Daimler, the oldest auto manufacturer in the world, has just got a sizable portion in the American car builder all-electric, Tesla. So, even before the ten % sale, both firms were working side by side together using the lithium-ion batteries of Tesla in the Smart electric auto of Mercedes Benz. Dr. Thomas Weber, Member of Board at Daimler AG said 'our strategic partnership is an important step to accelerate the commercialization of electric drives globally' because (Benz says) the future will be shaped up of electrically assisted cars at least.
Elon Musk, Tesla Motors Chairman and CEO said 'Daimler has set the benchmark for engineering excellence and vehicle quality for more than a century. It is an honor and a powerful endorsement of our technology that Daimler would choose to invest in and partner with Tesla'.
'Our strategic partnership is an important step to accelerate the commercialization of electric drives globally' stated Dr. Thomas Weber, Member of Board at Daimler AG, responsible for the Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. 'As a young and dynamic company, Tesla stands for visionary power and pioneering spirit. Together with Daimlerâ€™s 120 years of experience in the automotive sector this collaboration is a unique combination of two companiesâ€™ strengths. This marks another important milestone in Daimlerâ€™s strategy for sustainable mobility'.
'Daimler has set the benchmark for engineering excellence and vehicle quality for more than a century. It is an honor and a powerful endorsement of our technology that Daimler would choose to invest in and partner with Tesla' said Product Architect and Tesla Chairman, CEO Elon Musk.
'Daimler is also on the leading edge in the field of sustainable mobility. Among others the lithium-ion pouch-cell battery developed by Daimler and especially designed for automotive applications is of interest to us. We are looking forward to a strategic cooperation in a number of areas including leveraging Daimlerâ€™s engineering, production and supply chain expertise. This will accelerate bringing our Tesla Model S to production and ensure that it is a superlative vehicle on all levels'.
