Jaguar Land Rover on Wednesday announced 2,000 job cuts across the globe from its salaried workers. This comes soon after they announced going electrical entirely by 2025 and launching all models of its electrical vehicles rolled out by 2030.
The company said in a statement, “The full review of the Jaguar Land Rover organisation is already underway. We anticipate a reduction of around 2,000 people from our global salaried workforce in the next financial year.” They added that the manufacturing employees who are paid on an hourly basis would not be impacted by this decision.
Jaguar Land Rover is owned by Tata Motors, an Indian automobile brand. The brand plans on rolling out its first electric model by 2024. They currently face the challenge of launching electric vehicles while maintaining their image.
