Around 2,300 of the job-losses will come in Germany, with 1,300 in the UK and 200 in the rest of Europe.

Ford said it was “completely reinventing” its brand in Europe and would invest in the design and development of electric passenger vehicles. It explained that this change would impact the organisational structure, talent, and skills it will need in Europe in future.
