This week, the man behind the new Nissan will start guiding Renault, trying to guide it down the same path that brought the Japanese automaker from debt to profit. Carlos Ghosn has come up with a managing plan that slices 40 percent of his time in the Paris headquarters of Renault, 40 percent at Nissan's Tokyo headquarters and 20 percent in the U.S. and elsewhere. He has given himself six months to evaluate Renault before a diagnosis. If he can pull this off, we may be seeing the Renault name on U.S. streets sooner than later.
