That is a great idea, well done Japan, obviously also emissions reduction too is important so Global Warming isn't bringing more insects, maybe Electric Cars.

Yes as Nissan is too (down 15%), maybe you need Ghosn to help you make EVs.

Maybe looking at the picture if pedestrian crossings were freshly painted, along with all road markings there would be fewer accidents, yesterday an old guy today a bus, a least fewer unemployed old children killing their parents this week.

Six months of weekend violence and no end in sight, shows how fragile is a calm society, and I agree, shocking how easy to raise money, for some old building, for some religion that is supposed to care for people, especially at Easter, hopefully wouldn't happen in Japan.

Hmmmm, is this a real story, Prius knocks over a garbage truck, and a bicycle with a three year old has no seat just a basket, this is not making sense.

@soylentEh

Great article, shame its not a hyperlink, but if you paste to google, yes they did have issues with that car, with an overlong pedal (3/4"), and a mat that can dislodge, just a little surprising and tragic it happened here.

Mother and child riding out on crossing, no helmets, seen it all the time, but pedestrian hit seventy metres before crossing, accelerator didn't return, but no mention of brakes, seems odd, in all the comments only one about "autonomous", non about driving safety aids, it does seem odd you would hit a pedestrian and continue at high speed into truck, if there wasn't something electrically wrong with the car, so yes investigate the car.

Fingers crossed on the 30th, for the Japanese launch, the American rocket that just went up has a a potential payload of 140,000 pounds, so still some way to go.

estimating that most people only use their vehicles around 10 percent of the day, meaning the rest of the time could be dedicated to picking up fares. Owners could manage their car on the network using the smartphone on 5G

Maybe to share as to be driven, but without driver, it was called car pooling during rush hour and car rental at other times with autonomous cars blurring the line with Taxis and buses, trams and trains, the Docomo.com ebike at stations works well, Nissan have ecars for hire in Yokohama, my point is we need to clean up the last of the petrol cars they make.

Its an eyesore with bags of dirty earth piled high, hotspots occurred where contaminated water ran to, over all background radiation we are told here in Australia is only 6 or 7 and we should know we mine the dam stuff.

Just put the top soil back, remove the plastic and move on, maybe not agriculture, but forestry, some product that's not eaten.

Very brave or very stupid that she came back, they have no connection to Nissan, so should just quietly leave, forfeit the bail, as a fine to reimburse Nissan and GO.

At this stage self driving is too clever for Nissan, just smart nav with 5G will do, I know it doesn't sound like a winner, but striving for "best taxi" is a good step towards the future cars have to be like, and if you've seen the "Crowns", they drive now in Japan, you would be hard pressed to think its the Worlds third economy !

Do you remember Mazda with its polluting rotary engine or the turbo era, with noise and smoke, or VW with its diesel, Nissan have made a start with LEAF, but no cars should have auxiliaries driven by belts, so Nissan could lead the way, and that would help their shares.

People are concerned about air purity, that is why the push for EV, or at least hybrid (no-idle), have you ever been in a traffic jam, with fumes of the cars blowing in the cars behind, its disgusting !

NISSAN definitely need a CLEAN image in more ways than one !

Well we "share" escooters and ebike, using hi viz shirts, helmets and disposible hairnets, yes "sharable" cars is coming, and Nissan better be ready for it, with their new team from the top down.

Well move ahead with electrifying the whole range, people don't like fan belts anymore, and they are still wary of EVs

Posted in: Nissan shareholders vote to remove Ghosn as director See in context

So there is no Chairman and Renault are just as much in charge of the whole business as before, his wife had multiple passports as did Ghosn, no I think the prosecutors did a good job, and no conviction so they haven't done anything wrong, just kept him from the Press.

I wish Nissan et al the best, its all about electric cars from now on.
