    Ghosn has been away for a while now. Highly doubt he had anything to do with it.

    According to the original article you linked:
    Given that these talks have apparently been going on for quite a while now, Ghosn was most definitely involved in it in the past and probably helped lay the groundwork. Had he not been booted from everything last November this merger proposal might have even come a few months sooner.

    But Ghosn doesn't control Nissan anymore, and given that Renault has a 43% stake in Nissan it's not surprising that they don't want a direct competitor rolling up Renault's operations. So not very surprising that it fell flat.

    I wasn't wrong.

    With the 500 and 124 exiting, I don't see how Fiat can possibly still exist in the US. The brand must be exiting as well.
