Was the Juke discontinued? (My eyes are hoping someone says 'yes').

YES, They have a replacement that has been selling in the global market coming in this year. I forgot what it is now called but the Juke is DEAD! :) 

Interesting ups and downs of auto sales for Nissan but at least their 2018 year is up over 2017.

The Nissan Kicks is replacing the Juke.  Though maybe they should have spelt it 'Kix'.

Is this kicks on the same platform as the rogue- they look identical in size/tier.

My understanding is it is the same platform used but shorter.

Not sure..this is smaller, below the Rogue Sport/Qashqai.    Which is smaller than the Rogue.   Maybe the same platform as the Juke...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Kicks

 

So for the US the Nissan SUV/CUV range for Nissan will be (top to bottom):

Armada, Pathfinder, Murano, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Kicks.

I didn't realize the armada was still being built- haven't noticed one out on the road in a long time.
Seems like this kicks & the rogue are going to cannibalize off each other to some degree if they're so similar.

The Kicks is substantially smaller than the Rogue. Much less horsepower. FWD only. Feels smaller than my Encore inside.

The Rogue is a 3-row crossover these days, slightly bigger than the Chevy Equinox. 

Then there is the Rogue Sport, a tweener about the size of a Subaru Crosstrek or Jeep Compass.

You know it's more than exterior length.  The interior of the Kicks is most politely described as "snug".

I hear it got its name because when you're inside it, every time you move your foot you kick something.  It is advised not to move your feet at all inside the Kicks.

Unless one is kicking oneself for buying it.

      Infiniti announced today that they will exit the Western European market to concentrate on their growth areas in North America and China.  The company stated that regulatory challenges and competition from other premium priced cars were the main factors in its decision. There are 55 Infiniti dealerships in Western Europe.
      As part of the move, Infiniti is canceling the Q30 sedan and QX30 crossover which is sold in the US.  Both vehicles are built in the UK at Nissan's Sunderland plant. Nissan recently announced they will not be building their X-Trail SUV in the UK. Nissan is also rumored to be cutting Leaf and Qashqai production at the Sunderland plant. This follows recent moves by Honda and potentially BMW to end automobile production in the UK in fear of a no-deal Brexit. 
      In January, Infiniti's President Christian Meunier admitted the QX30 was a flop, but said that the model would continue on an all-Infiniti platform.  The exit from Europe now puts those plans into question. 
      Infiniti will remain in Eastern Europe, North America, and China and will electrify most of its products by 2021.

      Japanese journalists await Carlos Ghosn who was expected to be released from Jail on bail after the Tokyo court granted the bail request. Ghosn lawyer's office said it would be near impossible for him to be released the same day due to an appeal by the prosecutor's office.
      Ghosn was granted bail set at $1 billion yen or equal to $9 million US at today's exchange rate. Ghosn is 64 and head of the auto alliance of Nissan Motors, Mitsubishi Motors, and Renault. He was arrested in 2018 on suspicion of underreporting his income by more than $80 million US dollars and saddling Nissan with his personal investment losses, allegations he denies.
      Ghosn new legal team was able to get bail granted on the conditions he will be kept under guard locally with limited to no outside information. Ghosn has claimed that the executives of Nissan are responsible for his arrest as they plotted and committed treason to prevent him from bringing Nissan further under Renault's control.
      While Carlos Ghosn has resigned from the CEO position on all three companies, he remains on the boards of all three companies.
      Yet now that he is out on bail he seems to be insulting the average workers of Japan and according to various stories, his new legal team has apologized for advising the former CEO to leave jail in a disguise being taken away in a work van with ladders attached to the roof.
      Local news outlets have mocked the costume drama bringing more attention than if he had just left on his own in normal business attire and in a business auto. Ghosn is one of the highest-profile detainees which also has made him one of the most famous now.
      Ghosn was seen later in the day walking with two women, one believed to be his wife and the other his daughter in a Tokyo park by where he will be living surrounded by press and still wearing the blue baseball cap and sunglasses.

      A few weeks after Honda announced the closure of its manufacturing plant in Swindon, Sky News is reporting that BMW and Nissan are both looking at moving operations out of the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
      BMW currently produces the Mini-Cooper in Oxford.  BMW's Peter Schwarzenbauer has said that the company would "need to consider" moving production out of the UK. In addition to Mini production, some engine production would move to Austria from Birmingham.
      Likewise Nissan, which produces the Qashqai and Leaf in Sunderland would cut back production and potential plant reductions of about 400 jobs.  Nissan has already announced that due to Brexit uncertainty, the manufacturer would not be producing the Nissan X-Trail in Sunderland. Sunderland is the largest automotive manufacturing plant in the UK.
