 Nissan shares fall 10pc after record loss warning

Nissan's shares have plunged by 10% in Tokyo trading after warning that it would see a record annual loss.

Japan's second-largest carmaker said it expects a $4.5bn (£3.5bn) operating loss this year as the coronavirus hinders its turnaround efforts.

The worse-than-expected forecast came as the company predicted its sales will be the lowest in a decade, BBC reported.

It's the latest indication of the extent of the damage caused by the pandemic to the global car industry.
