Nissan Motor Company, one of the world's leading carmakers, announced
Nissan Motor Company, one of the world's leading carmakers, announced on Monday it would slash 20,000 jobs or about 8.5% of its workforce worldwide to weather the global economic crisis.

During the 2009 fiscal year, which begins on April 1, Nissan will cut jobs from the current 235,000 to 215,000, the company said in a statement posted on its web site.

The statement also said the company planned to cut labor costs in the 2009 fiscal year by 20% from 875 billion yen ($9.59 billion) to 700 billion yen ($7.67 billion), and it would eliminate directors' bonus payments for the 2008 fiscal year.

Nissan's consolidated net loss in the third quarter of the 2008 fiscal year amounted to 83.2 billion yen ($810 million) compared with net income of 132.2 billion yen ($1.28 billion) in the same period a year ago.

The company's revenues were down 34.4% to 1.82 trillion yen ($17.65 billion) and car sales declined 18.6% to 731,000 vehicles worldwide in the October-to-December period, the statement said.

Despite its discouraging financial performance, Nissan intends to produce an average of 10 new vehicle models per year in 2009-2012, the statement said.

In 2007, the latest year for which figures are available, Nissan sold 116,500 cars in Russia, and it plans to start production at a new facility in St. Petersburg later this year.
