Nissan’s senior executives have made an acceleration on the contingent secret planning for a potential split from the company Renault as the company has been undergoing a turmoil due to the constant downfall of Carlos Ghosn which has been reverberating through the alliance which has now been present for 20 years between the two giants of automotive sector. A part of these plans is the war-gaming of a total divide in the manufacturing and engineering along with the changes to the board of Nissan as per a lot of reports. The plans have been gaining speed since late December when Ghosn escaped from Japan in Dramatic fashion. This moving for mapping a potential split out comes as the latest evidence of the tensions that exist in the alliance that has been together for two decades and Mr. Ghosn was largely responsible for holding this alliance together. The alliance produces a yearly output of 10 million cars and there have been a lot of efforts to keep things going the way they are however the relations have turned toxic said a couple of the people with a lot of the senior executives of Nissan keeping the belief that their French partner is now a drag on their company.
In case a full split takes place, it is going to force both of these carmakers to find new partners for the industry that has been battling the sales going down and costs which have been rising due to the tectonic shift that is happening to the electric vehicles. This would also leave both the companies at a backward footing particularly at the time when their rivals have been bulking up through alliances.
