Daimler says cooperation with BMW in engine development is possible

Published: Friday, October 26, 2007
German automakers BMW and Mercedes are likely to cooperate over engines, but any deal will not be concluded this year, says Daimler chief executive officer Dieter Zetsche. "We are entertaining discussions with a number of carmakers, including BMW," Zetsche said at the Tokyo Motor Show on Wednesday. "No decision has been made ... but ... I do not exclude cooperation, including in parts and other areas, with BMW," he said. "We are studying whether it makes sense, whether we can arrive at a win-win situation for both. Such a study takes time. It is unlikely that there will be a decision this year -- probably next year." Last week, German magazine Auto Bild reported that Daimler was planning to use four-cylinder direct injection engines developed by BMW's Mini brand and built by PSA Peugeot Citroen in the next generation of Mercedes B-Class compact cars. Daimler and BMW already cooperate in bringing out dual-mode hybrids together with General Motors.
