TOKYO -- Nissan Motor plans to cut 12,500 jobs, or about 10% of its global workforce, by the end of March 2023, the Japanese automaker said Thursday as it seeks to bring production in line with falling sales.

The planned reductions are more than double the job losses that the company announced in May.
