German car giants set to partner up to rival Uber

Germany car manufacturers BMW have gone it alone by buying out its partner Sixt from their joint project DriveNow. 

This move is said to have now opened up the opportunity for wider car-sharing options and a future driverless taxi partnership with fellow German giants Daimler to compete against competitors like Uber. According to sources at Reuters the German power houses are close to securing a deal which would combine both BWM’s DriveNow and Daimler’s Car2Go services. 

Whilst it is yet to be confirmed the vehicle manufacturers it’s said the two companies would like to see a partnership which could potentially focus on ride-hailing, digital parking and electric car charging facilities.
