How Ghosn's Pay Stacked Up to Other Global Auto Leaders: Chart

(Bloomberg) -- During his time at the helm of Nissan Motor Co., Carlos Ghosn earned a lot more than his Japanese peers -- but not nearly as much as other global auto leaders. Jetting around the world to supervise auto operations, Ghosn averaged about $15 million annually in total compensation during the five-year period through 2015 that is now the subject of investigation in Japan. It was roughly 10 times as much as the leaders of Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. were each paid in the period, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
