Japanese government officials tried unsuccessfully to bring Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and Honda Motor Co. Ltd. together for merger talks earlier this year, the Financial Times reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The idea, first put to the companies at the end of 2019, was rejected before it reached the boards of both sides.
