WARSAW, Poland — Daimler AG does not rule out cooperating with Tesla Inc. in future even though the German luxury car producer sold its stake in the electric-vehicle company, Daimler's CEO told a Polish newspaper.
Dieter Zetsche told the daily Rzeczpospolita that after selling the Tesla shares he "never regretted it. This does not exclude a cooperation in a future."
The maker of Mercedes-Benz cars sold its 4 percent stake in Tesla in 2014. Last month it unveiled its electric utility to compete with Tesla, which has dominated the growing market for premium battery cars.
Zetsche, who is set to leave his post in May, said he saw no reason to buy Tesla shares again.
