Nissan CEO says some car makers concerned over product control in Google cooperation

Nissan Motor Co chief executive Carlos Ghosn said some car makers remain reticent about working with technology giant Google Inc as it develops driverless vehicles for fear of their brands’ identities becoming submerged. Ghosn, who also heads France’s Renault, said car makers can benefit from collaborating with Google, which offers its Android software for cars and which is building prototypes of self-driving cars. “But at the end of the day, I think all car makers are extremely cautious about maintaining control on their own cars,” he told a news conference in Tokyo on Thursday.
