    French carmaker Renault will maintain its presence in Iran while taking measures to avoid the risk of penalties for breaching renewed US sanctions, CEO Carlos Ghosn said Friday. “We will not abandon it, even if we have to downsize very strongly,” he said at the annual shareholders’ meeting in Paris. “When the market reopens, the fact of having stayed will certainly give us an advantage,” he predicted. […] Renault’s rival PSA, which produces the Peugeot and Citroën brands, has also announced it will quit Iran to abide by the US sanctions. But Ghosn signaled that Renault, which counted 160,000 cars...

    Nissan Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn is confident a 237 billion yen ($2.2 billion) investment in a controlling stake in scandal-embroiled Mitsubishi Motors will prove a bargain when sheer size is critical in the auto industry. Japanese transport ministry officials raided Mitsubishi Motors Corp.’s Tokyo headquarters Friday, as part of an investigation into inflated fuel-economy data for several models. […] Mitsubishi’s shares fell 43 percent between April 19 — the day before it announced the fuel economy scandal — and May 11. The stock cost 565 yen ($5.20) Friday, down 1.7 percent following a surge on the deal's news. Gaining Mitsubishi...

    In brief: This new coalition of members of the electric vehicle community, infrastructure, and more proclaim that the U.S. needs to have 75% of its light-duty vehicle miles go electric by 2040.
