What happened to Japanese tech?
A study by the Institute for Management Development (IMD) gives an idea of the downturn that has hit the Japanese tech sector for 20 years. Dominant in the 1980s and 1990s, the sector is now only 29th in this list, which lists 69 countries. The ranking is based on a series of 54 factors such as knowledge, technology, R&D and the state of the country’s economy.

From the first 9 months of 2021 to those of 2022, Tesla sales fell from 24,911 units to 10,265 units. The manufacturer thus goes from 14th to 29th place for the biggest sales in France. It seems that everything revolves around the fall in sales of Model 3. The vehicle could indeed be bought for 40,000 euros thanks to a great ecological bonus.
