Qashqai, which competes in a segment that had the highest number of diesel sales through 10 months, 621,242, and where models with the powertrain accounted for 44 percent of overall sales, according to JATO.

Switching to gasoline variants is difficult for customers in SUV segments because they are not as efficient, which results in a higher fuel bill.

The Volkswagen Tiguan, which overtook the Qashqai in terms of 10-month sales to lead the compact SUV sector, was also Europe’s top-selling diesel model overall through October.

When Nissan makes it move away from offering diesels in the segment it will join Toyota and Honda, which don’t offer the powertrain in the RAV4 and CR-V, respectively. Both brands focus on offering their compact SUVs as gasoline-electric hybrids instead.

Niente diesel per la prossima Qashqai.

Ghosn sarebbe uscito dal Giappone riparando in Libano.
In attesa di notizie più precise, mi chiedo se non sia stato lasciato “evadere” dai domiciliari cui era ristretto per evitare l’imbarazzo che un processo pubblico avrebbe potuto creare a Nissan e allo stesso governo nipponico.

Carlos Ghosn has spent more than a year trapped in a Japanese legal odyssey that’s transfixed the automotive world and thrown his life into chaos. Now, having pulled off a daring escape from Japan to Lebanon, he’s an international fugitive.

But the executive is also free to speak his mind fully, without legal filtering, for the first time since his surprise arrest on the tarmac at Haneda airport back in November 2018. And this much seems likely: The former head of Nissan Motor Co. and Renault SA has stories to tell and scores to settle.

At stake is Ghosn’s entire legacy. Will he be remembered as the brilliant, cost-cutting manager who rescued Nissan and built one of mightiest auto alliances in the industry? Or will he be just another name in a hall of infamy of white-collar fugitives?

Ghosn said in his statement from Lebanon on Tuesday that he would “finally communicate freely with the media, and look forward to starting next week.” So get ready for what’s likely to be a blistering public relations assault, starting with an expected press conference, that will rattle some cages in both Japan and France.

Based on past statements by Ghosn and his wife Carole, here’s a guide to what may be in store.

Japan’s Legal System

“I have not fled justice,” Ghosn said in the first emailed statement after his remarkable exit from Japan. “I have escaped injustice and political persecution.” An even more robust indictment of the nation’s legal system is likely in the weeks ahead.

Ghosn’s arrest revived long-standing concerns about the fairness of Japan’s judicial system, where prosecutors can grill suspects repeatedly without their lawyers present and enjoy an almost 100% conviction rate.

Under the terms of the executive’s bail, the courts restricted contact with his family. In his Dec. 31 statement, Ghosn called the Japanese justice system rigged and said his “basic human rights” had been denied, including the presumption of innocence. Those are issues that he almost certainly would have put on the world stage had his case come to trial.

Unholy Trinity

For months, Ghosn’s attorneys have been arguing that all of the charges against their client were bogus, the result of a broad conspiracy among nationalistic Nissan officials, Japanese prosecutors and the government itself.

The goal, according to Ghosn, was to smear him in order to prevent the executive from further integrating Nissan and France’s Renault, a plan that threatened the Japanese carmaker’s autonomy and was vehemently opposed in the highest echelons of Tokyo officialdom.

Corporate Assassins

In April, Ghosn was detained before a scheduled tell-all press conference, prompting his camp to release a pre-recorded video for such an eventuality.

In it, Ghosn spoke of several Nissan executives whom he claimed turned on him to advance their own interests. The original video named the people; that segment was edited out in the version released to the public.

“I’m talking here about a few executives who, obviously for their own interests and for their own selfish fears, are creating a lot of value destruction. Names? You know them,” Ghosn hinted in his video. Now, Ghosn may really be ready to disclose names.

Nissan’s Slide

In his video, Ghosn also criticized Nissan’s management for the company’s poor performance, saying they lost sight of the need to move the alliance with Renault forward.

“I’m worried because obviously the performance of Nissan is declining, but also I’m worried because I don’t think there is any vision for the alliance being built,” Ghosn said in the video.

Nissan’s earnings have tumbled to the lowest level in a decade and the stock was the worst performer on the Bloomberg World Auto Manufacturers Index last year (the second-worst was Renault), so he may hit that note again.

French Establishment

In several interviews, Ghosn’s wife, Carole, lashed out at the French establishment for not doing more to help the former head of Renault, who also is a French citizen.

In an interview with the Journal du Dimanche, she said President Emmanuel Macron hasn’t answered her pleas for help. “The silence from the Elysee Palace is deafening,” she said. “I thought France was a country that defended the presumption of innocence. They’ve all forgotten everything Carlos did for France’s economy and for Renault.”

It remains to be seen which talking points Ghosn will hit the hardest. Yet this much is clear: He is a fighter, and he has everything to lose if he can’t pull ahead in the PR war. That suggests his approach won’t be subtle.

Dopo una fuga rocambolesca e piena d’interrogativi (si dice che sia fuggito in una cassa e che sia passato attraverso la Turchia) Ghosn potrebbe parlare e creare moltissimi imbarazzi. Già sua moglie Carole ha lanciato molti strali contro il governo francese, reo di non aver praticamente aiutato il marito durante la carcerazione. Secondo me quest’ accusa è piuttosto fondata, il governo giapponese ha organizzato insieme a Nissan una trappola per fare fuori Ghosn e far deragliare la fusione con Renault. Il governo Macron ha fatto solo qualche debole lamentela pubblica riguardo alla carcerazione preventiva ma successivamente si è focalizzata nel tentare di salvare l’alleanza Renault-Nissan. Le lunghe trattative tra Nissan e Renault per permettere la sopravvivenza dell’alleanza potrebbero subire un colpo mortale dalle dichiarazioni di Ghosn, la paralisi dei due gruppi ha avuto effetti pesanti. Se Nissan e Renault non stessero litigando da un anno ormai FCA sarebbe stata inglobata, invece gli italoamericani sono entrati nell’orbita di PSA.
Ghosn è fuggito in Libano perché ha la cittadinanza, ha ancora contatti e soprattutto il paese mediorientale non ha accordi di estradizione con il Giappone. Ghosn potrebbe tornare in Francia ma rischierebbe l’estradizione.
Secondo me Netflix ne farà un film.

Fossi in lui starei attento a cosa dire riguardo la Francia (che si è comportata male). Parigi ha ancora molti addentellati in Libano e non sono tipi da farsi molti scrupoli ad eliminare alla fonte eventuali problemi.

Eh però.....

Ghosn, la Turchia indaga sulla fuga. Il governo francese: "Se verrà qui non sarà estradato"
Le autorità di Ankara al lavoro per accertare eventuali falle nella sicurezza. Arrestate sette persone, tra cui quattro piloti. Il segretario di stato all'economia Agnes Pannier-Runacher: "Parigi non estrada mai i suoi cittadini"

Sotto il cielo di Beirut continua la ricerca della verità sulla fuga di Ghosn. Sicuramente l’ex capo di RNM è uscito dal suo appartamento di Tokyo, si è recato a Osaka su un treno pubblico, è entrato nell’aeroporto con il proprio passaporto francese ed una volta imbarcato (si dice nascosto in una cassa da strumenti musicali) è volato verso Ankara insieme a 2 contractors americani, esperti in fughe organizzate.
Le autorità giapponesi sono furenti e hanno spiccato un mandato di arresto nei confronti della moglie Carole.
Non si sa ancora se Ghosn tornerà in Francia, domani terrà una conferenza stampa. In primavera poche ore prima di una conferenza stampa i giapponesi lo riarrestarono, generando molti sospetti.
I giornali francesi e giapponesi riportano preoccupazioni sia in Renault che in Nissan su cosa Ghosn potrebbe dire. Ci sarebbero difficoltà per assumere De Meo in Renault mentre il nuovo ceo di Nissan Uchida starebbe incontrando molte resistenze interne riguardo il piano di ristrutturazione.

De Meo ha lasciato Seat, dovrebbe diventare CEO di Renault ed in 2 anni diventare capo di tutta l’alleanza RNM (se esisterà ancora). Un bel salto di carriera.

tive former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn spoke to the media in Beirut on Wednesday after fleeing to Beirut last month from Tokyo, where he had been awaiting trial on charges of financial misconduct. Here are some quotes:

RENAULT-NISSAN INTEGRATION

"I was ready to retire before June 2018... I unfortunately accepted this offer to continue to integrate the two companies (Renault and Nissan)."Some of my Japanese friends thought that the only way to get rid of the influence of Renault on Nissan, was to get rid of me."

'A HANDFUL OF ... VINDICTIVE INDIVIDUALS'

"My unimaginable ordeal is the result of a handful of unscrupulous, vindictive individuals."

BASELESS CHARGES

"The charges against me are baseless."Why have they extended the investigation timeline, why have they rearrested me? Why were they so intent on preventing me from talking and setting out my facts?"Why have they spent 14 months trying to break my spirit, barring any contact with my wife?"(One reason) was that Nissan performance unfortunately started to decline at the beginning of 2017...in October 2016 I decided to remove myself from Nissan ... because I signed a deal with Mitsubishi. I moved to Mitsubishi as chairman of the board."

'UNMISSABLE' CHANCE TO ALLY WITH FIAT CHRYSLER

"In 2017, the alliance was the number one automotive group. Three companies growing, profitable. We were preparing to add Fiat Chrysler to the group because I was negotiating with John Elkann for Fiat Chrysler to join."The alliance missed the unmissable which is Fiat Chrysler. That is unbelievable, they go with PSA. How can you miss that huge opportunity to become the dominant player in the industry?"I had contact with FCA. We had a lot of understanding, we have very good dialogue, unfortunately I was arrested before we could come to a conclusion. (Ghosn had planned a meeting for January 2019 to try to conclude the deal.)"It's a great opportunity for PSA, it's a big waste for Renault."

NO MORE ALLIANCE

"They turned the wrong page because there is no more profit, there is no more growth, there is no more strategic initiative, no more technology, no more alliance. What we see today is a masquerade of an alliance."

INNOCENT

"I am innocent of all the charges."

"I left Japan because I wanted justice. It is the only way to reestablish my reputation. If I don't get it in Japan, I will get it somewhere else."I escaped because I had zero chance of a fair trial.""'You are going to die in Japan, or you are going to have to get out.'"I felt like the hostage of a country I served for 17 years."

DEPRIVATION, INTERROGATION

"I was brutally taken from my work as I knew it, ripped from my work, my family and my friends."It is impossible to express the depth of that deprivation and my profound appreciation to be able to be reunited with my family and loved ones."(I was) interrogated for up eight hours a day without any lawyers present."'It will get worse for you if you don't just confess', the prosecutor told me repeatedly."

HERE TO CLEAR MY NAME

"I am not here to talk about how I left Japan. ... I am here to talk about why. I am here to shed light on a system that violates the most basic (human rights)."I am here to clear my name. These allegations are untrue and I should never have been arrested in the first place."

PLAN NOW?

"I am used to what you call 'Mission Impossible'. When I went to Japan in 1999, they said 'You will never make it.'"I can do a lot and I want to clear my name."You can expect me in the next weeks to take some initiatives."

RED NOTICE

An Interpol red notice alerts police worldwide about fugitives wanted internationally.

"There is a red notice that the Japanese have sent through Interpol. I don't consider myself as a prisoner in Lebanon. I prefer this prison to the one before."I am ready to stay a long time in Lebanon, but I am going to fight because I have to clear my name."

GREG KELLY

"(Former Nissan colleague) Greg Kelly, an honorable man. ...Greg remains a victim of the Japanese hostage justice system."

PRESUMED GUILTY

"I was presumed guilty before the eyes of the world."

DECISION TO FLEE

"This (escape) was the most difficult decision of my life but I was facing a system where the conviction rate is 99.4%, and I believe this number is far higher for foreigners."

MARKET CAP TUMBLES

"The market cap decrease of Nissan since my arrest is more than $10 billion. They lost more than $40 million a day during all of this. The market cap of Renault went down since my arrest by 5 billion euros."

PROSECUTORS IN CONTROL

"I thought the boss was the judge, the boss was the prosecutor. The judge - very nice guy, very polite - but the prosecutors did what they want."

FROM ROLE MODEL TO DICTATOR

"For 17 years I was a role model in Japan. All of a sudden prosecutors in Japan (characterized me as a) 'cold, greedy, dictator'.""It's wrong, I like Japan, I like the people of Japan. Why Japan is repaying me with evil, for the good that I did to the country, I don't understand."

OFFERED DOUBLE PAY TO JOIN GM

"I made a mistake, I should have accepted the offer."

ACCUSATIONS

"There is no democratic country I know where you go to jail for this kind of accusation, even if they are correct."

CONSPIRACY

"I don't personally think the top level (of Japanese government) was involved."

TRIAL

"I would be ready to stand trial anywhere where I think I would have a fair trial."This was persecution. ... So I decided to take a risk, I wanted justice."I chose Lebanon for reasons that were more logistical than anything else."


Da automotive news le frasi più importanti della conferenza di Carlos Ghosn. L'alleanza di RNM con FCA era già pronta e se non fosse stato arrestato sarebbe arrivata nel gennaio 2019.
Ghosn ha aperto fuoco contro Nissan e il sistema giudiziario giapponese. Ha riconquistato la libertà ma imho non riuscirà mai a ripulirsi. La Francia ha fatto pochissimo per lui e farà ancora di meno pur di salvare l'alleanza.
Obama offrì il posto di ceo di Gm a Ghosn nel 2009 con uno stipendio doppio rispetto a quello di Nissan. Occasione persa.

Colpevolisti e innocentisti sul caso Ghosn continuano a dibattere sulla materia. Nello show di qualche giorno fa Ghosn non ha mostrato sufficiente evidenza per discolparsi dai 3 principali capi d'imputazione.
In questo articolo si mostra come manager giapponesi con responsabilità ben più gravi di Ghosn non abbiano subito alcuna conseguenza legale delle loro azioni.


As the Carlos Ghosn scandal unfolds with Hollywood-level kinds of drama and intrigue, it's refreshing to see the Japanese government launch its resources to rein in this fugitive from justice with all the righteous indignation of a nation that truly values international business ethics.

It's quite an about-face for a business culture that allowed the Takata exploding-airbag scandal that has claimed at least 24 lives, injured some 300 people and generated the largest safety recall in the history of the global auto industry. Another 10 million airbags were recalled in the U.S. last week, in fact.

But even more enlightening is how the prosecution and post-escape pursuit of Ghosn runs contrary to the Japanese practice of protecting its own business fugitives from justice, particularly when they stand accused by other countries of crimes that might not be considered serious in Japan.

Supply chain corruption

In the Takata scandal, the company in January 2017 agreed to pay a $1 billion U.S. criminal finefor its fraudulent conduct stemming from the lethal airbag defect. Three of its executives were charged with crimes in the U.S., but they stayed in Japan and never faced justice here.

"Warrants were issued at the time of the indictment and are still active," a U.S. Justice Department spokeswoman said in an email to Automotive News, declining further comment when asked about extradition efforts.

Perhaps more troubling is that for many years, dozens of Japanese auto supplierssystematically ripped off their customers — including their own affiliated Japanese automakers — in the U.S. and other countries. These suppliers allowed their sales executives to collude with competitors on the price of everything from ball bearings to wire harnesses. This institutional corruption resulted in countless billions of dollars in costs built into the price of light vehicles.

The antitrust arm of the Justice Department spent much of the past decade, during the Obama and Trump administrations, prosecuting these crimes. As of 2018, U.S. antitrust regulators said their work yielded $2.9 billion in fines and convictions of 46 suppliers and 32 executives. The vast majority of them are Japanese.

And while the companies themselves pleaded guilty and ponied up massive U.S. fines, as many as 20 individuals charged with crimes stayed in Japan, where they were protected from extradition. Some even kept their jobs. It's unclear whether the U.S. even attempted extradition — and very unlikely that it did. Japanese officials would have to cooperate in such a process.

To this day, these Japanese executives carry the same international fugitive status as Carlos Ghosn.

Ultimate irony

The ultimate irony here is that Ghosn was blamed, in part, for creating this culture of corruption in the Japanese supply chain when he saved Nissan in 1999. Back then, Ghosn helped cut Nissan's costs by dismantling the automaker's insular supplier keiretsu. He had the audacity to demand competitive bidding.

As my former Automotive News colleague Dave Guilford suggested during an interview with Ghosn in 2014, suppliers responded to Ghosn's demands by fixing prices.

"So it's my fault?" Ghosn responded, laughing. "That's a most original explanation."

"I had nothing against keiretsu," Ghosn added. "It was working for our competitors. But it wasn't working for us."

For the past year, Ghosn has been accused of a variety of economic crimes that, if true, might have cost Nissan tens of millions of dollars. If true. Yet Japan harbors fugitives who cost the entire auto industry far more, not to mention the loss of 24 lives, most of them in Hondas.

Japanese authorities may have very good reasons for their bitter, relentless pursuit of Ghosn and his family, but they might be wise to take a look in the mirror and stop protecting their own business fugitives from justice.

Ormai i giapponesi sembrano irremovibili. Anche un'idiota capirebbe che senza l'alleanza entrambe le case sarebbero con l'acqua alla gola, non solo Renault. In un momento storico come quello attuale andare da soli é folle ma il destino di Ghosn non fa ben sperare sulla ragionevolezza di Nissan. Chissà se finirà anche lei nelle braccia di Toyota.

Secondo me sì. Molte case giapponesi erano legate a case straniere (Suzuki con Gm e poi VW, Isuzu con Gm, Subaru con GM, Mazda con Ford, Mitsubishi con Chrysler, poi Volvo, poi DaimlerChrysler), quando questi legami sono stati sciolti il governo giapponese ha attuato una politica neo nazionalista salvando le più piccole mediante l'unione con Toyota.
In caso di abbandono da parte di Renault il governo Abe potrebbe o permettere una fusione con MMC (che però è un cadavere) oppure combinare Honda e Nissan.
Dal punto di vista dell'Antitrust non dovrebbe essere permesso però le politiche protezionistiche del puzzone stanno cambiando la mentalità degli affari in molte regioni del mondo.

The chief executive of Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) said Luca de Meo, who stepped down as chief executive of the German carmaker’s Spanish Seat brand this month, was probably in talks with French carmaker Renault (RENA.PA).

FILE PHOTO: SEAT President and CEO Luca de Meo poses during an interview at the SEAT car factory in Martorell, near Barcelona, Spain October 31, 2018. Picture taken October 31, 2018. REUTERS/Albert Gea
The Italian-born de Meo has served as chairman of Seat’s executive committee for four years, overseeing a resurgence in the Barcelona-based company’s sales and boosting its prominence within the Volkswagen group.

“We are very, very sad that Luca is leaving us because he played a very important role in the group,” Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess told CNBC on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos.

“He did a great job with us but we accepted that he’s going to leave and he’s probably in talks with Renault, that’s what he told us,” Diess said.

Renault declined to comment on the matter on Thursday.

Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard said this week that a new CEO would be named shortly.

De Meo has been in talks with Renault but faced a potential hurdle over a stringent non-compete clause in the contract, sources told Reuters previously.

The French state, which has a stake in Renault, has given its tacit backing to de Meo’s possible appointment.

“There’s no reason the state would oppose de Meo’s nomination,” a source at the economy ministry said.

In December, Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia cited anonymous sources as saying Renault - in the wake of the high-profile arrest of former boss Carlos Ghosn - had offered de Meo the job of chief executive.

Renault and its Japanese partner, Nissan Motor (7201.T), last week rejected media reports that their 20-year-old alliance was in danger of being dissolved.

La nomina di De Meo a capo di Renault dovrebbe essere annunciata a breve però è possibile che passino dei mesi prima che l’italiano possa iniziare a lavorare a Parigi. De Meo non era solo ceo di Seat ma era il capo di un progetto importantissimo per Vw, dal 2016 era responsabile per lo sviluppo del pianale MEBA0, cioè le elettriche con prezzi sotto i 20.000 euro. E’ probabile che Vw non voglia rivelare informazioni confidenziali.

Nel frattempo Senard vuole presentare a fine gennaio una serie di progetti in comune tra Renault e Nissan per dare l’impressione che l’alleanza sia ancora in vita. Senard ha negato l’apertura a rivedere le partecipazioni azionarie.
Intanto anche Renault come Nissan sta facendo piani nel caso di un’implosione dell’alleanza. Le conseguenze sarebbero letali.

Renault has appointed Luca de Meo, the former head of Volkswagen Group's Seat brand, as CEO as the automaker looks to move on from the Carlos Ghosn era.

De Meo has been a front-runner to replace ousted CEO Thierry Bollore for months but his appointment was delayed because he had a noncompete clause with VW Group.

De Meo, 52, will take up the post on July 1, Renault said in a statement on Tuesday. He replaces Clotilde Delbos, who took over as Renault's interim CEO after Bollore was ousted in October. Delbos will continue as interim CEO until de Meo takes office, Renault said. The board would like her to become deputy CEO after that, the statement said.

De Meo will be prohibited from disclosing competitive information for five months and must spend that time at his home before officially starting at Renault, the French newspaper Le Figaro reported Tuesday.

His hiring as CEO will need to be approved at Renault's general shareholders' meeting in April.

De Meo was CEO of VW Group's Seat brand for five years until he stepped down this month. He led Seat to record sales, including 517,600 in 2018, an 11 percent increase from 2017, and gave the brand a sportier image, creating the Cupra subbrand aimed at youthful buyers.

Challenges
De Meo's appointment marks a return to the company where he started his career in 1992 in product marketing.

As two of the most asset-heavy industries in Europe, manufacturing and transport are facing strong headwinds thanks to growing operational costs and competitive pressures coming from within the European continent and beyond.

After five years at Renault, he moved to Toyota Motor Europe as a product manager for the Yaris small car and the Lexus brand. In 2002 de Meo moved to Fiat Chrysler, where he led the Alfa Romeo, Abarth and eventually Fiat brands. In 2009 he moved to the VW Group, working first on marketing for the VW brand and then leading marketing and sales at Audi.

De Meo has an understanding of both French and Japanese culture and way of doing business. Those skills will be important at Renault, in which the French government holds a 15 percent stake in Renault and expects to be a partner in major business and strategic decisions.

He was born in Milan in 1967 and studied business administration at the city's Bocconi University. In addition to Italian, de Meo speaks English, French, German and Spanish.

De Meo will take operational charge of Renault under its chairman, Jean-Dominique Senard, when the French automaker faces challenges on all fronts.

Renault is struggling to move beyond the 2018 arrest of Ghosn, its long-time chairman and CEO, who was chairman of alliance partners Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors. Ghosn's departure exposed tensions that nearly tore the alliance apart, even as a weakening of demand in key markets has hurt sales and earnings.

Renault ha nominato come ceo Luca De Meo, prenderà servizio in luglio dato che Vw non ha concesso la liberatoria prima di quella data. E’ indubbiamente l’occasione della vita per il manager italiano. Nel 2007 sembrava certo che sarebbe diventato ceo di Fiat auto ma Marchionne gli fece pagare il flop della bravo. Alla Vw era molto apprezzato, Diess si è più volte speso in lodi per De Meo, il quale sperava di diventare ceo di Audi. Nel gruppo tedesco le nomine più pesanti vanno sempre agli ingegneri, a De Meo era stato prospettato o il titolo di ceo del gruppo in Cina o quello di capo delle vendite. In linea teorica De Meo non solo diventerà ceo di Renault ma anche capo dell’alleanza. Bisogna vedere quali deleghe avrà, Senard si è dimostrato molto impiccioso.

Infatti non penso centri nulla il flop della bravo:-)
Cmq DeMeo un po' come DeSilva 10 anni prima anche se in campi diversi, impossibilità di fiat di dare libertà di agire e potere ai 2 De:-) a causa di capi mooolto ingombranti.. e diciamoci la verità magari uno zero in più in fondo alla busta paga.

La storia la conosco bene.
De Meo era a capo della Lancia e con le pochissime risorse riuscì a fare della Musa un successo. Marchionne lo notò e lo nominò capo del marchio Fiat nel 2005. In quel periodo grazie a tagli draconiani ed al successo di Punto III (e soprattutto del Brasile) Marchionne riuscì nel miracolo di far tornare Fiat auto al profitto. De Meo fu fondamentale nel lancio di vari modelli tra cui Punto III, Sedici, 500 e poi Bravo.
Nel 2007 i profitti iniziarono a diventare decenti e lo stesso Marchionne disse alla stampa che De Meo presto sarebbe diventato il suo erede a capo di Fiat auto mentre il maglionato sarebbe rimasto alla testa del gruppo, che de facto veniva portato in avanti dai profitti di CNH.
La Bravo II fu presentata nel 2006 (ricordatevi sviluppata da Magna Steyer dopo che Fiat aveva fatto quella campagna per spingere a comprare italiano), già nel 2007 fu chiaro che era un flop. L’ insuccesso della Bravo di cui Marchionne bocciò la versione sw voluta da De Meo mise a rischio gli ambiziosissimi target posti dal maglionato. Nel 2008 De Meo fu sollevato dall’incarico di ceo del marchio Fiat e nominato Chief marketing officer (titolo di scarsissimo peso) e ceo di Alfa. Questa nomina era de facto una punizione dato che Alfa allora annaspava nelle perdite soprattutto a causa del progetto 159.
Marchionne mandò De Meo a bussare a varie porte per chiudere un’alleanza per Alfa, vi ricordate quella siglata con BMW?
Nel giro delle varie case De Meo arrivò anche a Wolfsburg i cui manager apprezzarono lo stile dell’italiano.
E’ possibile che Piech e Winterkorn già stessero pensando ad una campagna d’Italia che si sarebbe dovuta coronare con l’acquisizione di Alfa che fu tentata nel 2010 e nel 2012. L’ingresso di De Meo nell’orbita di Wolfsburg avrebbe potuto svolgere quel ruolo.

DC ottima analisi ma "piccolissima" dimenticanza DeMeo fu "solo" uno degli artefici del lancio trionfale di 500...ben più importante del flop della bravo.

The leaders of the embattled Renault, Nissan, Mitsubishi alliance put forward a unified face by unleashing a new divide-and-conquer plan to bolster their troubled business.

The strategy calls for dividing the world geographically, with partners spearheading operations in the regions where they are strongest. And it adopts a leader-follower approach to engineering, in which they will divide responsibilities for r&d among them.

Details of the plan will be fleshed out by May, when the individual companies plan to individually announce new mid-term plans that take into account their production footprints and product development needs, Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard said on Thursday.

But some directions are already clear. In terms of geographic responsibilities, Renault will take the lead in Europe, Nissan will be the director in China and Mitsubishi will head Southeast Asia. They did not specify a point company for North America, though Nissan is the biggest player there.

The companies will also divide engineering work, with one company leading r&d and product development in a given area and the other companies sending people to assist. This will differ from the old method which had teams, for example, in France and Japan working in tandem. 

New areas to divvy up include the upper body of vehicles, where the alliance companies hope to eke out more synergies and commonization. They will also split work on platforms and powertrains. Renault will also be handed the lead in developing light commercial vehicles. 

“The auto industry is facing big transformations,” Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida said while announcing the new approach. “We discussed how to fully utilize the strength of each entity.”

Connected Vehicles: When the Leader Doesn’t Always Win Alone

A global race is underway to digitize cars, and the perception is that the newcomers with a disruptive mentality have taken pole position.

READ MORE

The strategy was agreed to earlier in the day by the Alliance Operating Board, a new steering committee launched last March following the arrest of former alliance chairman Carlos Ghosn.

The push to improve efficiencies comes amid continued upheaval at world’s biggest auto group. Its leaders are fighting falling sales and shrinking profits and struggling to find joint projects that can boost results and deliver on the alliance’s promise of massive scale and combined resources.

Combined global deliveries for the alliance fell 5.6 percent to 10.2 million vehicles in 2019, below Toyota’s 10.7 million vehicle sales for the first time since 2016 and the 10.9 million sold last year by Volkswagen Group. Toyota’s sales climbed 1.4 percent and VW’s gained 1.3 percent.

Overcapacity is pressuring the automakers as they face spiraling costs for new technologies.

And all the while, the Alliance endures unprecedented sniping from Ghosn, who jumped bail in Japan and escaped to freedom in Lebanon where he paints the alliance as a failed “masquerade.”

The four-member panel is overseen by Senard, in his role as Ghosn’s successor, and seats the heads of Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi. But the Alliance Operating Board’s lineup has already seen significant churn since its creation less than a year ago. Two members are new since October. 

Representing Renault is interim CEO Clotilde Delbos, who was appointed in October, and coming from Nissan is Uchida, took office as CEO only last month.

Mitsubishi Motors Corp. Chairman Osamu Masuko sits in for his carmaker.

At its start, the initial board was composed of Thierry Bollore from Renault SA, Hiroto Saikawa from Nissan Motor Co., along with Mitsubishi’s Masuko. At the time, Masuko served as both chairman and CEO of Mitsubishi. Masuko handed the CEO role to Takao Kato in June. 

Over the last year, Bollore was pushed out at Renault. And just this week, Renault appointed Luca de Meo, the former head of Volkswagen Group's Seat brand, to replace Delbos from July 1.

Saikawa resigned in September after improperly receiving excessive payouts under a stock-linked executive compensation program. An acting CEO filled in until Uchida took office.

To give the so-called AOB more teeth, the partners created an alliance general secretary position last month who will coordinate major projects across the three carmakers.

They appointed Hadi Zablit to that role. Zablit had served as the alliance’s senior vice president of business development since March 2018, heading such programs as the development of the Common Module Family A platform, a shared architecture for small cars.

Zablit, who attended the Jan. 30 meeting, is charged with accelerating the efficiency of joint operations among the companies, in an effort to boost operating profits across the board.

Nissan will hold an extraordinary shareholders’ meeting on Feb. 18 to appoint Uchida and several other new directors to the Japanese carmaker’s board. The gathering will also be platform for the Nissan management to offer fresh details of its latest restructuring plans.

Aside from Uchida, shareholders will vote on approving COO Ashwani Gupta as a new director as well as Hideyuki Sakamoto, Nissan’s executive vice president in charge of manufacturing and supply chain management. Also up for appointment is Pierre Fleuriot, a Renault nominee.

Renault, which rescued Nissan form bankruptcy in 1999, has a 43 percent controlling stake in Nissan while Nissan holds a 15 percent, non-voting stake in Renault, whose top shareholder is the French government. Nissan took a controlling 34-percent stake in Mitsubishi in 2016.



Renault-Nissan cercano di mettere una pezza alle loro disastrate relazioni. Entro maggio vedremo un nuovo piano quinquennale di tutte e 3 le case.
