        BMW Group and Toyota Motor Corp. Agree to Further Strengthen Collaboration

        Akio Toyoda, president of Toyota Motor Corp., met late last week with Norbert Reithofer, chairman of the board of management of BMW Group, at its headquarters in Munich, Germany, to announce the planned expansion of their existing cooperation initiated in December last year.

        The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) aimed at a long-term strategic collaboration in four fields:

        —joint development of a fuel cell system
        —joint development of architecture and components for a future sports vehicle
        —collaboration on powertrain electrification
        —joint research and development on lightweight technologies

        Also, Reithofer and Toyoda signed a joint statement to reconfirm their companies’ shared intention to strengthen the long-term, strategic collaboration between them.

        Reithofer said, “We aim to further strengthen our competitive position in sustainable future technologies. We signed an MoU to this effect today. Toyota and the BMW Group share the same strategic vision of sustainable individual future mobility. Together, we have a great opportunity to continue leading our industry through this transformation.”


        I'm unsure of the source - I got that in an email from a friend who works for Manheim.

            This is mostly about sharing electric powered car tech. Doubtful any real enthusiast sports car will come out of this.

                new car: BMW Prius ///M. Gets the same MPG as a 1987 325e, only it costs $60k, is ugly as fuck, and drives like a Camry.

                woot!

                  Most people don't realize that almost all car companies share with other ones. For the most part they are all tied together in one way or another.
                  Even your prestigious mercedes had a merger with chrysler around 10 years ago and they were using mercedes parts in chryslers.

                      I'm just going to leave this here and hope BMW doesn't trade their soul in this merger.
