Next month, German carmaker Daimler may conclude an agreement on the sale of 50% of Smart, the division of Chinese Geely, which became Daimler’s majority shareholder last year. This was reported by sources familiar with the situation. The Smart division of the German automaker is unprofitable. Its sales per year are about 130 thousand cars.
