Swedish carmaker Volvo on Friday announced it was cutting some 2,000 jobs as it unveiled third-quarter results showing a five-percent drop in group net sales.

"As part of the previously announced Group-wide efficiency programme, a directional decision has been made to rationalise white collars in staff and support functions by approximately 2,000 employees and consultants," the firm said in a statement.
