But the as the Japanese tech industry is strong it is helping the auto industry with the transition to the electric vehicles market. The Japanese automotive are now gearing towards the electric vehicles development which is the only alternative for the industry to thrive. With dropping sales all over the world Nissan has announced major cuts in the industry along with many other Japanese automotive giants.
