Former Daimler CEO praises Tesla, but says Germans remain permanently ahead


Former Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche recently discussed his thoughts about the electric car revolution and the role played by American electric automobile manufacturer Tesla. Speaking with Handelsblatt, the prior Daimler executive mentioned what he considers are Elon Muskstrengths, Tesla’therefore achievements, and German automakers will be forward. 

Without obligations to a particular automaker and retired, Zetsche publicly commended Elon Musk, saying that he adores the adventuresome Tesla CEO. Part of this can be due to Musk’s centers, that can be centered on compelling humanity. “Elon includes a mission, he would like to address the issues of humanity,” he said, adding that the American electric automobile manufacturer has done a excellent service to electromobility using its “absurdly quick” EVs. 

That said the prior Daimler CEO noted that he has reservations regarding Tesla and its own potential. Tesla has gone all on battery technology, and it has pursued massive projects such as Gigafactory 1 at Nevada to fasten it. Zetsche noticed that he considers it’s wrong to rely particularly as batteries themselves are already changing quickly.

Despite his admiration for Elon Musk, Zetsche considers that based automakers will likely be. Volkswagen, BMW, and Daimler are making large moves. Daimler, for you, will be seeking to transition half Mercedes-Benz’s vehicles to electric from 2030as well as the business plans to abandon additional internal combustion engine developments.

The ex-CEO said that fuel cell vehicles which are powered by hydrogen may be futile as they lack the necessary infrastructure which would allow long excursions, to put the record straight. This is something which has been addressed by the Tesla Supercharger Network along with systems such as IONITY, which provide services for EVs. 

Inasmuch as the prior CEO’s statements come contemplating his enormous experience in the auto industry, Zetsche seems to have missed the simple fact that Tesla is in the process of future-proofing its own battery technology. Apart from continuous improvements which are employed on its own battery cells in Gigafactory 1, Tesla also seems to be well into the evolution of its next-generation batteries, according to its recent purchase of companies such as Maxwell Technologies. 

Daimler has started its moves together with the firm releasing the EQC under its Mercedes-Benz brand. While the automobile has been Daimler has struck some challenges. The business has recalled lots of its EQC components because of a fault which could cause the SUV to stall, or worse, influence the capability of the vehicle leading to a heightened probability of a crash.
