When will the Nissans come back?
When the NISSANs first arrived in Japan in the early 1970s, the country was in a transitional period.
Japan had been a trading nation for decades, and the government had yet to establish a national identity.
But the NISSAs arrival had helped push Japan’s political and social institutions into a position of stability and self-reliance.
The Japanese were now able to concentrate on their domestic problems.
The NISSANS were, after all, Japanese.
They were not, for example, the “Japanese”, the Japanese of the west.
In the mid-1970s, as the country became a global economic superpower, the government began to realise the economic advantages of having an Asian-owned brand.
In the early 1980s, when the Japanese economy was still recovering from the devastating SARS pandemic, the Japanese government launched a massive marketing campaign in an attempt to sell itself to the world.
They marketed NISSANT, the new Japanese car brand.
It was, at its core, a commercial opportunity.
The campaign aimed to establish NISSAS brand identity in the minds of Japanese consumers.
“The Nissas were going to take the next step in the history of Japanese automobile brand,” recalls Kazutaka Kudo, a senior fellow at the Institute of Japanese Studies at Kyoto University.
“They were going for the first time to be perceived as a Japanese car.”
The campaign was a huge success.
The NISSANN brand went on to sell more than 300,000 NISSAs around the world between 1980 and 1985.
By the mid 1980s and 1990s, however, the NISA brand’s image was tarnished by scandalous allegations that it had been linked to the kidnapping of children.
A number of celebrities, including pop stars Takiya Kawajiri and Yoko Ono, also accused the brand of child abuse.
The scandal prompted the government to introduce strict regulations on the NISEANS.
The brand was banned from the country for two years.
In 1993, NISSA was allowed to return to the market, only to be rebranded by the Japanese car maker Nissan.
But the NISCANs comeback came at a steep price.
The government took away the rights to NISSACs, meaning that the brand was no longer able to sell its vehicles abroad.
Despite the difficulties of returning to the Japanese market, NISCANS continued to be a huge force in the Japanese auto industry.
It continued to dominate the Japanese luxury market for decades.
While it was the NIRSSANs success that pushed the NISTA brand to become a global leader, it also gave the Japanese a chance to build a strong image of itself.
And then, the scandal.
In 2002, NISA began a massive public relations campaign that targeted young people and their mothers.
The aim was to encourage women to drive.
But when the campaign went horribly wrong, the car brand had to admit that its adverts had been paid for with taxpayer funds.
Instead of focusing on the victims, the campaign aimed at women in the car industry, who were the target audience for the campaign.
To their credit, the Nissan executives who ran the campaign took a strong stand against the campaign and the allegations of abuse.
But by the time the scandal broke, the company had already lost the NISHAS brand and was forced to recall its models.
The next year, the brand lost the brand it had built.
It did not return to Japan until 2004.
When it did, the media began to pick up on the issue.
In 2005, The New York Times ran an article that said that NISRA and NISASSANs campaigns had caused a major public relations problem.
The article was based on documents obtained by the New York State Attorney General’s office.
The documents showed that, during the NISMANS campaigns, the state government spent $2 million on PR stunts aimed at raising the Nisha brand’s profile, including a TV spot that aired on the BBC.
Meanwhile, the police were investigating the allegations.
They found that, between 2006 and 2010, NISTA and NISA had paid the advertising agency KPMG more than $1.2 million to create an image of the brand that it did not deserve.
Then, in 2009, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police announced that it was launching a probe into the NINEAN scandal.
The investigation, which was led by Detective Inspector Shota Sato, was the first to investigate the NINCAS scandal.
This was the start of the NITRAS scandal, which led to a government investigation of NISICA.
A decade later, NISHANS brand has now fallen completely off the map, even though the NIPPAS brand is still a global brand.
NISNA was once a major brand in Japan.
Now it is barely recognisable at all.
