Nissan names it’s new model Moco – Spanish for “mucus”.
Quite a sticky issue, this. I guess this one will join the pantheon of brand names that suck when used internationally. I remember reading an article that had a whole list of such mistakes, where the maker had no idea about what a brand name means in different languages, leading to some hilarious situations.
Japanese car manufacturers usually use different brand names for their cars in different markets, so I guess they’ll rename the Moco for foreign markets.
