How to choose electric vehicle, what brand electric vehicle is good?
After slashing its workforce in January, Lime, an electric scooter rental startup, is considering further cuts in its U.S. workforce, according to TechWeb.
Executives are considering cutting between 50 and 70 jobs, mainly at its San Francisco headquarters, according to a person familiar with the matter.But for now, they haven't made a decision and are still discussing it.
One reason for the layoffs was the novel Coronavirus outbreak, which caused the company's orders to plummet.
Brad Bao and Toby Sun co-founded Lime at the end of 2016.Last May, Lime confirmed that Mr Bao would succeed Toby Sun as its new chief executive.
Previously, in mid-January, foreign media reported that Lime would lay off about 14% of its workforce and exit 12 markets in the US and overseas.In the United States, the company will exit the Atlanta, Phoenix, San Diego and SAN Antonio markets.At the time, foreign media said the decision reflected the intense competition and profit pressures facing the electric scooter industry.
Now, many start-up companies have entered the field of electric scooters, such as Neutron and Bird.In addition, there are traditional auto makers entering the field, such as Audi.
Last year audi unveiled an electric scooter called the E-tron, which costs 2,000 euros ($2,244).
