Mitsubishi Motors is to introduce an early retirement programme to phase out up to 1,200 jobs, Kyodo News reported.

The ailing car maker will offer the programme to staff aged 40 or older who have been on the payroll for at least 10 years.

About 9,000 of the company's 24,700 current employees would qualify, Mitsubishi said.
