British automaker Jaguar Land Rover announced on Wednesday February 17th that it plans to cut around 2,000 jobs worldwide next year. Two days earlier he had unveiled a strategy aimed at achieving carbon neutrality by 2039 and the transition of the Jaguar brand to 100% electric from 2025. The group owned by the Indian Tata has invoked the need to reduce its costs in order to transform itself into a “more agile organization”.

The group added that factory workers would not be affected. When announcing its strategy on Monday, the group led by Thierry BollorĂ© had indicated that its transformation would lead to a significant reduction in its non-production activities in the United Kingdom, without specifying to what extent. But the manufacturer had assured that he did not want to close a factory, explaining that that of Solihull, in central England, where Land Rovers are also manufactured, would house Jaguar’s 100% electric platform.
