Nissan finally returns to the 100% electric vehicle, almost ten years after the Nissan Leaf. In a remote conference, the Japanese automaker presented its new electric SUV, Nissan Ariya. This vehicle will be marketed in Japan in the spring of 2021 and then in North America at the end of 2021. Equipped with two to four-wheel drive, it is armed with an estimated range of 482.8 kilometers and will equipped, under the hood, with a 63 kWh or 87 kWh battery of your choice. With the Ariya, Nissan is betting on discretion and sobriety - a bit like Arya Stark from Game of Thrones, whose name unintentionally evokes.

With more than 4.5 million job seekers in category A in April, unemployment stands at its highest level since 1996 in France

A dizzying increase, linked to containment decreed to fight against the coronavirus. The number of job seekers registered with Pôle emploi in category A in France (excluding Mayotte) recorded its largest increase (+ 843,000 compared to March, or + 22.6%), in April, according to data published Thursday May 28 by the Ministry of Labor and Pôle Emploi.

With more than 4.5 million job seekers in category A in April, unemployment stands at its highest level since 1996 in France

The number of unemployed in this category thus reached its highest level since the start of the series in 1996, that is to say more than 4.5 million (4,575,500). Over three months, 1,065,200 additional job seekers are registered in this category, which groups people with no activity.

Three-quarters were enrolled in categories B or C the previous month

On the other hand, the number of job seekers in reduced activity (categories B, C) fell sharply (-633,600, or -29.9%) in April. Thus, the increase in the number of job seekers in category A observed in April was fueled by three-quarters by people registered in categories B and C in March.

In total, the workforce in categories A, B, C increased by 209,300 in April (i.e. + 3.6%). This constitutes "the largest monthly increase ever recorded" since the creation of these statistics in 1996 and this workforce crosses the six million mark for the first time, at 6.064 million.

This increase in the number of registrants in categories A, B, C, notes the Ministry of Labor, comes against a backdrop of declining entries at Pôle Emploi (-19.1%) and an even more marked drop in exits (-34 , 9%). Thus, although declining, inflows remain higher than outflows, which in turn reach their historic minimum.
