FRANKFURT, March 1 (Reuters) - German carmaker Daimler has agreed to buy Europcar’s 25 percent stake in car-sharing service Car2Go for 70 million euros ($85 million), the two companies said on Thursday, paving the way for a car-sharing alliance with BMW.
A person familiar with the matter told Reuters in January that Daimler and BMW were close to agreeing to combine their car-sharing services Car2Go and DriveNow.
BMW in January bought out its partner Sixt from DriveNow. ($1 = 0.8205 euros) (Reporting by Maria Sheahan; Editing by Edwina Gibbs)
