Ford Motor Co plans to cut up to 3,200 jobs at its Cologne factory, according to reports, citing the company's workers' council.

The main headquarters in Cologne could be seen in footage filmed on Tuesday, after the announcements of massive job cuts due to a shift in production strategy for Ford's electric cars, as the company plans to sell only electric cars in the EU by 2030.

Ford employees in Germany have already faced cost-cutting measures. Most recently in 2020, when 5,400 jobs were cut in Germany.

According to local media, US carmaker Ford was planning large-scale job cuts at its Cologne site, according to the works council. According to the IG Metall union, up to 3200 workers could be affected.
