Stuttgart-based Daimler is a German maker of cars, buses and trucks. The company had a bumper year in 2015, with its operating profit jumping by 36 percent and group revenue up 15 percent.
Once again, the solid annual earnings were driven largely by decent growth at its Mercedes-Benz division. This page collates the latest DW content on the company.
The German government is taking action over Daimler's alleged manipulation of emissions data. Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt has summoned the German carmaker's executives to Berlin, while the sector's regulator is also looking into the matter.
Thomas Sattelberger, a former senior Lufthansa, Telekom and Daimler executive, is a harsh critic of German corporate culture. He believes VW senior executives haven't come clean about what they knew about the emissions cheating before the scandal became public.
