Ford Motor will lay off approximately 3,800 people in Europe as the global automotive industry transitions to electric vehicles. According to the statement made by the company, approximately 2,300 and 1,300 people will be laid off in Germany and the UK, respectively, in the next 3 years.

Martin Sander, Ford’s European Business Unit Manager for Electric Cars, said: “To ensure Ford’s sustainable profitability in Europe in the future, extensive action must be taken and a path that includes changes in vehicle development, production and sales. This will also affect the organizational structure.”

Ford, which previously announced that it plans to sell only electric vehicles in 2035, has therefore announced that it may reduce the number of employees in the product development team.

It is stated that the company has approximately 45 thousand employees in Europe, and the number of employees in the UK is 7 thousand.
