Daimler's Weber Sees It's Ahead in Battery Technology
TGART -- Daimler AG is positioning itself as a leader in electric-vehicle technology through a partnership with chemicals and energy conglomerate Evonik Industries, of Duesseldorf, Germany.
Daimler plans to produce lithium ion cells and whole batteries with Evonik, while cells from Evonik subsidiary Li-Tec soon will be installed in Mercedes-Benz cars.
The deal makes Daimler the only automaker with r&d and production of lithium ion cells and batteries under one umbrella, says Daimler R&D chief Thomas Weber.
But Daimler and Evonik want to find a third partner to provide expertise in electrical and electronic systems integration, he says.
