    Rumorpile: Is Nissan Preparing to Announce Huge Job Cuts?

      ...as profits plummet, job huge job cuts could be coming...

    Rumor has it that that Nissan is about to report that its first-quarter profit fell by nearly 90%. Nissan has yet to recover from the financial scandal caused by Carlos Ghosn.  Additionally, years of chasing volume over profits in the U.S. has damaged the brand, requiring heavy discount and cheap financing to move metal. Investors are also worried that the alliance with Renault is breaking down.  Friction with France's Renault over the failed merger with Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles has brought tensions between the two companies to an all-time high.

    Reports are that due to the falling profits, Nissan will be cutting up to 10,000 jobs, primarily in Asia and South America.  In doing so, Nissan would join the ranks of Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Honda, and others with global layoffs in the five digit range. Nissan/Infiniti sales in the US are down 8.9 percent year to date as of June.

    Welcome to the global recession start. Expect job cuts in many countries world wide of basic worker assembly line jobs to manual labor day jobs. 

    Time for the world to take a break and focus on reduction of debt. This is going to hurt many.

    A LOT of companies can stand to reduce debt, especially financial ones.  Our Government(s) too could stand a debt diet.

    They would need to improve their infotainment systems (especially at Infiniti) first.

    As for the question posed: Absolutely they will announce big job cuts.  Shareholders are never satisfied until all revenue = profits.

    the best thing they have is the VC turbo....and the seats?

    I wasn't that impressed with the VC Turbo, but it's main claim to fame is that it's supposed to get really good fuel economy when cruising but greater power when accelerating hard. I didn't get enough time with it to test that.

    BBC is reporting that Nissan has finalized the cuts as 12,500 jobs globally on top of assembly plant closures. 6,400 lay offs have already happened at eight locations. The rest will be done by the end of the year. They also plan to shed an additional 6,100 global jobs between 2020 and 2022 at six additional locations.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/business-49109307

    This is in addition to reporting a 94.5% drop in net profit for Q1 of 2019, worst in decades. UK Sunderland is hoping to avoid job cuts but Nissan has announced that the new X-Trail auto will be built in Japan and exported rather than in the UK due to the Brexit uncertainty.

      Los Angeles - Nissan has unveiled the 2020 Nissan Sentra at the LA Auto Show Today. The new Sentra takes on the look of the larger Altima and Maxima to bring some harmony to the Nissan sedan lineup. The Sentra is Nissan's best selling model in the U.S.
      Nissan is adding Nissan Safety Shield 360 as standard equipment for 2020 with additional driver assisted technologies available.  The platform is all new, now with an independent rear suspension and electric rack steering. A new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder replaces the previous 1.8-liter unit.  The new motor produces 149 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft of torque, an increase of 20 percent and 16 percent respectively. Fuel economy is also projected to improve. All 2020 Sentra models come equipped with the latest generation Xtronic transmission.
      The center of gravity has been lowered by lowering the overall height 2.2 inches and increasing the track by 2.0 inches. 
      Trim levels have been simplified to S, SV, and SR with just two option packages. The interior has been upgraded and refined to be more premium feeling. Android Auto and Apply CarPlay are standard with NissanConnect. 

      The 2020 Sentra goes on sale in January 2020.

      Ford is finishing up production of the Ford Flex at its Oakville Assembly plant in Ontario.  Production is set to finish at the end of November.  The Lincoln MKT which is also built on the line has already ceased production earlier this month.  In cutting these two vehicles, Ford will also lay off about 450 out of 4,100 hourly workers at the plant. The cuts come as Ford changes to an all-utility and truck brand. 
      The Flex was first introduced for the 2008 model year as a bold and retro alternative to a wagon or traditional SUV, combining some elements of both. 
      Ford is scheduled to begin negotiations with Unifor, the largest private sector union in Canada, sometime in 2020. Unifor hopes to get some investment from Ford at the Oakville plant.
