Yeah, he got whacked.
The Japanese do not want their large corporations merged with foreign companies with the foreign company having control.
Alliances are ok, mergers are not.

I don't think he's going to jail.
The goal is to get him banned from having an executive role in any Japanese corporation.
Considering he's a foreigner being charged in Japan, this mission will almost certainly be accomplished.

Those crummy CVTs are part of why Nissan is profitable and in the broad sense consumers have been pretty slow to wise up to this. Many, many people are still under the impression that Japanese manufacturer equals high quality. Nissan has been able to skate by under that guise for almost 2 decades while producing vehicles that overall don't reflect stellar reliability or quality.

I wouldn't even dare to touch a G35 or G37 that are over 100k miles that's why their resale values are so bad.
Whether you like it or not these automakers are in the business to sell, and those rogues with the "crap transmissions" are killing every other suv right now in sales so I would say it's been a success. https://www.motortrend.com/news/2018...-halfway-year/ CVT's are only growing in poplarity so you might as well get used to it.

As far as Ghosn sounds like a corporate Psychopath to me his work was great, but he obviously needs some time in prison to think about all the millions he's robbed the people of japan of who have produced a platform for him to make this money from.

I don't think he robbed anyone.
He disagreed with Japanese executive compensation, so he compensated for it.

I don't think that Renault had a problem with this, so they looked the other way.
The Japanese knew they this on him, so they stuck it in their back pocket and waited.
When he stuck his nose in "their" business too far, they chopped it off.

In the world of Japanese auto manufacturers this is very surprising to me. Mostly because one person is never given the extensive freedom and power that Ghosn was given, rather executive boards are tasked with major decision making with one person ultimately responsible for final approval with the blessing from the board. There are typically very tight reins placed on executives in order to prevent just this sort of thing from happening.

I remember when Ghosn first came to Nissan. His hiring caused a lot of other Japanese companies to take notice, especially when Nissan started claiming market share. He was feared and respected as a no nonsense cost cutter who thought very little of the human implications of his decisions.

You don't have to robb anyone to be a psychopath, and as far as we know he may have.
