Daimler, which had about 299,000 employees at the end of 2019, disputed the report. “We’ve only communicated one number, and that’s the 1.4 billion euro in savings we’re targeting," Joerg Howe, head of communications at the automaker, told Bloomberg News. “Anything else is speculation on behalf of Automobilwoche."
