"I have to admit that, in Japan in particular, young people don't buy cars anymore.......In the Japanese market, demand has been declining for many years so for the brands in Japan it has become a real dogfight to get sales from the other brands … unless you can develop and build products that young people really want, you're never going to succeed."
