Gute Zusammenfassung der Aktivitäten von Daimler-Großaktionär Geely in den letzten Jahren, bei Autonews/Bloomberg:
Since Li’s arrival, Daimler has deepened ties with long-standing China partner BAIC Group on electric cars, with the Mercedes-Benz maker taking a near 4 percent stake in a BAIC venture.
Li’s strategy, meanwhile, became clearer with last month’s unveiling of plans to start making his Lynk & CO mid-market brand in Europe from next year, the first Chinese vehicles to be built outside their home market. Lynk, which started sales in China last year, will produce the 01 SUV at Volvo’s plant in Ghent, Belgium.
Since 2010’s acquisition of Volvo Cars from Ford Motor and 2013’s purchase of the iconic London Taxi Company, which has since started making electric black cabs, Li has added to his web of foreign brands and companies.
