Carlos Ghosn, the electric car and the zero-star safety Nissan Tsuru

In Europe, the US and Japan Nissan has a reputation for innovation, environmentalism and safety. The company’s CEO, Carlos Ghosn, is one of the industry’s superstars and an evangelist for the electric car and for new technologies to prevent crashes. Youtube one of his talks at Stanford or Princeton or watch Revenge of the Electric Car and you’ll understand why he’s one of the most respected businessmen on the planet.

Ghosn is a trailblazer who loves innovation, always looking ahead, never standing still. Without him, the loss-leading Nissan Leaf electric car wouldn’t be out there, creating a market for zero-emission vehicles. The only problem is that he’s also responsible for Nissan continuing to sell cars like the Nissan Tsuru for Mexico.

Latin NCAP just crash-tested the Tsuru. There are some pretty bad cars on the road in Latin America, but the Tsuru ranks among the least safe. The crash test video shows just how bad.
