Ford is planning seven new electric models in Europe, a battery-assembly site in Germany and a nickel cell manufacturing joint venture in Turkey as part of a major electric vehicle (EV) push on the continent

Ford plans to cut up to 3,200 jobs across Europe and move some product development work to the United States, Germany's IG Metall union said on Monday, vowing action that would disrupt the carmaker across the continent if the cuts go ahead.
Ford wants to axe up to 2,500 jobs in product development and up to a further 700 in administrative roles, with German locations most affected, IG Metall said.
Workers at the U.S. carmaker's Cologne site, which employs around 14,000 people - including 3,800 working at a development centre in the neighbourhood of Merkenich - were informed at works council meetings on Monday of the plans.
