BMW joins in with Daimler for a new division of “mobility services” which has aim of becoming a world player through “organic growth” as well as “acquisitions”, reported the chief financial officer of Daimler, Bodo Uebber. In Uebber’s words:
“We want to grow significantly and we are in a position to handle large acquisitions”.
 
The leading two “luxury carmakers” of Germany revealed their plans of bringing together both the business to shape up the “new services” like “car-sharing and electric vehicle charging” in an attempt to match up the competition of Uber from the U.S. as well as the Didi Chuxing from China.
 
Both the parties will be holding fifty percent of the upcoming venture, while the Uebber hinted that headquarter of the same will mostly be in Germany.
