Car brands fire 400 employees because of electric cars

Once again, a switch to electric car production costs jobs. This time it is the car group Stellantis that is laying off 400 people.

Stellantis will once again fire. This time in the USA, where the number of office positions is being cut sharply.

Specifically, the group is laying off 400 office employees. It all happens in connection with the conversion to electric car production.

The media Detroit Free Press writes that.

The people that Stellantis – which in the US covers the brands Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM – will fire correspond to just over 2 percent of the group's staff within engineering work, technology and software, the group announces.

– As the automotive industry continues to face unprecedented challenges and greater global competition, Stellantis continues to make the right structural decisions to improve efficiency and reduce costs, writes Stellantis.

The announcement from Stellantis comes at a time when several car brands are busy lobbing from their own lofts.

Also Stellantis. For example, the group's director Carlos Tavares said back in January that he was not at the head of a group that lost money on electric cars just to be able to sell them.

– We make money. And it's our job to make sure we make money regardless of what we sell. Because if we don't do that, we don't have a sustainable business, said the CEO.

Ironically, it was only a short time after that that a Stellantis brand actually had to significantly cut the price of its electric cars in order to sell some of them. Read more about it here .
