MUMBAI -- Japanese automaker Nissan Motor will slash more than 2,500 jobs in India and Indonesia by March 2020 as part of a downshift in global production to cope with slumping car sales, according to details of the company's plans obtained by Nikkei.

The company will eliminate 1,700 jobs in India -- the biggest losses of any country affected by the first round of 6,400 cuts -- and 830 in Indonesia. Nissan and its emerging-market brand Datsun have struggled to gain traction in both Asian countries, even as other Japanese automakers fared well.
