Renault said on Thursday it would slash about 2,000 engineering and support jobs in France as it moves toward electric cars and has to hire workers in different positions.

The automaker has already announced around 4,600 job cuts in the country as part of a broad restructuring.

It was opening talks with unions about the recent plans.

Overall it will generate 500 net new jobs, after hiring 2,500 people in other functions, the automaker said.

The automaker also aims to build nine new car models in France.
