What's the least surprising thing you'll hear all day?
"Renault's board of directors has re-elected Carlos Ghosn as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for a four-year period, following the renewal of his directorship by the Annual General Meeting of April 30, 2010."
So, now that Ghosn has been reconfirmed as the man at the helm of the dual-headed Renault/Nissan alliance, what does he plan to do next? No, he's not going to Disney World. "We will continue to accelerate synergies with Nissan as part of the Alliance, with new actions that should produce results in 2010," answers Ghosn. "We are combining our strengths with Nissan, notably in India, Russia, Brazil and Mexico."

Business as usual, it would seem.

      4 more years ... because all your previous plans for global domination were flawed (in expectations), perhaps?

      What do you want to do tonight?
      The same thing we do every night ... TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD.

      Hell yeah, I wanted him to go to "Ninni Woh wohld". ;)

      Oh great. Frog man's tenure continues.

      I wish someone else would come in and guide Nissan in the direction of making reliable cars again. I doubt he is even interested in anything other than making the most cost cutting moves possible.

      Seriously, Nissan has had horrible reliability since Renault took over in '99. Models in the middle of the refresh cycle in 1999-2000 went from suddenly stellar to udder pieces of trash in a year

      Just as with Honda and Toyota.... i know they can do better.

        what bigoted term??!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Did i ever say Ghosn was French?

        Hm.. actually... did you happen to read my post before hitting the reply button? :)

        I stopped reading when you used the bigoted term. Way to discredit yourself.

        Shows how much you know...

        Ghosn was born in Porto Velho, Brazil on 9 March 1954 to Lebanese parents!

        Lebanon is an Arab country in the Middle East. He's about as "French" as Nissan, fool.

      "Report: Carlos Ghosn gets four more years as Renault CEO."

      There's no drama here. As the saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

      I can't hold this back: When I saw that photo, I pictured him using a thick Brooklyn accent saying, "Ya gotta have bawwlllllsss."

        I pictured him as the Emperor from Star Wars about to unleash electricity from his hands.
        • 4 Years Ago
        What Star Wars...what Mr. Bean you guys are talking about?

        Can't you see...Ghosn is doing his lefty hand, Vulcan salute!

      I pictured him saying, "C'mon guys, SimpleCar is right! There IS too many distractions in the cabin. Keep the music, but leave the iPad at home(or at the Apple store)."

      4 more years.......sound familiar.
