Jaguar Land Rover to cut 4,500 jobs
Jaguar Land Rover will cut 4,500 jobs as Britain's largest carmaker seeks to revamp its business amid falling demand for diesel and a decline in the Chinese market. JLR's announcement comes only hours after Ford announced sweeping cuts to its European business, with plans for "Thousands" of job losses and warnings that there could be further should the UK leave Europe with no deal. At present, JLR's only battery electric vehicle, the Jaguar I-Pace, is made by a contract manufacturer in Austria. JLR's job cuts will begin with a voluntary redundancy programme in the UK, which aims to create "a leaner, more resilient organisation with a flatter management structure". Last year, it axed about 1,000 jobs at its Solihull site and moved staff at its Jaguar plant at Castle Bromwich on to a three-day week.
