BERLIN (Reuters) -- Volkswagen may use fewer temporary staff as part of efforts to reduce costs by 5 billion euros ($6.3 billion), CEO Martin Winterkorn told a German magazine.
The carmaker does not want to reduce permanent staff, Winterkorn was quoted as saying by Spiegel in an article published on Sunday.
"Perhaps we will use fewer temporary staff," he told the magazine.
Winterkorn has previously said VW may decide to cease making non-profitable models such as convertibles. He also told Spiegel that the company was taking a hard look at its Eos convertible model as it tries to cut complexity by reducing the number of different models it offers.
