According to Reuters, Daimler CEO Bodo Uebber disclosed to reporters that, “I told my guys, go back to Tesla and look for other opportunities” to go work together. “We want to look for more cooperation,” he said.


In May 2009, Daimler acquired nearly 10 percent of Tesla’s shares; two months later, 40 percent of those shares were sold to an investment firm in Abu Dhabi.
