Daimler Research & Development Chief Markus Schäfer was recently interviewed by Automobilwoche and said that Daimler is not only concentrating on battery technology but is also focusing more on fuel cell technology.
Schäfer is quoted as saying that “Will it be the battery-electric vehicle alone that makes driving more sustainable? No, the fuel cell will also play an important role, ”
The magazine also stated that “Daimler is in a veritable crisis. The profit fell by two thirds in 2019, the new CEO Ola Källenius has to set new priorities – and Daimler has apparently done that now. Development chief Markus Schäfer announced that Daimler would not only focus on battery-electric driving but would increasingly focus on the fuel cell. “
