Charging operator in crisis – lays off 10 percent of all employees

The international energy company BP is to slim down in the department for electric cars. This means saying goodbye to 10 percent of the employees.

Stellantis has warned of a real bloodbath among the car factories. Some will be engulfed while others will shut down completely.

Even before we get there, however, the industry has begun to shake. On the same day that it emerged that Tesla will fire 10 percent of all employees, there are similar messages from the energy company BP.

The department that deals with charging stations and general infrastructure for electric cars has to go on a diet. So again.

Reuters writes that.

For BP Pulse, as the company division is called, has already said goodbye to more than 100 employees in the past few months.

At the same time as the additional redundancies comes a change in strategy. Instead of business, BP's charging operator will now focus more on private motoring and the setting up of smaller charging stations in private homes.

In addition, BP will withdraw from markets where it is estimated that the growth for electric cars, and the infrastructure they require, is not going fast enough. There with BP only be present in 4 countries: USA, China, England and Germany.

For the new round of layoffs, BP Pulse employed just over 800 employees. But now a good number of the remaining ones are also leaving the guard.
