Nissan Australia boss frustrated with uninformed politicians

Allowing the private importation of new or near-new cars will hardly decimate established factory-backed car distributors — but that doesn’t mean last week’s proposal to do just that is a good idea. This is the stance of Nissan Australia managing director Richard Emery, who this week joined a long line of industry figures slamming the announcement made last week by assistant industry minister Jamie Briggs...

Nissan calls passenger cars its “achilles heel”, no Euro Pulsar for now

Nissan Australia says it might have become excessively focused on SUVs and light commercials, to the detriment of its passenger car range. In recent times, Nissan has been propped up by its strong SUV range — the Juke, Qashqai, X-Trail and Pathfinder in particular — and the Navara ute. Its passenger range, comprising the Micra, Pulsar, Altima and 370Z, has by contrast struggled mightily...
