BMW and DaimlerChrysler to cooperate on development of a hybrid drive system

Muamer Hodzic March 1, 2007

Well it seems like Mercedes will work with their arch rival from Bavaria – BMW. I am not sure if I really like this idea of collaboration, but as long as the deal will provide Mercedes with new technology and better products, I guess I am for it. The two companies will expand their collaboration in the field of hybrid drive systems and will participate as equal partners in the development of an innovative hybrid module for rear-wheel-drive premium segment cars. Both carmakers plan to commercialise the new module within the next three years. This collaboration will allow the two companies to share their extensive know-how and to achieve increased efficiency through economies of scale.

  2. I like the idea of BMW and Benz collaborating. They are arch-rivals, but they are both amazing cars from Germany, and the fact that they’re sticking together on this gives the impression that although they are extremely competitive, they are still friendly toward each other and have respect for each other. I think it’s great because anybody who is honest and unbiased has to acknowledge that they are both awesome brands, it’s just a matter of personal taste which you prefer.
