Americans do not like Nissan Automobiles. Sorry, but true.

Americans do not like Nissan Automobiles. Sorry, but true’.

And yet, about 1.2m Americans bought a new Nissan every year (prior to Covid).

Maybe true of the post-Ghosn compacts that all have the same boring unresponsive CVT. But the Skyline series is still considered the holy grail of street racers and modders.

EU officially banned the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles from 2035 yesterday. This is expected to wipe out Japanese brand vehicles from EU markets since Japanese are least competitive in EV sector, even behind the Chinese.

EU Parliament backs 2035 end date for combustion engine cars

Environment Ministers should support phase-out deadline for polluting cars and vans – with no exceptions.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

@ Samit Basu: With respect, the new and improved system that builds upon the existing ETS, that Brussels wants to do many things -- including a phase out of combustion engines, requiring all new cars registered in the EU as of 2035 to be zero-emission, and ending sales of new combustion-engine vehicles -- ran into late road bumps (no pun intended). But the part about internal combustion cars did survive, according to Euronews.

But . . . The approved legislation still has to be approved by the European Parliament and the EU Council. This may be no easy feat, considering what happened Wednesday.

What happened Wednesday?

As of late on 8 June the large package deal from the environmental committee, ran into trouble when late amendments were voted on. The drama continued when the final measure was "rejected by 340 votes against and 265 votes in favour, with 34 abstentions." Per Euronews, rejection of the ETS report caused a domino effect, bringing down two other key votes, since MEPs considered the three files to be too interlinked to be voted separately. Thus, "scheduled votes on three key climate laws were postponed over last-minute political disagreements." Per Euronews at https://www.euronews.com/my-europe/2022/06/08/chaos-erupts-at-the-european-parliament-as-three-key-climate-laws-are-postponed.

Confusion and finger pointing ensued.

Stay tuned!

Oh boy! Those Japanese commentators in Yahoo are still in disbelief that the West, China, and even ASEAN are ditching IC cars altogether in coming years.

The automotive industry is the last leg of the Japanese economy. If it goes down, then Japan will officially become a poor country that relies on tourism and prostitution like Thailand. However, Thailand gradually cracks down on sex tourism and promotes agriculture plus industries, while Japan openly embraces the dark past of Thailand.
